With the abundance of sameday couriers in London there should never be a problem getting the service you require.
Not so in some rural areas of the country, but it could improve if demand rises.
With Royal Mail making plans to sell off most of its business to a foreign rival, it could mean the end of daily deliveries in rural areas, Welsh MPs warned last night.
Could this mean more work for couriers. Maybe, but would customers in these areas be willing to pay a lot more to get their items delivered.
Time will tell but if a private company can offer a similar service to Royal Mail then it may not be such bad news for those people out in the sticks after all.
Whats definite is that the public will not be happy with of their regular daily deliveries being eroded because of a cost cutting exercise.
