CitySprint opens Sheffield service centre

CitySprint, the UK’s biggest same-day delivery company has opened its Sheffield service centre. Until recently Sheffield has been served by CitySprint’s Leeds service centre.

Increased demand from clients led to the investment in the Rotherham site that will also serve Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham, Scunthorpe, Worksop and Chesterfield as well as its neighbouring Leeds and Nottingham service centres. CitySprint Health will work with Sheffield Children’s Hospital and BMI Thornbury Hospital.

More than 60 CitySprint couriers already work into Sheffield, who will offer same-day courier, UK overnight delivery, international delivery and also warehousing, pick and pack solutions. The company is looking to take on 20 additional drivers for the service centre too.

Mark Phillipson, Regional Manager at CitySprint commented: “We are constantly looking for ways to evolve our offering in order to best serve our customers in South Yorkshire. Opening this new Sheffield Service Centre will enable us to do just this — helping us to meet demand and continue to deliver a first-class service to local businesses, no matter their size or the sector they operate in.”
