We are proud to announce our latest acquisition of Birmingham-based firm Network Logistics UK that specialises in same day logistics, marking the company’s third acquisition in six months.
Founded in 2004, Network Logistics UK was built up by current directors Craig Guthrie, David Costin and Paul Ryder to become an established courier service within the West Midlands with a fantastic reputation for reliability and focus on customer service. CitySprint has now acquired all of Network Logistics SameDay, Overnight and International Operations, which includes a local and national customer base.
This acquisition will support CitySprint’s expansion in mainland UK, providing Network Logistics’ customers with access to CitySprint’s 2,500 couriers and network of 37 UK service centres. In addition, customers will benefit from CitySprint’s investment in leading-edge technology such as its national, live courier-tracking system, automated status notifications and booking app, MyCourier.
Patrick Gallagher, Chief Executive of CitySprint, said: “This deal marks yet another important step forward in our growth strategy and will help us expand our reach and offering for our customers. This latest acquisition, combined with our strong organic growth, helps consolidate our position as the UK’s leading private same day distribution company.”
Craig Guthrie, Director of Network Logistics UK, added: “We are delighted to join our services with CitySprint who share our dedication and focus on customer service alongside providing the complete courier transport solution. We’ll be working together to ensure that the integration process is seamless. The contacts and numbers will remain the same, and for our customers it will be ‘business as usual’.”
Network Logistics UK’s employees will transfer to CitySprint, and the local contact details will remain the same.
