CitySprint: keeping operations moving during this year’s peak
UK same day distribution company, CitySprint, has announced that it is looking for over 600 couriers across the UK. The new recruits will support with ongoing logistics demand during this year’s peak season and beyond, as the business continues to grow.
The weeks leading up to Christmas are the busiest time of the year for many businesses and retailers across the UK, and the logistics sector is no different, with increasing demand for fast delivery turnarounds and much larger volumes.
The couriers will join CitySprint’s fleet of over 3,500 couriers across the UK, with the business hiring across a range of vehicles, with a particular focus on small and large vans. They are also looking to employ drivers for their electric vehicles as they continue to expand their electric van fleet by another 40 by the end of 2022, with more due to be rolled out in the early part of 2023.
Mark Footman, Chief Operations Officer at CitySprint, commented: “Our focus is always on providing our clients with the best possible service and, in turn, helping them do the same for their customers. Getting the festive-season supply chain right can be difficult and we understand how important this time of year is for everyone. With just over eight weeks to go until Christmas, we’re making sure we have the right team in place to provide a first-class service for our customers to help keep their operations moving during this year’s peak season. We’re also bolstering our fleet to support the ongoing demand we foresee in January 2023 and beyond.”
