SERIES 1: Most people come across couriers bustling about in their trucks and on their bikes, cutting traffic, parking illegally and delivering packages across the CBD. On paper, their profession seems relatively simple. The customer calls in a job, the call centre passes on details to dispatch, they in turn book a courier to arrange the pick-up and delivery in a timely manner easy right?
So how do the team at Swift and Shift Couriers always manage to stuff it up!
Depot manager Keith (Ian Turpie) has worked at Swift and Shift for over 20 years. Despite his wealth of experience, Keith reports to the younger "text book" regional manager Amanda (Amanda Keller). Amanda is determined to prove that she can whip Keith's underachieving team into shape and gives him 6 months to turn the business around.
Keith knows that transforming is going to be harder then it seems, especially when you have misfits that include call centre newbie Leanne (Kirsty-Lee Allen) "popular" sales rep Melissa (Melissa Tkautz), couriers "Mario" (Paul Fenech) his cousin "Luigi" (Sam Greco), the twins, and Agro (Angry Anderson). Not to mention the lazy loading docks boys headed up by Kiwi Kev (Kev Taumata).
Will Keith manage to turn the Hashfield depot into a well-oiled machine? Or will Amanda finally get what she wants and shut the place down?
SERIES 2: With burning desire to bring Keith and 'Swift and Shift Couriers' to a bloody end, Amanda sets up a rival courier depot that books jobs through a call centre in India and imports their cheaper drivers who--on tuk tuks--run the jobs in Australia!
It is the usual disasters, stuff-ups, crazy driving and familiar faces--only this time there is also the animosity between courier depots which have constant run-ins and, well, the odd scuffle. Mario is still stalking Melissa in the hope of winning her back and last, but not least--someone at Swift and Shift is getting married, and everyone is attending...
