Company Bio

Don’t let the name fool you! Airport Courier Service (ACS) does so much more than shipments coming in and out of the airport!

ACS is client focused, result-driven, tech-forward, one-stop shop for all your logistics needs in New England and beyond. We are open 24/7/365, with a live dispatcher always ready to assist.

Our HQ office and warehouses are located in Woburn, MA, just under 10 miles north of Boston, MA. We also have drivers stationed in Providence, RI and Manchester, NH.

SERVICES

Medical & Pharmaceutical Shipments:

ACS has deep experience in handling a wide range of time- and temperature-sensitive medical and pharmaceutical shipments, including human specimens, organs, cadavers, and pharmaceuticals. ACS drivers are also trained to handle direct-to-patient deliveries with the utmost sensitivity and professionalism. We carry dry ice and data loggers in our warehouse, so we are well-equipped to handle all your cold chain shipments quickly and easily. We also operate temperature-controlled vehicles (TCVs) and have cold and ambient storage in our facility.

Time-Sensitive Courier Services

We do it all – expedited, on-demand, scheduled, and routed. We have employee and contractor drivers to service the broad needs of our clients and their unique projects. We have built custom forms and tailored instructions in our driver app to deliver high-quality results.

Final-Mile Logistics

With our warehouse as a final-mile terminal and our fleet of 26-foot box trucks and cargo vans, we serve a number of retail clients in final mile deliveries to stores throughout New England, particularly challenging locations in downtown Boston, like Newbury Street. We offer business-to-business white glove service. We also do reverse logistics, bringing product back to our warehouse for secure packing and palletizing and LTL pickup.

Asset Recoveries

ACS has a team of experienced drivers and helpers for small and large asset recoveries. Our team carefully and securely packs assets and brings them back to our warehouse for LTL pickup.

Critical Spare Parts Warehousing & Delivery

With 24/7/365 coverage and a full-time warehouse staff, we provide exceptional service on critical parts warehousing. We provide both the storage and transportation services required, and we take great pride in our exceptional metrics for on-time service.

Air Cargo Shipments
As our name implies, we are experts on airport pickups and deliveries. We currently service the following airports: BOS, PVD, and MHT.

TECHNOLOGY

ACS runs on the E-Courier. We love customizing our tech to fit the needs of every client and every project. When you onboard with us, we will run through your requirements and work with our tech team to build the best client experience.  We also do integrations, custom client portals, and custom email notifications.
