Eco driving for Eagle Couriers

Eco driving for Eagle Couriers

Scotland’s leading independent courier firm has strengthened its green credentials by sending drivers on a special fuel-efficient driving course.

Eagle Couriers has arranged for three members of its team to go on the Government-run Safe and Fuel Efficient Driving (SAFED) course, in order to help further improve the firm’s environmentally-friendly work ethic.

The unique course involves a rigorous training schedule designed to make van and HGV drivers safer on the road and to improve the fuel efficiency of their driving. It is offered to companies who extensively use the country’s road network for their business.

Eagle Couriers has invested around £1000 to send its three members of staff on the course – a move it hopes will not only help promote environmentally-friendly driving and keep its staff safe on the road, but will also lead to long-term savings for the business.

Eagle Couriers heat treatment

Eagle Couriers heat treatment

Scotland’s leading independent courier firm has once again proved its expert credentials after saving a customer’s blushes during a recent overseas delivery.

Staff at Eagle Couriers were contacted to deliver a special package from Edinburgh to California, but realised that the wooden box due to be shipped out had not been properly treated and tested to allow it to pass through American customs.

Under U.S. import and export laws, all packages and cargo crates have to be specially heat treated to ISPM15 standard. If they have not been suitably treated, they are sent back to the senders – meaning that sensitive deliveries do not reach their intended recipients in time.

Burnley won after an exciting 1-0 win against Sheffield United at Wembley, bringing them back to the top league after an absence of 33 years.

And while most footballers would celebrate the promotion, which brings with it an estimated £60million windfall, teetotaller Coyle was sticking with Scotland’s other national drink to mark the return to top-flight football after 33 years.
