GOVMAIL reaches the parts…

Nightspeed Secure Worldwide

Express has launched GOVMAIL in partnership with the Government Car and Despatch Agency (GCDA) which provides secure inter-departmental sameday delivery and collection service for the Government and wider public sector.

Originally part of Group 4 security, Nightspeed has signed a ten-year public private partnership deal which will be dedicated to secure parcels transit for the Government. As part of the overall contract, new regional account wins include NHS Logistics, The Office of Government Commerce (OGC) and the Home Office as well as Northamptonshire Police, the National Assembly for Wales, Her Majesty’s Prison Wormwood Scrubs, the West Country Ambulance Service, English Heritage and the DVLA.

The service caters for these regular scheduled deliveries and collections outside of London, using the 25 Nightspeed Secure Worldwide Express depots throughout the UK and Nightspeed European, Eire and Worldwide Services for overseas deliveries.

Kelly Long, partnership manager at Nightspeed Secure Worldwide Express, comments: “The nationwide scope of this new partnership is important. Government departments are increasingly locating to the regions and, with devolution, there is more demand for a service which reaches all parts of the UK. We are also keen for the wider public sector to make use of the new service.”

Nick Matheson, chief executive of GCDA, adds: “GOVMAIL offers a top class range of services combining the specialist parcels knowledge and services of Nightspeed Secure Worldwide Express with the proven capabilities of GCDA to deliver a streamlined, efficient UK national and international tailored delivery network for Government.”
