Same day distribution company CitySprint has announced that it will hire 550 additional couriers across the UK, with the company focussing primarily on those with small and large vans.
The new couriers will be added to the pool of over 3,500 vans, bikes and cars, as CitySprint continues to grow its business and win new clients. They will provide support across all areas of the business, with a focus on the high-growth healthcare sector.
The demand for couriers comes as a rise in e-commerce orders outweighs delivery capacity.
Mark Footman, Chief Operating Officer at CitySprint said: “As a business, we have enjoyed another year of considerable growth — winning new clients and, most recently, acquiring Manchester-based same day courier company, EcoSpeed.
“We are committed to providing our 14,000+ clients with the best possible service all year round, which is why we’re bolstering the fleet to ensure we are prepared to face anything that comes our way over the busy summer months. We look forward to welcoming new suppliers on board, to help us deliver on these promises and stay ahead of our competitors.”
