The courier branch of Addison Lee saw growth of 17 per cent for its same-day parcel service in 2015.
The facility, which guarantees to pick up and deliver in London in under 60 minutes, has more than 17,000 clients from law firms and investment banks, to television and technology clients. The majority of bookings are made on-line.
Catherine Faiers, Addison Lee chief operating officer, said:
The last mile deliveries are a real growth area for us. Many customers are demanding items within the hour and trust us because we won’t let them down. This, together with the growth from both corporate and consumer clients, mean that we expect to double in size within two years.
