Courier firm wins Sprinter for a year

A Birmingham courier firm has been boosted by the addition of a new vehicle to its fleet, as part of a competition run by the APC Overnight network.

Trax Express Systems, which is part of the APC Overnight network, beat off competition from over 100 other delivery companies to win a year-long lease of a new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van supplied by City West Commercial Vehicles in partnership with Midlands based Burnt Tree Contract Hire.

The addition of the vehicle to its 36-strong fleet will help the courier firm to continue to provide a first-class delivery service for over 350 business customers across Birmingham and the West Midlands from its base on Mainstream Industrial Park.

With last year having seen the business deliver and collect a record 1,300,000 parcels, Trax is on course to raise the bar even higher this year, having already recorded a 28% increase in deliveries & collections.

Craig Mallabone, director at Trax said: “As we already have a number Mercedes-Benz sprinter vans within our fleet, we know our drivers can count on them for reliable and economical collection & delivery of parcels across Birmingham. We can’t underestimate the impact the addition of one new vehicle to our fleet will make as it will undoubtedly improve the service we offer for so many businesses in and around the city. The last 12 months couldn’t have gone much better for us as a business, and this really is the icing on the cake.”

Chris Cubitt, from City West Commercials added: “We like to do all we can to support independent couriers around the country as they provide such an important collection and delivery service for so many customers. Having drawn Trax Express Systems as the winner of our competition, we were only too happy to hand the keys over to one very happy customer.”
