On the 6th July 2013, a team of 30 walkers from the transport and logistics
industry scaled Snowdon. The Big Walk to a Small Pub was held as a tribute to
Peter Huntley, the former Managing Director of Go North East and founder of
specialist public transport consultants TAS Partnership, who died last year
whilst training for an expedition to the North Pole.
Mr Huntley was a keen walker, cyclist and climber and had raised thousands of
pounds in his lifetime for charities. He had hoped to raise £10,000 for
Transaid with a trek from Russia to the Arctic Circle.
ITransaid would like to thank all the walkers for their amazing fundraising
efforts which currently stands at £18,000, with more money to come.

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.

London will trial out-of-hours freight deliveries from early 2014. The
Mayors 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.

UPS driver Peggy Larson, of Port Orchard, Seattle, has just accomplished 30
years of accident-free driving. This is after covering over 800,000 miles in
United Parcel Service, or UPS as it's known, traces its roots to two teenagers
who began operating with one bicycle out of a basement office in
Seattles Pioneer Square in 1907. The company, now based outside Atlanta,
has become the worlds largest package-delivery company, moving 4.1
billion packages and documents worldwide last year.
Peggy said Im not an office person. I like it out here, said
Larson as she guides her boxy brown 18-foot truck up a hill in Manchester, east
of Port Orchard. I love the chance to be outside, and to get to know my
customers, she said. Its almost like I have my own small
business, delivering packages.
On the road, she drives well behind the vehicle in front of her. And in close
quarters, shell try to make eye contact with other drivers so she knows
they see her. Shes especially cautious in neighborhoods with small
children, because a truck carrying a load of packages can be a kid
magnet. They want to see whats inside, she said.
They know we work for Santa Claus.

Due to the increased popularity of online shopping, DPDs Dutch business
is expanding its delivery service to offer parcel delivery on Saturdays
The company says it is expanding from five to six days a week due to the demand
from internet businesses. The Saturday delivery is available for parcels going
to both households and business addresses.
DPD says it is shifting strategy to make the parcel recipient the main focus of
its logistics system
The company, part of La Postes GeoPost Group, said recent studies from
the likes of Delivery Match and Thuiswinkel.org have shown that 70% of online
shoppers feel it is important that retailers offer the delivery of parcels on
Saturdays or during evenings. Almost a third of Internet shoppers say such an
option is very important for online stores

Many families have still not received Christmas gifts that were sent as far
back as three weeks ago. Royal Mail have promised to clear the backlog by
bringing in extra temporary staff but have been severley hampered by the big
Complaints have come from many areas including Berkshire, Norfolk,
Warwickshire, Cheshire and Scotland. They are apparently holding tens of
millions of parcels at their sorting offices while they try to clear them.
Royal Mail confirmed problems in Scotland, but denied a more widespread
Christmas backlog. It said: The nations Christmas mailbag has been
delivered, the overwhelming majority of it by Christmas Eve. There was a
huge effort by our postmen and women despite the worst December weather in
We recruited 23,000 additional temporary staff. We have had some reports
of individual items of Christmas mail arriving after Christmas but we are
confident these are isolated examples. In that small number of places
where there has been some disruption, we have already taken measures to
deal with the issue.

Huge profits have been reported at Royal Mail with an increase in six months up
from £12m to £144m for the same period as last year.
Their UK parcel revenue has gone up by 13%, with the parcel sector representing
47% of total group revenue.
All of the group's main businesses were profitable said Royal Mail chief
executive Moya Greene.
"Royal Mail has experienced the negative impact of e-substitution, which
is driving the structural decline in the traditional letters market.
"Conversely, we are seeing the positive impact that online retailing is
having on our parcel volumes," she said..
