Covid-19 Pandemic Specialist Transport Solutions

Here at PDQ Specialist Couriers we are committed to providing a range of tailored courier solutions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic in the UK and beyond.

PDQ Specialist Courier Services has developed a specialist solution which enables us to carry controlled drugs and controlled substances throughout the UK and Europe. Our Burnley office is an IATA Accredited Agent and offers a range of import and export solutions.

Our specially modified vehicles are equipped with industry-standard security locks, vehicle identification and roof markings. All vehicles are real-time location and temperature monitored and are fitted with a unique key-out system, ensuring that the vehicle maintains the required temperature at all times.

Covid-19 UK Road Transportation

We are partnered with numerous NHS organisations throughout the UK to provide them with temperature-controlled solutions for transport related to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Our fleet of modern vehicles is temperature-controlled and can provide clients with temperature logging reports for the duration of each journey once delivery is completed.

We adhere to MHRA guidelines, with our team all being GDP certified. Our specialist GDP courier service can supply same-day and next-day transportation of samples, specimens, trials and associated products.

We also have the capacity for equipment transport. Whether it’s a temperature-controlled device direct from the manufacturer or items being moved between laboratories, our medical couriers will assist laboratory staff in moving the device to the required location. In addition to our temperature-controlled vehicles, we have a fleet of ambient 18 tonne rigid and 13.6m arctic vehicles that can move equipment across the UK.

I have used PDQ several times and they are so professional and careful with my precious cargo! Furthermore, their customer service is spot on! Every person I have dealt with at the company, whether virtually or in person, has been polite, friendly and attentive. I can't fault them!


Would just like to say a massive thank you for the service you have provided over the past couple of years (or however long it has been, I have lost track of time!). Everybody, from your office staff to your drivers, have been nothing short of outstanding, and have made my life a lot easier. You have saved our team countless hours and you should all be proud of the service you have provided to the nation, it may not feel like you’ve made a big impact as I’m sure you provide the same service to all of your customers, but you have saved the taxpayers a lot of money!
