CitySprint has purchased Birmingham-based Network Logistics UK, continuing its recent acquisition spree.

Founded in 2004, Network Logistics UK was built up by current directors Craig Guthrie, David Costin and Paul Ryder.

CitySprint has now acquired all of Network Logistics UK SameDay, Overnight and International Operations.

Network Executive Chauffeurs, which was associated with Network Logistics UK will remain an independent company.

Patrick Gallagher, chief executive of CitySprint, said: “This deal marks yet another important step forward in our growth strategy and will help us expand our reach and offering for our customers.

"This latest acquisition, combined with our strong organic growth, helps consolidate our position as the UK’s leading private same day distribution company.”

Craig Guthrie, director of Network Logistics UK, said: “We are delighted to join our services with CitySprint who share our dedication and focus on customer service alongside providing the complete courier transport solution.

We’ll be working together to ensure that the integration process is seamless."

Network Logistics UK’s employees will transfer to CitySprint as part of the deal.
