Same day courier/delivery service
Now in their 3rd year of trading, Elite Express Logistics Ltd has been growing year on year and being recognized as one of the best quality and reliable same day delivery service in the UK- delivering anything from letters to lampposts to delicate medical supplies.
Due to an increase in demand there was a need to increase not only the number of drivers but also the admin staff so Nick contacted the Growth Hub to find out what support was available. Following a 20 minute call with Jacqui she identified the SEBB Grant would fit their needs.
SEBB Grant awarded to fund:
- Marketing consultancy – rebuild the website and add e- commerce section
- Equipment e.g. computers, hard drives etc for the admin staff
Jacqui continues to stay in touch with Nick and he has now signed up for 12 hours business support with Theo the Scale Up adviser and possibly looking at the new Transport and Logistics Grant (TALE)
