After a decade working with Uk Pallets, Euro-Tran Despatch begins work with our new partners at the UPN Pallet Network today Monday 16th of July. Deciding last year that we needed to find a network with better IT and Tracking procedures we have completed our six months notice and tonight we change. We would like to thank UK pallets for the service provided for over a decade, (Before Uk mail bought the network several years ago we were partners within Weaver Pallet express as it was then known.) and we wish them well for the future.
A new era starts today and we are excited at the new experience.
Dear Valued Customer
The countdown for the 2012 London Olympics has started. These games are the largest sporting event ever staged in the UK and have been hailed by Peter Hendy – London’s Transport Commissioner as “Britain’s largest peacetime logistical exercise”.
The expected number of spectators alone is estimated at 9 million plus, this in addition to all the Athletes and Officials, will have a tremendous impact on all businesses. Not only in central London, but also other parts of the UK where events are taking place.
With the changes to routes, road closures and additional vehicle security there will inevitably be disruptions and obstacles to overcome.
We have been working very closely with the Olympic Working Party for a number of months to ensure that the disruption is kept to a minimum, in the run up to and during the weeks of the games.
There will be additional vehicles operating within the severely impacted areas to maintain our high service levels. Despite this there may be circumstances beyond our control where deliveries / collections may be affected.
Please be absolutely confident that APC Overnight will provide its very best endeavours throughout this challenging period. An Olympic guide is available from our Ron Roberts which indicates ORNs/PRNs Olympic Lockdown areas etc, and best advice to clients during the games. Please call and Ron will e-mail you a copy.
We will continue to keep you informed of any updated information as this is made available to us, please go to the website for daily updates www.apc-overnight.com.
MD Euro-Tran Despatch
As you are all no doubt aware. Euro-Tran Despatch/ APC offices will be closed on Monday the 4th June / Tuesday the 5th June due to the re-arranged bank holiday and the Queens Jubilee Celebrations. All Friday despatches will therefore (Unless booked for a Saturday premium delivery) arrive with your clients on Wednesday the 6th June.
Whatever you get up to over the extended weekend we hope you enjoy it. Have a good one.

Preventing Business Crime.
We have today attended a meeting of local business representatives at the Skipton Business Watch. Many of the Snaygill/Airedale Business Park Companies were represented. The objective of the scheme is to enable local business’s to pool resource together for the benefit of the business Community, in Particular Crime Prevention. This is something we as a company have long since placed a priority on and lets hope the scheme moves forward. As a local trader we shall contact many of the companies on the estate with a view to learning more about what we can do to help ourselves as a business community. Thanks to all those attending.

Another APC accolade

Researched and compiled by FASTRACK, and sponsored by Price Wayerhouse Coopers the survey lists the top 100 profit builders in the current economic marketplace.

APC were the only company in the 100 representing our troubled industry. Well done APC.

APC has crowned a dramatic year by walking away with the West Midlands Business of the Year title. Sponsored by the EXPRESS AND STAR.
Chief executive Syed Ziaullah said: “This is truly amazing. This is a true endorsement and demonstrates the passion and hard work of everyone at APC.”
It comes after the Essington company announced plans for a £12 million new sorting centre to be built in Cannock this year, creating 300 new jobs, in the wake of a 70 per cent hike in profits in 2011.
Winner of our i-pad competition
We have a winner for our i-pad competition. So many of the entrants confused the launch of APC with the launch of Euro-Tran Despatch. So to set the record straight.
Euro-Tran Despatch first launched in May 1987. Thats right – in May this year we celebrate 25 years in business.
. APC was incorporated ‘Sept 93′ … first Director was named ‘Nov 93′ but the year we were looking for was when we formed to move the first parcels –
28th February 1994 – Thats right 18 years ago TODAY…..
Only 12 people from 7 different companies went into the hat with the correct answer.
The lucky winner was Charlotte Moran from R A Medical in Steeton.
Congratulations to Charlotte, Our Ron Roberts will get the prize to you by the end of the week. A new competition will be launched in March.
Many thanks to all who entered
