A private client discovered on Friday that contractual documents requiring the signature of the Swedish Minister for Energy needed to get from Swindon to Stockholm on the same day, to be signed by the minister in time to reach DHL for an overnight service with Saturday delivery to the European Commission in Brussels. As such, the client essentially required our revered European same day courier services. SpeedLink was tasked with collection of the documents in Swindon at noon UK time by an on board courier who then flew via commercial flight to Arlanda Airport to rendezvous with the minister's PA at the arrivals area. The latter part of our delivery of same day courier services then saw the documents whisked into central Stockholm where they were signed by the minister. After this, they were then returned to the DHL depot at Arlanda Airport in time to be placed in their network for a Saturday delivery to Brussels.
