Stuart Stern began Speedy Messenger Service in Ottawa in July 1978. With a hands-on approach to the business, he has taken a few clients, staff and drivers to become one of the largest independently owned messenger service in central Canada.
From those few clients, five staff, and a small driving force, Stuart and his partners have grown and expanded, in more than 30 years of business, to staff and drivers numbering in excess of 500.
Speedy Messenger is one part of the Starship Group of Companies operating messenger services across Canada. Our head office is located in Ottawa.
At Speedy, we understand that being successful only counts if those around you are successful, too. Giving back to our community is an integral part of what we do. For the past eight years, for example, Speedy has been a major contributor to the Snowsuit Fund, an organization that has been helping underprivileged children in Ottawa and Gatineau for more than 25 years. And, for more than a decade, we have played a role in supporting Toy Mountain, a project that brings Christmas toys to up to 11,000 children in our region every year. Why do we do it? Simple. Because it’s the right thing to do.
Winner of the Consumers’ Choice AwardTM for Business Excellence yearly since 1999, Speedy Messenger offers you the experience and peace of mind you demand.
What does this mean to you? It means ours is a company that is devoted to its customers, its people and its community. And that translates into the kind of service that only Speedy Messenger Service can provide:
We also provide related services such as warehousing, cross-docking, bar-code labelling and a service we call Pick, Pack and Ship. Call us for more information on these services.
