You & Yours: Couriers have cleared the backlog

No primary category set

You & Yours on Couriers this ChristmasToday BBC 4 You & Yours discussed the performance of couriers this Christmas. They spoke to 10 of the biggest UK courier operations to find out how they were coping with the Christmas rush and if you and your customers are likely to receive your parcels before Christmas.

It’s all good news, couriers appear to have cleared the backlogs and are coping well with none reporting significant problems. Certainly they’re all expecting to get parcels delivered before Christmas, although several admit that there have been delays.

If you’re in the UK, you can listen to the program on catch up. The clip starts 14 mins 15 seconds into the program and runs for 5 minutes.

  1. Have the parcels been delivered or have they simply cleared the backlog at the central depot, leaving a large number of parcels with their pseudo-independent local subcontractors.
