Successful Scottish PR campaign delivers great results to Eagle Couriers.

Scotland’s leading independent courier firm Eagle Couriers is celebrating another high profile piece of coverage in the Edinburgh Evening News.

The evening newspaper reported on a story about how the trams works in the Capital are adding thousands of hours onto the firm’s delivery times across Edinburgh.

Eagle Couriers estimated that a total of 4600 extra hours are being added onto its delivery times every month, as couriers navigate the road diversions and closures across the Scottish Capital. Director Jerry Stewart says that the disruption is affecting the firm’s business, as they do not charge extra money to their clients for the delays.

The full coverage appeared in the Edinburgh Evening News and came as the result of a proactive media push by Holyrood PR PR in Scotland. 

Eagle Couriers has been given another prestigious piece of coverage in leading postal news website Hell Mail for a story about how the Edinburgh tram works are disrupting business in the Capital.

Hell Mail, which gathers news from the UK’s postal and courier industries, ran a story about how roadworks in Edinburgh caused by the tram project are adding thousands of hours onto Eagle Couriers’ delivery times.

The full story appeared in Hell Mail and was the result of a media campaign by Scottish PR experts the Holyrood PR.

Staff at Eagle Couriers have been celebrating after being featured once again in a leading courier news publication.

Courier Direct, which is the leading magazine for the UK courier industry, ran a story about how the ongoing tramworks in Edinburgh are causing havoc for Eagle Couriers’ business.

You can read the full coverage, which was highlighted by Holyrood PR PR in Scotland, on the Courier Direct website.

Scotland’s leading courier company Eagle Couriers revealed to news website Road Transport that they have been racking up extra miles due to Edinburgh’s ongoing tram works.

Jerry Stewart, one of Eagle Couriers’ three directors, said to Road Transport: “We make around 400 deliveries in Edinburgh every day, so this work is having a huge effect on our business. If you multiply that across all the other deliveries into the city centre, the knock-on impact is potentially enormous.”

The full story appeared on and was part of a media strategy by Holyrood PR, PR in Scotland.

Scotland’s leading independent courier company has been celebrating after scooping a prestigious piece of coverage in one of the country’s most well known transport magazines.
