Speed Couriers sign new contract with Crown Commercial Service

Speed Couriers sign new contract with Crown Commercial Service. Speed Couriers are proud to have been awarded a new framework contract by Crown Commercial Services, confirming our status as an approved courier for government and public sector customers.

We originally entered into a contract agreement with CCS four years ago, but this latest renewal means we can continue to provide public sector courier services for a further four years, starting from August 2021. The contract allows Speed Couriers to quote for public sector work, bid for tenders and also have “direct award” contracts for existing work. We are proud to have had a couple of our current contracts go for direct award  which is a testament to the high standard of service we provide.

What services can Speed Couriers provide?

We have been approved to operate under four Lots of the CCS supplier framework, which means we can cater to a wide variety of different needs, budgets and deadlines, as well as transporting many different kinds of general and specialist goods. Under the CCS framework contract, Speed Couriers can provide services in the following areas:

  • Collection and delivery of general items including documents and parcels
  • Secure collection and delivery of valuable items (e.g. art and electronics)
  • Secure collection, storage and delivery of test papers (e.g. student exams)
  • Secure collection and delivery of specialist items (e.g. drugs and samples)

We are allowed to provide these services on a range of different timescales, from same day deliveries and overnight couriers, through to economy courier services to suit a wide range of different budgets.
