Since our inception, Quickline Couriers has experienced remarkable growth, building and maintaining relationships with a variety of customers from major blue-chip companies to smaller individual businesses nationwide. But where did it all begin?
Just like some of the most famous companies in the world, Quickline Couriers’ humble beginnings took place in co-founder and current director Andrew Martin’s garage!
Amongst a lawnmower, tumble dryer and Christmas decorations, Andrew and his business partner Stephen Doran identified a gap in a densely populated marketplace and decided to act. What followed was beyond even their expectations.
After less than 12 months of trading, the company had amassed a significant number of customers who, tired of increasing prices and poor service, had turned to Quickline with their same day needs.
The unparalleled level of service provided by our team at Quickline was a hit and before long the 16ft x 8ft makeshift office could no longer support the demands of the business.
In December 2016 we at Quickline Couriers moved into our first ‘proper’ office. A 500sqft serviced facility in Liverpool, suitable for up to 10 staff members, a move the Directors thought would serve them for a good few years.
The office move allowed the company space to grow the workforce and by May 2017 the company was supported by a 5 strong team.
In December 2017 the business was on the move again, this time to a purpose-built 1000sqft facility providing multiple office and meeting space with plenty of room for growth.
This office remains the current location of the Company’s head office and acts as the main hub in supporting the entire operational structure of the business!
In January 2019, Quickline Couriers successfully launched their second operating location in Manchester.
This new site allowed the Company to better service the demand for their services in and around the Manchester area and by January 2020 the team in Manchester was growing rapidly as was their reputation for providing that unparalleled customer service that the Company was built on.
2020 proved to be one of the most challenging years in modern history. As the world wrestled with the Covid-19 pandemic, our team at Quickline worked harder than ever to ensure we kept the country moving and played our part as key workers in the Nation’s supply chain.
Despite the turmoil, our company continued with impressive growth, launching our third operating location in Preston and further increasing our reach throughout the North West region.
The 20/21 financial year finished as a record-breaking high as we celebrated our 5-year anniversary. It was ‘out with the old’ and ‘in with the new’ as a fresh, new-look Quickline brand was announced along with the launch of our Company’s 4th operating location in Birmingham. This is the Company’s first venture out of the North West and promises to take Quickline to a national level within the industry.
The business currently employs a workforce of 21 office-based employees complemented by a nationwide field-based driving team of employees, subcontractors, and transport partners who assist in providing the full UK and European coverage.
These people continue to be the core of the Quickline operation and consistently ensure that we go above and beyond for every one of our customers, providing them with the ultimate experience in customer service.
The drive and ambition of the Directors is clear with some big plans for the future to ensure that the business continues its impressive growth throughout the UK, allowing more businesses and individuals to benefit from the very best in same day delivery.
