Company History

Progressive Messenger has been the leading courier company in the Lower Mainland for over 25 years.  Quickly, Progressive became the courier company of choice for all of the local major universities. To this day, it is the preferred courier for the University of British Columbia and Simon Fraser University.  As specialists in the education market, Progressive has also done courier work for many colleges and school boards throughout the Lower Mainland.  From there Progressive expanded its capabilities to handle documents and small packages for a variety of industry segments.  In the past five years Progressive has increased its fleet components and now delivers everything from envelopes to skid lots.

Progressive has always been a socially conscious company and has supported numerous charities throughout the years.  Our social conscience has turned to the future of the planet and has made huge strides in being a sustainable company.  In fact, we have done such a good job with our initiatives; we have an exclusive agreement to provide courier service to Environment Canada. Please see the sustainability section of our website to learn more about the way we provide service with minimal impact on the environment. 


Our philosophy is simple and has remained steady throughout our history.  We strive to be able to provide the very best service possible at the most competitive rates available.  We continue to invest in our people and technology so that we can be flexible and meet all of our clients’ unique service and billing requirements.  Progressive Messenger is locally owned and operated with senior management working out of our headquarters in Richmond BC.  Our clients are in very capable hands as our management team has close to a century of combined experience in transportation and logistics.

Our fleet consists of over 100 late model, low emission; cars, pickup trucks, mini vans, cargo vans and cube trucks.  We have the ability to transport anything from a small envelope up to skid lots.  Each of our vehicles are identifiable with Progressive Messenger signs on both sides. All vehicles are properly maintained, licensed and insured to the highest standards.
