CitySprint has acquired Northampton-based same day courier firm, Crisis Courier Solutions. Founded in 2004, Crisis Courier Solutions is one of Northamptonshire’s leading courier services, offering same day, next day, international and specialist courier services.
The merger will give Crisis Courier Solutions’ customers access to CitySprint’s network of 3,000 couriers, which the company claims can reach 87% of the UK mainland population in under an hour. All of Crisis Courier Solutions’ staff will move across to CitySprint, and the Northampton site will become a CitySprint service centre.
Patrick Gallagher, CEO, CitySprint, said, “This deal represents another growth milestone for CitySprint, as we continue to improve our reach and access for customers in the UK. This move helps further consolidate our position as the leading private same day distribution company, and we are very pleased to welcome Crisis Courier Solutions to CitySprint.”
Helen O’Keeffe, managing director, Crisis Courier Solutions, said, “We are extremely pleased to be joining the CitySprint family, who share our passion and expertise in same day deliveries. This move means access to news services and a wider reach for our customers and more opportunity for our staff. We will be working hard to ensure the transition is a smooth and seamless one for our customers.”
