Velocity helps National Sameday win significant aerospace contract

Delivery and courier business National Sameday in Luton has hired four new employees and safeguarded the jobs of two others thanks to a grant awarded by Velocity Business Support.

National Sameday has been awarded a significant contract to provide bespoke courier services for an aerospace company, requiring additional drivers and support staff to work specifically on the contract, which it won as a result of a grant worth over £7,000 from Velocity.

Velocity, which is free and available to businesses across the South East Midlands, provides grants of up to £10,000 and worked closely with National Sameday to help the firm develop a bespoke IT system in order to tender for the aerospace contract.

Partha Dey is Managing Director of National Sameday, he said: “The grant from Velocity has had a major and immediate impact on the business. This month, we’ve seen a significant breakthrough in the performance of the company and recorded our highest-ever turnover in the 22 years since we started, and we’ve had to recruit four new employees to help us deliver the contract we have just won.

“Not only that, but we’ve also been able to safeguard the jobs of two existing employees, who will now work solely on this new contract, which will operate seven days a week.

“The Velocity grant enabled us to develop and build a brand-new back office system to improve business processes and productivity, which was required in order to tender for the aerospace contract. This new system allowed us to rub shoulders with the ‘big boys’ in delivery and courier services and we beat off major competition to win this lucrative and significant contract, which we wouldn’t have done without the grant from Velocity.

“We are now in a position to tender for more contracts on this scale which, if successful, will require the recruitment of between eight to ten more drivers.”

National Sameday contacted Velocity via the Bedfordshire Chamber of Commerce, which is delivering Velocity across the county. Partha met with both Justin Richardson from the Chamber and Richard Cooper, Velocity’s Bedfordshire Business Adviser, who guided Partha through the grant application process.

Richard Cooper said: “Very quickly we were able to identify an immediate need for new technology that would help National Sameday tender for this contract. The likes of the larger delivery companies already have this in-house but National Sameday needed financial support to invest in the development of a new system.

“This is exactly what the Velocity grants are here to do; help businesses like National Sameday win new business or retain existing business, leading to an increase in profit and the creation and safeguarding of jobs.”

To find out more about Velocity’s grants and to book a 1-1 appointment with a Business Adviser, call 0300 01234 35, email enquiries@velocitybusinesssupport.com or visit www.VelocityBusinessSupport.com
