Eagle Couriers wins new quality standard

Eagle Couriers wins new quality standard

Scotland’s leading independent courier firm has cemented its levels of excellence after having a highly sought-after quality standard upgraded.

Eagle Couriers has become the first courier firm in Scotland to be given the prestigious ISO 9001:2008 level following a surveillance visit by industry inspectors.

The company is Scotland’s biggest independent courier, employing more than 100 people with bases in Edinburgh, Bathgate and Glasgow, and works with a range of high-profile companies and organisations across the country. 13 years ago it earned its first prestigious ISO 9001 certificate in recognition of its impressive working practices and standards.

The ISO award is a mark of excellence which reassures clients – including the BBC, communications giant BT and the Scottish Government – that Eagle Couriers operates at the highest levels.

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.

Staff at Scotland’s leading independent courier firm have been celebrating after they received an unexpected piece of TV advertising.

Eagle Couriers received a piece of prime time exposure on BBC1 after one of their motorbike drivers was featured during a repeat of the hit comedy Chewin’ the Fat.

The firm provided specialist courier clothing and a branded motorbike for a scene in the famous show when the series was originally filmed in 2001. But staff were left surprised when the scene was repeated as part of a “best of” programme – showcasing their courier driver to a new audience of millions.
