Courier services have been used for as long as there has been civilisation. In ancient times your couriers were in the form of runners, homing pigeons and horseback riders. Foot messengers would have to physically run kilometres to their destinations. The first documented courier service was in 2400BC. Egyptian pharaohs used couriers for sending their written documents.

Have you ever thought about the life of a courier driver or the services our courier division has to offer?
All are deliveries are given a time slot, ensuring you are made aware of when your parcel is going to arrive. This ensures you can be present to sign for your parcel, or arrange a time when you will be available.
Courier driving can be very stressful and very fast paced. It is very much like Marmite – you either love it or hate it. With most items being classed as priority, our drivers have a 15 minute window to collect important engine components and deliver them to an approved motorsport facility. It is very unpredictable as to the start and finish times. This is due to the increased volume of traffic causing delays, road courses and diversions, making it near enough impossible to estimate a finish time. Luckily for The KPD Group; ourselves, and our staff thrive on what the job entails.
