Delivery Companies Are Ready To Take Over When The Royal Mail Is Finally Laid To Rest

Following last week’s demonstrations opposing the latest call for Royal Mail privatisation, fears have been reignited over the nation’s delivery service, but parcel couriers and delivery companies are making the most of the UK’s mail crisis.

May 11, 2009 - PRLog -- Never before has the private delivery sector been so important, particularly to business customers, and with funding problems and closing post offices delivery companies are filling the disparity between supply and demand and offering competitive prices and more reliable parcel delivery services.  Howard Hughes, Managing Director of Parcel 2 Ship, one of the UK’s premier international courier and parcel delivery providers, said, “I think business customers would be quite stuck if it weren’t for companies like Parcel 2 Ship, as it is proving that the Royal Mail just isn’t offering adequate levels of service.

“Where the Royal Mail is fairly limited in the services it is able to offer we are able to liaise with the top parcel delivery companies such as Parcelforce and arrange the best possible price and option for our customers.  This flexibility just isn’t possible with a public service like the Royal Mail and as demand for such services grows, prices will continue to fall.”
Back in 2007 the then Trade Minister Alastair Darling MP announced plans to close 2,500 of the country’s Post Offices by the end of this year, and prior to that announcement 4,000 had already been axed from the nation’s dwindling postal network.  As Lord Mandelson proposed a full Royal Mail privatisation earlier this year it seems that the service’s fate is already sealed.  “While it is a shame to see such an institution fall to the private sector it is of vital importance that people can access cost-effective and reliable delivery services, and it would seem that private delivery companies are better equipped to provide this,” added Mr. Hughes.
