PDQ Joins EFS Global

Posted On: February 1, 2019

We are pleased to announce that EFS Global has aquired PDQ Specialist Courier Services.

PDQ’s head office is in Alderley Edge but the firm also has centres in Wirral, Buckinghamshire and Ireland. PDQ was established in 1998 and provides specialist courier services across the pharmaceutical, hazardous and medical professions with a range of highly specialist temperature controlled solutions.

Mark Jones – MD of EFS Global – commented: “PDQ is a great addition to the EFS Group and we are delighted that Brian Brennan – long-term MD of PDQ – will be carrying on steering the firm into the future. It really is a case of business as usual for PDQ’s staff and clients but with the added benefits that come with being part of one of the UK’s leading freight and haulage companies.”

The deal follows a number of other acquisitions made by EFS in recent years including Euro SDB, 747 Express Freight, Logictrans UK Limited, RTS Refrigeration, CS Brunt, Horizon Distribution, Euro-Tran Despatch and JRS Traction.
