Thistle Couriers Scoops Prestigious Industry Award for the Third Time

An Aberdeen-based courier company has scooped a prestigious industry honour for the third year running.

Dyce headquartered Thistle Couriers, has been named Best Regional (Scotland) Depot 2010-2011 in the annual APC Overnight network awards scheme.

The company, which specialises in both national and international courier services and serves the North-east oil and gas community, received the accolade for the third year running at an award ceremony at the Chesford Grange Hotel, in Warwickshire, recently.

The award recognises ‘above and beyond’ service performance throughout the past year, with winners being voted for by other branches within the APC Overnight network, which has more than 120 depots across the UK, including 12 in Scotland.

Ewan Ferguson, Thistle Couriers Managing Director, was delighted to be able to collect the award in person.

He said: “To win such an important industry award is a fantastic achievement for our team in Aberdeen. Receiving this recognition from other professionals within the APC network makes the achievement an even better one for us and to claim the title three years in a row is all the more special.

“Over the years we have focused on putting in place a team of dedicated individuals who are all fully committed to ensuring our clients receive the best possible service at all times. Our continued high level of service is testament to the team and I was delighted to once again be able to accept the award on behalf of every single one of them.”

Ivor Skinner, APC Overnight Managing Director, added: “These are important awards for APC Overnight members and recognise their above and beyond commitment to service excellence. They reflect how hard depots work together to support each other within a customer focused, tightly knit and cooperative network of likeminded local delivery specialists. Thistle Couriers was once again a deserved winner of the regional award for Scotland and I congratulate Ewan and his team.”

Thistle Couriers was established in 1998, currently employs 24 staff, and specialises in providing both national and international parcel and pallet courier services.
