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.

How will London couriers cope during the Olympics

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.
