Courier and haulage firms are reaping the positive effects of the current Royal Mail strike, as companies turn to them for deliveries.
Many businesses are trying to avoid any letters they send being caught in a backlog of mail.
Cycle couriers are perhaps benefiting the most from this current strike. BikeRadar has noted that most bike courier companies have had to increase shifts and bring in extra staff in order to cope with the current demand.
It will be interesting to see whether courier firms will be able to hold on to this business once the strike is over.
If you own or run a courier firm, it’s important to have the appropriate courier insurance to protect your business.
