The period between sunset and sunrise is one filled with mystery and intrigue. How often do you pause to consider what’s going on outside in the darkness, while you’re snug in your bed?
Night-time movers and shakers
Every night in the UK, while most people are sound asleep, thousands of parcels make their way across the country’s roads thanks to the APC Overnight network.
The APC Overnight network is made up of independent delivery specialists, like A to Z Couriers. They work together to provide the UK’s largest overnight collection and delivery service. Customers are at the heart of that service, with APC committing to the principle that no customer is too large or too small for logistical support.
APC sets itself apart from other carriers by taking pride in its independence and local connections. It is the only UK parcel carrier to provide genuine local relationships while delivering nationally.
Creatures of the night
Such night-time logistical achievements take a vast army of staff to perfect. The APC network boasts 112 locations, with hubs located strategically across the UK. It’s not just drivers who bring the network together, but packing and sorting staff, specialist goods handlers, receptionists, customer service operatives and many more.
As part of the APC Overnight network, staff collect the parcel from your door, scan it into the local APC depot, then transport it to the national hub. There, it is scanned, re-sorted and sent on to the depot closest to its destination. Finally, your parcel is delivered to the intended recipient, with proof of delivery uploaded in real time. All while most of us are snoring (or binge-watching Netflix, in the case of the 30% of us who make up the nation’s insomniacs).
