Celebrating their 10 year anniversary, sales director Nick Thompson from The Courier Company Nationwide shared some thoughts on their success as a business.
“The earliest record of transporting of goods is from the ancient Egypt where the couriers would deliver documents carved in stone. Ancient Egyptians also had to move materials at great distances in order to build the famous pyramids. In Ancient Greece, one of the most celebrated couriers is the Greek messenger who having participated in the Battle of Marathon ran 26 miles to Athens to announce his victory. This physical exertion caused him to collapse and die, but his memory lived on in the form of the Olympic Marathon.
“Here at The Courier Company Nationwide we pride ourselves on knowing what we are talking about, having knowledge of the history of the industry is great thing to have. 2023 saw our business celebrate it’s 10 year anniversary, no mean feat in our current climate. We have also expanded the business this year to 18 vehicles running nationally including establishing a small hub in the North West.
“As a forward thinking business we are always looking to build on our success, and we would love the opportunity to expand our network in the North West much like we have done in Cambridgeshire, all we ask is for the opportunity to quote! We also love to get involved in local communities and charities – always good to give something back. This year saw our local air ambulance (MagPas) forced to move to a new headquarters. To help with the smooth running of the move our company stepped in, and 7 volunteer colleagues spent a Saturday in September to help achieve this, utilising our fleet of vehicles and a huge amount of goodwill making sure this life saving charity could carry on doing what they do best.”
