Scottish courier firm, Eagle Couriers, hit the industry press after pledging its support for a government initiative designed to encourage cycling.

Post & Parcel featured news of the initiative which is part of the Scottish Government’s Cyclescheme, a green transport initiative that offers tax-free bicycles to help people save, on average, half the cost of purchasing a bike themselves.

Bathgate based Eagle Couriers has purchased bicycles for five of its staff members, and could extend the offering across the business if the initial phase goes well.


Getting staff on pedal power will also help cut the courier company’s indirect carbon emissions.

Jerry Stewart, director at Eagle Couriers, said the Cyclescheme programme first caught the company’s eye bout six months ago.


Murray Hogarth is the controller and administrator of the Cyclescheme at Eagle Couriers, saying he had suggested the initiative to his bosses since he is a keen cyclist.

“The scheme is great, as it not only helps people become more fit and active when going to and from work, but also means people can have a bike at nearly half the cost.” 

The full coverage can be read on the Post & Parcel website and was secured on behalf of Eagle Couriers thanks to an ongoing PR campaign with Holyrood PR.
