At Pegasus Couriers, career advancement is not just a concept but a reality. Many of our managers and office staff were once drivers themselves, attesting to the opportunities for growth within our organisation. The company was founded in 1988 by Martin Smith, an Edinburgh native, and since led to Phil West, a Scottish military veteran from Glasgow, being promoted to Director. Phil had been a part of the business for eight years before taking over the helm in 2023. With his experience and dedication, Phil has successfully guided Pegasus Couriers to become a prominent player in the courier industry. Before joining the business, Phil served his country as a medic in the UK Armed Forces, gaining valuable experience around the world. He joined Pegasus Couriers as a driver and quickly climbed the ranks to become a manager, overseeing a team of delivery drivers. Under his leadership, the company expanded to five depots across the UK and continues to grow. Pegasus Couriers has experienced remarkable growth in recent years thanks to our commitment to providing top-notch delivery service. We now have six strategically located depots and a team of about 500 reliable courier drivers. Our client list includes major eCommerce companies like Amazon and Yodel, which is a testament to the exceptional service we offer.
