APC Overnight is doubling the size of its next day delivery services capability in Bristol with a move to a larger depot. The new APC distribution centre, which is owned and managed by APC Priority Express, will allow customers to take advantage of later collections for overnight sortation and next morning delivery throughout the UK. This major investment in new warehousing and distribution facilities is the result of year-on-year business growth and will extend APC’s service offerings in south-west England.

“We considered an out-of-town depot, but the new location keeps us in the heart of Bristol, allowing us to provide later collections for our customers to better suit the needs of their business. APC Priority Express customers can confidently extend their selling hours and their customers will still receive their orders the following day. This large investment gives us capacity to cope with an increasing number of deliveries we are handling for APC Overnight and will also help us to maintain the highest levels of service for our customers,” says Neil Havill, Managing Director at APC Priority Express.

The company is also investing in new materials handling equipment for the opening of the new site and will continue its investment in cutting-edge IT and telephony systems. The building itself will be co-branded giving APC Overnight high visibility to the surrounding businesses in the busy St Philips industrial zone.

Neil Havill added: “We have continued to grow the business by more than 10 per cent each year and this is the case with many of our associated depots throughout the national APC Overnight network. Our aim is to ensure that we are always in a position to provide service excellence to our network partners and our customers. As demand grows, we will continue to invest in additional resources, including staff and more vehicles when necessary. We are very proud of our association with APC Overnight and expect to see continued growth in the coming years, despite the difficult economic climate.”
