24/7 rush orders

Do you have a shipment that needs to be delivered today? Urgent Courier handles shipments that have to be loaded and unloaded the same day, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Thanks to our extensive European courier network, we offer a solution for every transport problem. Mainfreight Urgent Courier takes care of your urgent shipment with great care and attention. Transport that is under time pressure requires effective, fast and correct handling. You can find this combination at Mainfreight Urgent Courier.

From our own "Urgent" warehouses we can deliver goods urgently 24/7. This allows us to deliver shipments in various sectors such as Aerospace, Automotive, or Maritime sector directly from our locations at various locations within Europe.  

European network

Since their establishment in 2001, Mainfreight Urgent has built up its own network of reliable & high-quality couriers. For example, Urgent Europe-wide has access to 3,500 sprinters, who can load & unload at any time of the day and can drive directly from their destination to every corner of Europe. It is therefore possible to charge within 2-3 hours after order confirmation (max. Sprinter).

European emergency journeys based on a single journey

By using a European-wide network, unlike a traditional Dutch courier, only the distance is calculated based on a single journey. This way you benefit even more from the strength of the Mainfreight Urgent network. Due to the nature of the urgent shipment, it will in most cases involve direct transport. If desired, you can also impose a comprehensive ban on us.

The Transport of Dangerous Goods Act forms the basis for the regulations for the transport of dangerous goods by road. Mainfreight Urgent Courier is an experienced certified transporter of (environmentally) hazardous goods. Mainfreight has a number of specially trained safety advisors who are ready to give advice. In addition, drivers are of course trained and certified to enable the transport of (environmentally) hazardous goods and our fleet is specially equipped for this.

Temperature controlled transport involves the transport of a frozen, cooled or heated load. You can go to Mainfreight Urgent Courier for your conditioned urgent shipment if this concerns normally packaged commercial goods. We also have various options in combination with ADR.

All our vehicles are equipped with temperature registration systems, with which a comprehensive report on the temperature trend during the journey can be drawn up. We take care of your conditioned shipments throughout Europe.


On board courier

In some industries, Mainfreight Urgent Courier relies on delivering critical time shipments such as spare parts, samples, prototypes and important documents to the right place and time, anywhere in the world.

After the order, the courier will personally pick up the shipment from you as quickly as possible. After this, the courier departs directly to the nearest airport where the "first flight out" is taken to the place of destination.

By using the on-board courier you can be sure that the shipment will never be forgotten. In this way you do not run the risk that your valuable shipment will remain somewhere or disappear without a trace. The couriers of Mainfreight Urgent Courier are in possession of various current visas, so that a fast delivery can take place.

Our services:

  • Door to door
  • Door to airport
  • Airport to door
  • Airport to Airport

After delivery, if desired with identity check, you will receive a delivery confirmation from us.
