Today, Interlink Express is seen as one of Britain's leading critical services carriers both internationally and domestically. However the company started life in 1979 as a motorcycle courier. As the business developed and Interlink Express flourished, it expanded three years later to provide an overnight parcel service. The success of the company was acknowledged a decade later by Mayne Nickless who bought the company in 1991. Some nine years later, the company holding company changed again and in 2000 La Poste bought the company.
