About APC Overnight
APC Overnight was formed in 1994 by a group of experienced delivery companies committed to providing excellent service in the UK overnight delivery market. We’ve managed our expansion carefully in order to stay true to our founding principles: - Offering exceptional levels of service - Utilising the newest and best technology - Continually investing –
Our business is only as good as our people and we strive to promote staff engagement across all company levels. We ensure staff facilities are maintained to a high standard and offer more than adequate resources to all employees at every level of the business. We actively focus on talent management and are keen on providing career development and progression from within. We encourage two way communication and have regular staff forums where staff representatives have the opportunity to regularly meet with members of the Executive Team. We ensure our employees are involved with company ventures including voting systems and feedback for fundraising and charity schemes.
We are committed to providing opportunities and support to the local and wider community. All recruitment opportunities are made available to the local community by various methods of advertising. Our official charity of the year, selected by our employees, is the Teenage Cancer Trust. Donations provided by fundraising and sponsorship are presented to local units of this charity. Local schools were invited annually to participate in a competition when designing our recently built state of the art National Sortation Centre. We participate with local schools in providing work experience opportunities, with a planned programme which ensures exposure to the world of work.
We recognise that operating in the transport sector we have a significant part to play in reducing our negative impact on the environment. We carefully plan and model our trunking schedules to achieve route optimisation, best use of our available resources and reduce our Co2 emissons. We use modern aero dynamic fuel efficient vehicles that are regularly maintained and serviced. We are supporting the Department of Transport by participating in a 10 year pilot scheme trialling extended length trailers. The test vehicles are independently monitored over the course of the programme to log carbon emissions and safety records. We are committed to a waste recycling scheme, this includes shrink wrap, paper, cardboard, scrap metal and ink cartridges. All employees are trained and compliant in actively ensuring recyclable products are discarded appropriately. Unusable wooden pallets are provided to a third party company for chipping and recycling. Our premises are fitted with energy saving light bulbs and sensor lighting to minimise energy usage, in addition we use hand dryers as an environmentally friendly alternative to paper towels.
