Our History

Merit Couriers were formed in 1988 by Pete and Sharon Davidson operating from a small facility on the Medway City Estate and very quickly becoming an established player on the Medway Courier scene offering high quality same day courier services to destinations throughout the UK.

Fast forward three decades and our business has steadily grown in size and range of services we provide. Our ethos of providing first-class care and attention to every single job no matter how big or small remains our priority. However, as part of the Merit Group, we now have the experience, infrastructure and resources to cater for all the courier requirements our clients present.


Merit Couriers were delighted to win Bronze at the NCDA’s National Independent Courier Company of the Year 2019.

The NDCA (National Despatch and Courier Association) was formed over 30 years ago to drive the courier industry through members “delivering excellence together”. The association has created a national network of courier companies who have proven levels of professional service. It enables a true national coverage with reduced response times whilst ensuring every single consignment is being handled by a vetted member of the NCDA.

Merit Couriers became a full member of the NCDA in the early 1990’s and has become an integral part of the network. Merit Couriers have won several awards for services to other members of the NCA and to the industry in general. This gives customers and potential customers peace of mind, safe in the knowledge that their goods are in the care of a quality courier.
