It’s hard to tell just how well London couriers will cope with the influx of an extra five million visitors.
To be honest, London traffic has never been good at the best of times, so an estimated 30% increase on the roads London could well grind the capital to a halt.
Londons transport infrastructure has been identified as one of the biggest risks to the games’ smooth running and anyone that delivers regularly in London already knows this.
Also, couriers delivering within the capital during this period will be impacted by transport changes, which will increase delivery times in the capital. This will almost certainly affect the following postcodes E, EC, WC, SE, N, NW, SW and W.
Some couriers may even refuse to attempt anything within the E postcodes.
Lets hope it all runs smoothly as the government has intended, and everyone including good old London sameday couriers, do well from the increased business.
