CitySprint swoops for Midlands courier
Surrey-headquartered distribution giant CitySprint has acquired a same day courier in the Midlands.
Crisis Courier Solutions, based in Northampton, was formed in 2004 and offers same day, next day, international and specialist delivery services.
As part of the deal, all Crisis Solutions staff will be transferred to CitySprint and its Northampton base will become a CitySprint service centre.
CitySprint chief executive Patrick Gallagher said: "This deal allows us to enhance our service to our existing customers with the addition of a new service centre, and gives Crisis Courier Solutions’ customers access to our national network and first class technology."
Helen O'Keeffe, managing director of Crisis Courier Solutions, added: "We are delighted to join the CitySprint family, who share our passion and expertise in same day deliveries.
"We will be working hard to ensure the transition will be a smooth and seamless one for our customers, and look forward to offering them a wider reach and new services."
CitySprint is headquartered in Redhill and has a network of 3,000 couriers.
