A LOCAL courier firm has added six new vehicles to its delivery fleet following a period of rapid growth, which has seen it provide nationwide delivery services to more Northamptonshire-based businesses than ever before.

Action Express, part of the UK’s largest independent parcel network, APC Overnight, has taken delivery of six new Mercedes-Benz sprinter vans to meet a 20 per cent growth in demand for the company’s next-day delivery services.

The firm’s investment in the new delivery vehicles will give staff even more flexibility to meet the demands of customers nationwide assisting the network to deliver more than a million parcels a month.

Founded in 1982 with just one van and a bicycle, Action Express has gone from strength to strength thanks to its commitment to providing exceptional service to a range of local businesses. As well as being a founding member of APC Overnight, the company is also a shareholding member of overnight palletised freight network, Pallet-Track.

Elaine Harries, Managing Director of Action Express, said: “The addition of six new sprinter vans to our fleet represents an extremely successful chapter in our business’s history. With more than 400 Northamptonshire businesses using our nationwide delivery service on a regular basis, we have a responsibility to maintaining exceptional service standards, which a larger fleet should certainly help us to achieve.

“Last year saw us record the busiest 12 months in our company’s history and having expanded even further since the turn of this year, we are hopeful that we can set the bar even higher this year.”
