city sprintCitySprint, the UK’s largest same-day distribution company, today announced its acquisition of Dartford based local and national delivery service, Bexley Couriers.

Since its establishment in 1988, Bexley Couriers has offered a range of local and national delivery services, through its diverse fleet from motorbikes to transit vans. Through this merger, Bexley Couriers’ customers will gain access to CitySprint’s unrivalled network of 3,000 couriers, which can reach 88% of the UK mainland population in under an hour.

The Bexley couriers and staff will move across to CitySprint, to ensure consistency of service for the Bexley Couriers’ customers.

Patrick Gallagher, CEO CitySprint commented, “This acquisition strengthens our regional network and our commitment to providing the best UK delivery service. We are delighted to welcome Bexley Couriers to CitySprint, and we look forward to bringing in their high-quality couriers as well as industry leaders such as Paul Johnson and John Weller.”

Paul Johnson, Founding Director at Bexley Couriers, commented “The move to join CitySprint is extremely exciting. Becoming a part of the CitySprint family will give us access to a range of new services as well as extended reach and opportunities for both our clients and staff.”
