More Information On Our Same Day Courier Service

All vehicles are modern, well maintained and equipped with up-to-date communication and satellite navigation equipment. Vans are equipped with modern technology to divert them around most traffic congestion problems en route, ensuring prompt delivery of your consignment and minimising environmental impact.

Most vehicles are long wheelbase panel vans with a gross vehicle mass (GVM) of 3.5 tonnes but subject to availability we do have small and “midi” sized panel vans. With sufficient notice, 4+ metre extra long wheelbase 3.5 tonnes panel vans (and a 3.5 tonnes box van with tail lift) are also available.

As well as Route One Distribution’s reliable, professional business to business same day courier service, our customers also value our exhibition logistics service and our European courier service. Naturally all drivers are equipped with the usual personal protective equipment, including hi-viz waistcoats, safety footwear, gloves etc. to meet your and your customers’ H&S requirements.

We can send any special delivery instructions you may have or any site specific requirements directly to the driver.
