Your Freight Is Safe With GT Couriers

Sealed vehicles mean secure freight. At GT Couriers, our vehicles can be fitted with tamper proof seals on all load area doors, and each seal has a unique number. We simply attach the tamper proof section across the gap between door and body work and the matching one is attached to the paperwork and recorded for your records – this way seals that have been tampered with or broken can easily be identified.

Urban Garden at JWC

Students at Derby College Group’s Joseph Wright post 16 Academic and Arts college in the Cathedral Quarter have created an urban garden for staff and students to enjoy.

The balcony space has been transformed with synthetic grass, patio planters and benches using recycled pallets donated by local company DW Hicks.
