French transport wine by ship using only wind power - Feb 13th 2016

This is an update on a story first published in 2008.
French vineyard owners are starting to export their wine by sailing boat - a method last used in the 1800s - to reduce their carbon footprint. Later this month, as many as 60,000 bottles will be shipped from Languedoc to Ireland by sail, saving 18,375lb of carbon. Further voyages to Bristol, Manchester and even Canada are being planned for soon afterwards.

The three masted ship, a barque named Belem, actually launched in 1896, will sail from Bordeaux to Dublin, which although it will take about four days, will be much more environmentally friendly.

What is great about his is that each bottle will be labelled: 'Carried by sailing ship, a better deal for the planet.' Although the whole process takes up to a week longer than sending by air, it is estimated it will apparently save as much as 4.9oz of carbon per bottle.

Yodel moved over 22 million parcels in run-up to Christmas

Courier News - Jan 11th 2016

Over 22 million parcels were delivered by UK-based carrier Yodel in the five weeks before Christmas, including the busy cyber weekend.

They produced statistics that show that their customer service levels reached an all time high 83% based on a survey of on-line shoppers reporting a very positive delivery experience.

Yodel’s chief operating officer Keith Basnett said their focus for 2015 was on service and delivering a fantastic customer experience and that their efforts were reflected in the positive feedback received from their consumers

Yodel agreed daily parcel volumes with retailers in advance and placed limits on its next day delivery capacity which encouraged its clients to spread the delivery of orders taken during flash sales.
It looks like Yodel have improved on their problematic service of 2014.



Work deliveries to be banned - Aug 12th 2015

The rise of personal deliveries to work addresses is on the increase, which is why employers such as banks, universities and even government departments, are cracking down on this and even banning them

The Times this week reported that several big banks, including HSBC, Citigroup and JP Morgan, have banned these types of delivery. They say these personal items now account for between 30% and 40% of all incoming post and they are increasing by as much as 20% each year.

A number of alternative options are now being offered. These include lockers in shops and petrol stations run by the likes of Amazon, InPost, and CollectPlus, which allows their customers to have items delivered to newsagents, shops and supermarkets in its network so commuters can pop in on their way home. Another company, Doddle, has opened collection points in or near train stations.

It looks like this perk, which allows people to receive items they need whilst still at work, may now be coming to end end for some.
