Started in 1991 with three people, Courier Systems has grown year on year. Now London’s largest independent courier company, it is characterised by a mission of offering excellent customer service together with the highest standards of Corporate Responsibility.

Indeed, we take Corporate Sustainability & Responsibility into the very heart of our activities, and our performance means we are ahead of the game.

As a courier company, our main impact is on climate change through our fleet’s emissions. Hence, in 2007 we became carbon neutral through a mix of internal policies to keep our emissions to a minimum and the offset of the inevitable ones.

However, our leadership in CSR predates that. Already in 2001 we started to purchase less pollutant LPG-fuelled vans. Whilst our ISO 14001 status ensures the soundness of our Environment Management Systems, our overall environmental performance was acknowledged by a Platinum award in the Mayor of London’s Green 500 scheme in 2009. In September 2009 we started offering our diesel fuelled van drivers the possibility of using biodiesel.

Our ISO 9001 certificate proves the quality of our company. In the key issue of road safety, we are proud members of the Freight Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS), which means we are fully compliant with relevant legislation.

Furthermore, we were the first company in the same day despatch industry to publish a CSR Report, openly and transparently documenting all our main Key Performance Indicators.
