City Link administrators to meet with employees regarding potential redundancies

postandparcel.info - Dec 30th 2014

Administators Ernst & Young have said they will be informing employees of the potential for “substantial” redundancies among the 2,727-strong workforce will be announced by tomorrow 31st December.

City Link went into administration on Christmas Eve, when it ceased to accept any further parcels from customers at either it's depots or it's transport hub in Coventry. City Link, which had delivered around 76m parcels a year, re-opened it's depots to the public yesterday so that parcels can be retrieved.

With more than 2,000 City Link employees are now facing redundancy, the company’s self-employed couriers also face the prospect of losing money owed. The UK government has urged both employees and contractors to contact administrators in the first instance.

A handful of companies have come forward to state the possibility that they could hire ex-City Link employees or contractors, and support City Link customers looking for alternative delivery solutions.

Chinese courier services that will deliver an estimated 12 billion parcels this year

BBC News - Dec 23rd 2014

China's eager online shoppers have created a booming courier industry.

China has a booming courier industry that has emerged to service China's obsession with online shopping. According to the government's postal bureau, Chinese courier services will deliver an estimated 12 billion parcels this year, putting China on course to surpass the US as the world's biggest delivery sector.

The sheer size of China's online retail sector is staggering. Last month, on 11 November, the country marked Singles' Day - a relatively new holiday that was invented a few years ago to give unmarried people an excuse to spoil themselves a little. On that day this year, Chinese shoppers outdid themselves, buying bn (£5.8bn) worth of products on the country's biggest shopping platform, Taobao.

Chinese web retailers need little excuse to set up new shopping events. Right after Singles' Day, huge discounts were offered on Black Friday, originally an American shopping event.

Emergency alcohol dash from Carlisle to Scottish wedding

newsandstar.co.uk - Oct 12th 2013

It was a very special delivery for two supermarket delivery drivers as they embarked on an emergency booze run from Carlisle – to a wedding in Scotland. Asda booze run photo Asda staff at Kingstown smartened up themselves and the van for the dash

Asda head office was contacted by the distraught mother-of-the-bride on Thursday after the alcohol supplier for the wedding – which was taking place in Dumfries – had let them down. Bosses at the supermarket giant reassured her and pledged to deliver £1,000 of alcohol to the Dumfries venue by the afternoon. And so it was Asda in Carlisle, which was called upon to save the day.

In the spirit (obvious pun) of the event, store managers Aaron Rigg and Neil Kilgour ditched their usual green uniforms in favour of more formal attire, and even the van itself was adorned with festive green ribbons tied to its wing mirrors and stretched down to the front.

A spokeswoman admitted they would have liked to decorate the vehilce further, but the van still had a 75-mile round trip to Dumfries along a the motorway. “This is a first for us: to go to such lengths, in this style, for a customer to receive their shopping delivery,” she said. “Without this, their wedding would become a dry wedding very quickly.”

Out of hours deliveries to be trialed in London in early 2014

fleetdirectory.co.uk - Oct 10th 2013

London will trial out-of-hours freight deliveries from early 2014. The Mayor’s office and Transport for London are working with the London boroughs in a bid to reduce the capitals congestion problem. They aim to explore the idea that many more deliveries could be made out od busy hours.

Out-of-hours deliveries were trialled during London 2012 Olympic Games with great success and transport companies have been asking the Government to introduce it on a more permanent basis.

Representatives made up from TfL, key boroughs, retailers, London Councils, FTA and RHA have formed a new consortium - aimed at looking at how out-of-hours deliveries can be carried out more often in the longer term without causing unnecessary disruption to residents.

Jack Semple, Director of Policy at the Road Haulage Association (RHA) said “It is right to recognise the continuing progress made by the haulage industry and its suppliers in making operations safer and more efficient and that many factors are out-with the control of HGV and van operators.”
