Our story began in August 2017. After leaving the Electrical Wholesale industry, where he had spent the previous 23 years, Adrian Sullivan decided to purchase a van and began to contact former colleagues to find opportunities to deliver their stock. Offering his same day courier services, Adrian had the vision to create a courier company that was focused and committed to delivering on promises and with excellent customer service. Those values are what built ParcelPass into what it is today.
Working from his home with a broken laptop screen linked to his TV. ParcelPass was born. The early days were long and hard. While making deliveries and finding work on the courier exchange, Adrian also spent his spare time networking and contacting potential clients to grow his new business. With the help of local companies and his experience in a customer service focused Industry, Adrian began to build relationships and the business began to flourish. It was soon time for Adrian to find additional drivers to help with the workload.
By October 2017, Adrian had received his first enquiry for a 7.5T vehicle. ParcelPass were now becoming more than just a same day courier service.
Adrian needed to create relationships with other transport companies to enable ParcelPass to quote and win business for larger vehicles.
In March 2018, Richard Silvester joined the company. A former colleague of Adrian’s, Richard joined to help the business grow and take control of the operations, planning and arranging the deliveries we were tasked with. March also saw our first contract and approval with a leading Logistics company, supplying additional transport from small vans to Artic Lorries. New partnerships and relationships were being built and the company went from strength to strength.
By April 2018 the business was growing quickly and the decision was made to create ParcelPass Transport Ltd.
More approvals with leading logistics companies followed and we had now added European Haulage to our services. In July, Caroline joined the company to take control of the accounts and finances bringing more experience into the team. A new booking system was installed allowing us to offer our customers online bookings, instant quotations and automatic delivery confirmation emails. ParcelPass also began to venture into International Freight, importing goods from China and Africa for our customers.
That brings us to today. ParcelPass Transport Ltd is 1 year old and much has changed since Adrian’s first day with his broken Laptop. ParcelPass are now an approved partner to some of the industries leading companies. We transport goods around the world and we still work closely with the companies that helped Adrian with his first deliveries. The future is exciting at ParcelPass and we welcome you to come and join us. Whether you are a small company or from a Multi-national organisation. One of our existing customers or a potential customer. Our friends or our competitors. Let’s embrace the future and work together for success.
