Eezehaul sells APC Overnight Division to focus growth on complex supply chain service

Eezehaul, a leading logistics provider in the South, has announced the sale of its APC Overnight parcel division, the UK’s largest Independent next day parcel delivery network.

This is the latest move in Eezehaul’s growth strategy to concentrate on developing its already successful expansion into more complex supply chain and warehousing solutions.

Fellow APC operator, Streetwise Couriers, is buying the operation and the membership shareholding in APC. Streetwise Couriers has 25 years experience in the sector and already operates three other APC depots in Surrey and the Midlands.  

Eezehaul’s managing director, Mark Duggan, said: “APC is a fantastic operation that we have built up over the past decade to be one of the largest contributors to the overnight parcel network nationally.  However, our growth strategy is to focus on the more complicated supply chains of some the largest manufacturing companies in the UK and beyond. The sale of our stake in APC represents a significant further step in the execution of this strategy."

Since Eezehaul’s move to larger premises in 2010, quadrupling its warehousing space to 80,000 sq ft, it has become more evident that the added value for its customers is in the solutions it finds for their supply chain movements.

“Over the past 18 months, Eezehaul has developed and invested in a high level of internal expertise and state of the art technology to support our customers’ intricate supply chain requirements.

“This sale will allow greater capability and capacity for distribution, warehousing and fulfilment, allowing us to realise our business plan whilst minimising disruption to APC customers and ensuring continuity for our logistics customers,” said Mark Duggan.

Martin Russell, MD of Streetwise Couriers said: “Buying this additional stake in APC is a key opportunity for us to further develop our APC operations. We are delighted to be adding the Crawley depot to our business network.”

The sale will have no effect on customers of APC. It will be business as usual from the depot, ensuring the smooth transition to the new ownership effective from September 19.  Following the transition period, Streetwise Couriers will operate the APC depot from the former Eezehaul premises in Lowfield Heath, Crawley.

Eezehaul is located on the Manor Royal Estate, Crawley – the Gateway to the South East with close links to all essential transport routes within the UK and Europe.  It was established in 1998 and employs 70 people to include warehouse staff, drivers and office personnel.  The company has a turnover in the region of £7million.
