CitySprint expands with Northampton acquisition

CitySprint has acquired Crisis Courier Solutions, the Northampton based same-day courier.

Crisis’s Northampton site will become a CitySprint service centre and the staff will move across.

CitySprint chief Patrick Gallagher said: “This move helps further consolidate our position as the leading private same day distribution company, and we are very pleased to welcome Crisis Courier Solutions to CitySprint.”

CitySprint now has 3,000 couriers and reckons it can reach 87 per cent of the UK mainland in under an hour.

Helen O’Keeffe, MD of Crisis Courier Solutions, added: “This move means access to news services and a wider reach for our customers and more opportunity for our staff.”
