Speed Couriers look to a greener future for same-day deliveries

At Speed Couriers we have been providing fast courier services for more than 36 years and we are proud to say that some of our first-ever customers still use our services.

Over the years we have worked hard to always deliver unparalleled levels of service and the best standards of customer care.

This has led to us developing a competitive range of Same Day & Medical services including:

  • Urgent On Demand Same Day courier services
  • Pathology courier services
  • Pharmaceutical courier services
  • Nationwide same-day deliveries
  • Regular scheduled runs
  • Occasional and ad hoc bookings

As we move through the busy summer months and into the run-up to Christmas, Speed Couriers are continuing to add to our fleet with eco-friendly options for environmentally conscious courier services.

Working towards carbon-neutral courier services

While we are proud of our strong company history, we are not complacent about the future.

Recently our Managing Director took a trip to Iceland to see first-hand the impact of climate change.

To do our part to mitigate the risks of climate change, we have been working with our partners at Plannet Zero to establish a carbon-neutral position for our courier services.

Examples of this include our latest additions to our fleet:

  • Electric vans for net zero carbon same-day deliveries
  • New low emission refrigerated vans for safe delivery of chilled goods
  • New low emission long wheelbase vans for efficient transport of larger shipments

Our new vehicles can be seen with our brand-new company livery around Manchester and the North-West.

They are not easy to miss – the Speed Couriers logo and details of our services and carbon credentials are on all sides, as well as on the roof, in case you see us from a bridge or the top deck of a bus!

About our carbon-neutral commitment

The Plannet Zero team at Redshaw Advisors has certified Speed Couriers as Operational Carbon Neutral under the company’s One Two Zero offering.

This demonstrates our in-house appreciation of where carbon emissions are generated during our operations, and the steps we can take to reduce those emissions.

Where emissions cannot be reduced, the residual carbon footprint is offset, for net carbon-neutral operations overall.

By making this commitment, we are looking to a future of genuinely sustainable same-day deliveries so that we can continue to serve our loyal customer base for many more years to come.
