Would Brexit have a negative effect on UK business.

With industry in the UK not quite sure of the effect that leaving Europe would have on their businesses, we wonder just how many really want to leave.

Some financial gurus, such as the prolific investor Neil Woodford, don’t think it will be that bad if we leave. Others say it could be disastrous. The thing is no one really knows.

As a nation, history shows we always seem to do OK on our own. We hear ‘experts’ say that being in Europe makes us stronger but the fact is all the new rules and bureaucracy that come from being in Europe can sometimes hinder small to medium businesses. Another thing to remember is that the UK have been the quickest out of recession, which shows the strength of our economy and the way it’s now run.

Whichever way it turns out, we at Fastpeed Couriers believe businesses will still require urgent deliveries to be made, especially a requirement for Sameday Couriers between Manchester and London

 

 

Parcel delivery jobs in London for the Christmas rush

We see that independent parcel carrier Yodel are offering courier jobs available in the Dartford area for the run up to Christmas. There are just short of 150 jobs going including  directly employed drivers, owner drivers and self-employed couriers

They are offering staff the chance to work from home in their own car, delivering and picking up parcels from the local area. London same day couriers are always in demand at this time of year so this is nothing new but is welcome news for those seeking extra income.

London helicopter courier service

The first ever helicopter courier service in London is now in service, delivering urgent documents from across the Atlantic to the city’s vast number of banks in as little as 24 hours.

The DHL Express service flies daily from Heathrow into the Isle of Dogs. This essentially bypasses the traffic and is said to cut the journey time into Canary Wharf and then the City of London by as much as one hour, where London same day couriers then complete the job by road.

This service must be highly popular and can only help businesses in the capital where time is of the essence.

The Christmas Rush

It’s that time of year when our London Sameday Couriers start to get extremely busy. The traditional Christmas rush seems to be late in starting this year but we know it’s only a matter of time.

Sameday deliveries from London to Manchester seem to be as busy as usual with many companies actually showing an increase in business, but in other parts of the country it seems much quieter.
The government says we are our of recession, so who are we to argue. The proof surely will be in whether stores will be busier than this time last year.

Tories or Labour

Who cares I hear you say.
A lot of people aren’t that bothered about who forms a government so long as things get better. But will they.
Well at the moment, while things remain uncertain, it is not doing the country any good. We need to get back to the days where business is booming and that may be a long way off.
The courier business is, like most, suffering. A lot of small couriers are just about hanging on and they need to have some sort of idea just how long it is going to take to get back to ‘business as usual’
Well, how long is a piece of string.
All we know is the longer the political parties take to get this country back on its feet, the more businesses are going to go to the wall.
So to all you party leaders, “GET YOUR FINGERS OUT”.
