Northampton courier celebrates 20 years

By APC Overnight on 10th November 2014

In the 20 years since 1994, APC Overnight has sustained a period of considerable growth thanks to the co-operative nature of the company. Today, the network boasts 115 independently-owned delivery depots nationwide and has a turnover in excess of £88 million.

Since being originally founded back in 1982, Action Express has established a loyal base of local customers ranging from Sterling Press in Kettering to TPS Healthcare in Wellingborough. The Liliput Road courier now serves over 400 customers in total.

Founding director, Syed Ziaullah still owns the business today, although it is now run on a day to day basis by Managing Director Elaine Harries and supported by a team of 53 staff. At the unveiling, Managing Director Elaine Harries said:“It is absolutely fantastic to be able to celebrate this milestone with our staff. The last 20 years have been hugely successful for our business, having seen us to join forces with a national network of like-minded delivery companies. Given the introduction of the internet and more sophisticated ways to process parcels, the business we operate today has evolved completely from the one we ran 20 years ago. We can only hope that our success continues in the same vein for the next 20 years.”
