The new proof of delivery system managed by Peak-Ryzex is part of APC Overnight’s strategic direction for continued growth. It will help with the delivery of high service levels for APC Overnight customers.
"With our network founded upon high quality overnight delivery services for a variety of private customers and businesses nationwide, it is imperative that we are able to maintain exceptionally high standards. Our new proof of delivery system will enhance the communication we have with our customers and ensure we are able to build on our customer service levels, which is already something we take a great deal of pride in." says Mark Clemence, Head of Information Technology.
