City Link Failure Brings Surge In New Business For Another Coventry Courier

Defenda Couriers sees a surge in demand for its UK and International Parcel Delivery Service in the wake of the collapse of City Link, another Coventry based parcel company.


April Donnelly, ‘New Business Director’ at Defenda Couriers said: “We of course have very mixed feelings about the whole situation with regards to City Link. Whilst it is always nice to pick up extra parcel traffic, nobody wants it to be on the back of another company’s failure. Behind all the headlines there are thousands of lives around the country that will be adversely impacted by this failure. The decision to wind the company up will devastate many families but to do so on Christmas Day seems to have added insult to injury judging by comments we are hearing from ex-employees, owner drivers and previous City Link customers that we are speaking to.

As a company, Defenda Couriers had an unusual relationship with City Link – providing both drivers and vehicles to cover some of their routes and at the same time in direct competition with them for parcel customers here in Coventry and indeed throughout the rest of the UK”, She continued.

“Like many suppliers to them, we will be unlikely to receive payment for the services we provided. Unlike many however, as a larger company it will have a negligible impact on us. Sadly though, I understand it has already pushed some smaller businesses and owner drivers over the edge themselves”.

Self Storage May Not Always Quite Deliver


Coventry self storage companies may well be the answer for customers seeking simply storage, but if you are looking for somebody to help with your storage and also the distribution of your products to customers both in the UK or to almost any other international destination then Defenda Transport & Logistics will almost certainly be a better choice.


Whilst Self Storage may offer the convenience of 24 hour access to your items – for those companies or individuals that are happy to work to our normal opening times and are really looking more for a partner that can help not only with storage but also with a host of other requirements such as ‘Picking & Packing’ and also the movement of your goods and products to customers throughout the UK then we will have an option to suit.


Whether you need things delivered on pallets, as parcels or loose loads in one of our many vehicles Defenda Couriers offer professional, reliable and extremely cost effective transport for numerous Coventry Companies from our Distribution Warehouse in the South West of the City.

Our popular student luggage service which allows students to move items up to 30kg in weight between their homes and their digs for as little as £6.95 + Vat (£8.34 inc Vat) is an extremely efficient way of handling the start and end of term problem that can often involve the need to recruit parents. This is further enhanced with a student storage service, again at our Coventry warehouse.

Coventry Light Haulage & Courier Company Adds Curtain Side Luton Van To Fleet

Defenda Transport & Logistics Ltd have added a curtain sided Mercedes Luton Van to their fleet which already contains many Luton Vans with Tail Lifts.


The acquisition comes as part of the company’s determined efforts to provide an even more comprehensive range of distribution and delivery options to its rapidly increasing customer base.


The curtain sided version of the Mercedes Sprinter Luton allows the company to move goods that are long, or those that are loaded onto double pallets by permitting side loading of the goods. This can provide huge savings for customers by avoiding the need to upgrade their delivery to one of our 7.5 tonne or larger HGVs. Not only does it help save the customer money but can also offer many environmental advantages with transport being provided on a more fuel efficient vehicle.



If you are shippers of longer items which require double palleting or simply loading via the side of a vehicle – you may well find that our curtain sided Luton Van is the perfect solution to your transport needs. We may also be in a position to simplify any other delivery requirements you have from next day parcel delivery, same day dedicated vehicle or our groupage services. We can cover your multiple pallet deliveries on one of our heavy goods vehicles.

Defenda Couriers was originally approached by Shutl – the London based technology company responsible for bringing delivery times from high street retailers down to just 90 minutes from purchase – to provide their express delivery service throughout Coventry, Warwicskhire and many Birmingham postcode areas for leading high street names such as Argos, Maplin, Oasis, Schuh, Halfords, The Entertainer, Defendapack & Karen Millen amongst others.

Defenda Couriers Our existing FASTTRACK delivery service which was originally put into place for the crucial delivery needs of the National Health Service, leading industrial manufacturers and numerous other industry sectors reliant upon having a rapid & reliable delivery option at their disposal, fitted naturally into the service that Shutl were determined to provide.
