Royal Mail going from strength to strength

Royal Mail mail deliveries have been in decline for some time with less letters being sent. This could be down to the increased use of email etc.
On the other hand Royal Mail parcel deliveries have been on the up giving them an increase for the same period as last year for the six months up to September from £12m to £144m.

How this affects the sameday courier business is anyones guess. Whilst there will always be a need for Same Day Couriers in London many companies that are feeling the pinch may opt for a next day delivery if their customer can wait until the following morning.

Business on the whole seems to be surviving at the moment. This is not the case for some of our neighbours in Europe. In Spain things are looking very grim at the moment with many businesses really struggling. Our goverment says they are doing everything they can to get business moving. We can only hope that the situation there doesn’t end up the same here.
