Fleet operator APC Overnight surges ahead with network expansion

APC Overnight is expanding with significant increases in warehousing and operational facilities focused on the Midlands and Southern Counties of England.

APC EDS Couriers in Cannock is now occupying a new site five times the size of its previous depot and warehouse. Andy Evans, EDS courier MD expects this upward trend to continue and says: “As we come out of recession, more businesses are sending more parcels at the same time as holding less stock themselves – and of course they still require reliable delivery to their customers the next day.”

APC Acclaim Parcel Express is servicing Portsmouth from a new local depot, adding to its existing businesses in Southampton and the Isle of Wight. The expansion was partly prompted by rising demand for stock control and distribution services.

APC Streetwise moved its Warwick operation to a new 10,000 sq ft site with a half acre loading bay, to accommodate expanding demand including daily fresh food deliveries to household name restaurateurs such as Heston Blumenthal and Raymond Blanc. The company also has facilities in Croydon, Leatherhead and New Malden, and Martin Russell, MD, says: “Overnight delivery is definitely where the growth is.” 

APC Scarlet Couriers has added a new 20,000 sq ft depot to its chain of facilities serving the Thames Valley and Chilterns. The Wycombe depot allows it to consolidate warehousing and distribution under one roof, and connects with existing locations as Martin Cavendish, Operations Director, explains: “Our Wycombe depot joins up our existing customer zones to provide APC services all the way from west of Reading via Slough and Uxbridge through to London’s Shepherds Bush.”

Other depots that have moved to new bigger sites include APC Roadlink, Bournemouth, APC TWC Parcel Collection Services in Shrewsbury and APC Eezehaul in Crawley.
