What sets PDQ Specialist Courier Services apart, as much as any area of our work, is the selection of unique temperature-controlled courier options we offer to our clients. We understand the vital role that a trustworthy temperature-controlled courier service will play in serving the medicalpharmaceuticalhazardous and scientific analysis industries. These are all sectors which we specialise in and excel in providing transit for, making us one of the most respected temperature-controlled courier companies in the world.

We’ve provided our services to a host of notable clients throughout the public and private sector, maintaining a track record as a leading specialist courier through ongoing contracts with a number of key NHS foundations and multi-national companies. This is indicative of the level of quality, security and reliability we provide with each of our temperature-controlled deliveries.

In our ongoing work as specialist temperature-controlled couriers, we are fully aware of the key importance of offering you clear traceability throughout the duration of each delivery. Any client who enlists our courier service has the invitation to monitor the minute-by-minute location and exact temperature levels of their consignments at each stage of its transit, through access to our unique client portal. We understand how sensitive many of the transports are and the key value they hold with our clients, so as the leading temperature-controlled couriers in the UK, we always go the extra mile in offering peace of mind through our reliability, transparency and rapid delivery.

As well as employing a comprehensive UKAS ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System in our work, we also ensure that all of our vehicle drivers have undergone expert training and hold up-to-date ADR and GDP certification. We make sure to closely monitor all of our procedures and see to it that our vehicles are regularly maintained, as well as adhering to all MHRA guidelines. We understand the time-sensitive nature of many temperature-controlled transports, so we keep a contingency capacity across our vehicle fleet, allowing us to offer short notice delivery services at any time. Another unique feature here at PDQ is the fact that our complete certification enables our team of drivers to carry a wide spectrum of hazardous pathology samples, pharmaceutical products, clinical trials, radioactive materials and nuclear medicine.

This will ensure the protection of your transit even in unforeseen situations, with emergency locking and a series of alarms just two of the safety features we use.
