CitySprint to hire 1,000 couriers for Christmas rush

CitySprint launches ‘on the dot’ delivery

CitySprint has announced that it’s looking to hire more than 1,000 additional couriers in preparation for the Christmas rush.

The new recruits will join CitySprint’s fleet of more than 3,500 couriers across the UK, helping to ease the increased pressure on the delivery network, to support their high growth segments such as ecommerce and food delivery, and also to ensure a smooth service for clients throughout peak season.

For CitySprint, the increased demand starts before Black Friday and runs right through until Christmas itself.

Last year, the busiest day for the distribution network was Tuesday, December 20, as Brits put the final preparations in before Christmas.

CitySprint’s chief executive Patrick Gallagher said: “Peak season is one of the most demanding times of the year for our customers, with delivery volumes increasing significantly both for CitySprint and our retail brand, On the dot.

“We are committed to providing each of our clients with a first-class service all year round, which is why we’re pulling out all the stops to ensure our fleet is prepared to face anything that comes our way.”
