Courier Logistics opens new Rotherham depot

The APC network member, Rotherham based Courier Logistics has opened a new, 29,000 square foot parcel depot.

The first of two new depots planned for 2021, the 31 East depot is being opened to further develop its overnight and same-day delivery services. With its connection to The APC network it can also expand its national customer base.

This comes at a time where Courier Logistics has seen 24% year on year growth thanks in part due to five of its biggest customers achieving 100% growth.

Daniel Franey, director at Courier Logistics, said: “It’s so encouraging to see how businesses across Sheffield have proven their resilience and entrepreneurialism despite the challenges in the last year, with many of our customers thriving. SMEs across the region have had to adapt their business models, products, and accelerate their online presence in order to survive in recent months, and continue to do so. We are dedicated to supporting their agility and determination, providing them with improved service options and a local team on hand, working hard in partnership with them, to help them flourish in the years ahead.”

Jonathan Smith, Chief Executive at APC Overnight, said: “The strength and resilience of the UK’s SMEs throughout the ongoing pandemic continues to shine through. Already in 2021, we are seeing further demand for delivery services, as consumers continue to shop online and businesses continue to rely on carriers to get these items delivered. The ongoing dedication and hard work of our colleagues at Courier Logistics will be key to supporting this, ensuring that the needs of customers are recognised, and working closely with them to ensure those needs are met.”
