The industry-leading services provided by PDQ Specialist Couriers include a range of temperature-controlled transport services with Same Day and Next Day delivery options throughout the UK, in addition to a network that spans Europe. Amongst our range of options are a variety of chilled transport services, with our fleet of highly trained drivers and elite temperature controlled vehicles equipped with location and temperature monitoring technologies.

As an established leader in the area of temperature-controlled courier services, PDQ are able to deal with a variety of transport temperatures, including a variety of options for chilled commodities. With our extensive work through the medical, pharmaceutical, hazardous material and veterinary sectors, we understand how vital it is to be able to find a chilled distribution option that you can rely on to transport your goods safely, securely and on time.

We have built an extensive track record for offering a respected and reliable service that answers to both time-sensitive and temperature-critical needs. We have put in place a range of systems and measures that offer each of our clients the trusted assurances they require when transporting their delicate and/or valuable items. We know that when it comes to transporting chilled medical, pharmaceutical and other items, exact temperature is key.

 

Our chilled courier service is unrivalled, with a wealth of experience and quality services placing us as the ‘go-to’ courier for a range of sensitive and highly valuable transports. We can cater to the need for goods to be controlled to specific temperatures, offering the added feature of being able to transport multiple different items at different specific temperatures within the same transit.

We have also built our chilled distribution services to include a range of detailed updates for each client. Using our “Track and Trace” You’ll be able to check minute-by-minute updates on the exact location and temperature of your valuable chilled transportation. This allows you to track your consignment at any point of its progress so that you can have full peace of mind that everything is completely in-line with your courier service.

Having been a trusted courier service to leading names such as the NHS, British Heart Foundation and Cancer Research UK, we have established a detailed understanding of the specific needs of medical organisations and facilities. We may have worked with some famous names, but we offer that same quality of chilled distribution to every single client who makes use of our service. We can transport highly valuable chilled goods, whether it be for medical or veterinarian operations, pharmaceutical test or any form of hazardous transit.

 

Whatever temperature range you need your items chilled to, we will maintain that specific temperature range for the duration of transit. We employ a range of safety features with our fleet of vehicles to ensure that even in the extremely rare event of a breakdown, our temperature-controlled facilities maintain operation for up to two hours. With our extensive breakdown coverage across Europe, that will be more than enough time to ensure that your items are safely and securely cared for at all times.

Many of our clients use this feature for regular deliveries, a responsibility we take seriously as the ‘go-to’ chilled distribution experts for many clients around the UK.
