Chester and Liverpool Franchisee- scoops Franchisee of the Year

What a year 2020 was, a global pandemic impacted every one of us. As a network Speedy Freight same day courier service truly pulled together and played a part in fighting back against Covid-19. Whilst it was a tough year, causing significant concern, our network grew and we developed and launched new systems and processes that put us in a strong position to deliver our long term strategy, meeting client’s needs. Our core values came through, the network stood strong and supported one another.


We scaled up in a matter of hours for major ecommerce clients, offering a home delivery service, delivering over 1 million consignments to people’s homes in the first 8 weeks of lockdown. Whilst also supporting the Covid effort, moving vital PPE, test kits and equipment.


We launched our import and export Freight service to support clients to navigate the challenges Brexit has caused businesses- offering everything from paper work only services to paperwork, transport and onward transit.


It is really important we recognise the efforts of our branch teams throughout the UK, so this year, we held our awards online.
