CitySprint takes over Woking courier company

CitySprint has taken over Eagle Express Worldwide Couriers, the Woking based firm founded in 1998. The deal covers all same day, UK overnight and international services.

Patrick Gallagher, chief executive of CitySprint, said: “This deal is another important step in CitySprint’s on-going growth strategy. We’re delighted to be increasing our presence in Woking and tapping into Eagle Express’s local knowledge.”

Eagle will remain in its current location in Old Woking and will transition over to the CitySprint brand this month.

The deal means that CitySprint now has some 2,000 couriers and a network of 35 UK service centres.
