Wolverhampton, UK, 18 November 2008 – Motorcycle parts specialist Bradbury Bros has seen a 15 per cent growth in its business thanks to reliable next day parcel logistics from APC Overnight that has enabled it to tap into the Scottish market. Traditionally providing service parts and lubricants to motorcycle shops throughout northern England via the APC Overnight network, Huddersfield-based Bradbury Bros recently extended its customer base to Scotland with a dedicated representative in Glasgow.
“The reach and exceptional reliability of APC Overnight's nationwide network has certainly helped us to grow our business – with the additional custom coming from Scottish clients this makes us a dominant player in northern Britain. Reliable service from APC Overnight has helped us achieve this and it goes to show that you can never underestimate the importance of your parcel logistics partner, particularly when you are trying to grow new business,” says Denis Bradbury, Managing Director.
There are a number of factors that makes APC Overnight a key part of Bradbury Bros' supply chain. “APC Overnight provides an integrated logistics solution allowing us to freely expand to new areas and deliver a rapid next day delivery service to our customers. The online booking system is excellent, for example. We enter the customer details once and this instantly logs the parcel onto the APC Overnight system. The system then automatically generates a barcoded shipping label, which we attach to the parcel and this is scanned by the courier on collection. This enables us to track our parcels online right up to the point of delivery to our customers. This NetDespatch powered online system saves us a lot of time and allows us to process orders right up to our late afternoon cut off time,” says Bradbury.
APC Overnight is the UK's largest next day delivery network with more than 125 local depots covering all areas of the country. The network specialises in timed deliveries, offering a choice of convenient morning or afternoon options as well as a Saturday service. APC Overnight collects, routes and delivers more than 1 million parcels each month with an impressive better-than-99.8% on-time delivery record.
