Situated in the East Midlands, Peterborough has a Norman cathedral, (home to Henry VIII’s first wife), a bronze age museum, and a vibrant city scene but more importantly Peterborough has become a key logistics hub for the region. 
The city’s easy transport links for road and rail include easy access to the A1, A47 and allow direct freight routes to the rest of the country. Peterborough’s industrial areas span all industrial sectors and this is reflected in the broad range of industry, including the whole agri-food supply chain, advanced manufacturing, print, digital, IT, logistics, warehousing and construction, among others. Peterborough train station is mainly served by EMR, LNER, and Thameslink trains.

More about our courier services:

We have been busy in the background strengthening our customer service over the years. We want the process to be easy to book, easy to understand and easy to choose. The best way we found to achieve this is through building trust with our customers. We are proud of our high profile customer base and we keep training and reminding all our couriers to be reliable and trustworthy, for them and for you. Opening an account is free and easy too and our portal allows you to keep track of what you bought, how it went and what it cost. Simple, easy, direct and honest.

Although “Goods in Transit” insurance is not required by law, in reality any trustworthy business offering courier services, has it. Our insurance automatically covers your consignment on a “full liability” basis up to certain value thresholds based on the van size. Between £10,000 for the small vans up to £20,000 for the large vans and we have some customers that require extra insurance as standard. Not a problem. You are covered. It’s a part of how we build trust. We also offer ADR insurance, valuable antiques insurance, and commercial training equipment insurance. Whatever type of insurance you need the chances are – we offer it already

Hazardous goods, daily pharmaceuticals, food, print, low and high tech manufacturing, documents, ebay items, builders products, plumbers products, exhibition equipment, hotel laundry, homebuyer contracts, wholesale products like clothing and homewares, the list is endless. On any given day we will carry something that is very special to the sender. With so many options to cover off we have learned to hold a broad fleet choice. So you can trust us to load it safely, carry it safely and deliver it properly, the way you want.
