We’re so pleased to have found Packfleet, the best courier company we’ve ever worked with. We use them to deliver fresh food in insulated packaging and we’ve had a 99%+ successful delivery rate. Both their management team and their drivers couldn’t be more helpful and accommodating.

Their technology for booking and tracking shipments works better than any of the well-established mainstream couriers we’ve worked with.
