Shaks Couriers is a same day courier company, based in Leicester in the East Midlands. With a large fleet of light commercial vehicles ranging from cars ranging to lutons, as well as a number of motorcycles, it provides a range of collection and delivery services on a local, national and international basis.

Therefore, the driver who collects the consignment will be the same one who delivers it to the final destination.
This, in combination with robust company based safety, quality and loading standards, ensures that the drivers minimise the risk of breakages and losses during transit. These high standards have resulted in the company building up an impressive portfolio of clients in a wide range of industry sectors.
