Wolverhampton, UK, 27 June 2008 – APC Overnight, the UK's largest overnight parcel delivery network, has recently appointed two additional industry experts to its Board of Directors. Jon Barber, owner of Scarlet Couriers, and Syed Ziaullah, owner of Action Express, join the existing team of parcel logistics experts, comprising Quentin Abel, Paul Griffiths and Ivor Skinner. Barber takes on the role of Marketing Director, with Ziaullah taking up the mantle of Operations Director.
Barber has developed his Thames Valley-based Scarlet Couriers into one of the UK's largest independent couriers. He brings his skills in targeted branding and publicity to his new role at APC Overnight. “It's said that a brand is a promise that you make to the customer – underlining what people can expect of a company. Our brand stands for quality on a national scale, and our task is to make sure it is recognised wherever people need excellent delivery services,” says Barber.
Ziaullah is passionate about the parcel delivery business and his can-do attitude has proven to be the driving force of the 25 year history of his Northampton-based company Action Express. “The dedication of people involved in the network “from Day One” is a major APC strength, and the current Board offers and excellent balance of skills and experience to take the company forward,” adds Ziaullah.
