Steve, the founder of the Southampton branch, loves working in the same day courier industry and is a self-confessed “Italophile”. When he’s not giving up his free time coaching rugby or attending school governor meetings, you’ll find him making and cooking artisan pizzas at home, watching 1950’s Italian cinema or tinkering with his vintage Italian scooters. Customer service is his focus at work, something which he instils into his team.
With over 8 years of experience in logistics, including a year at Speedy Freight in 2022, Alex has returned to the Speedy Freight Southampton team. This decision was fueled by his love of interaction with customers and drivers. When not delivering exceptional service, he enjoys a strong cup of tea and cherishes time spent with his two little boys. His favourite jobs to complete for customers are urgent same day deliveries and he prides himself on the team’s ability to deliver on time, every time.
