Nobody as yet knows the extent of the threat to our postal services.
The first scheduled strikes begin next week.
As a carrier we want to see the dispute settled then we can all move on. We don’t want to see the Royal Mail Damaged further. We will certainly see an increase in small mailpacks and parcels but the extra revenue is no comfort to us. The Royal Mail is set up to deliver this type of freight, Its not as cost effective for us to do it.
All APC Depots are prepared for the strike and will endeavour to maintain service to the usual high standards but undoubtably there will be instances where we simply are overwhelmed with the freight. Please bear with us. It is extremely difficult to deal with short term spikes in business. I am sure overall service will be Good.
This country needs a strong Royal Mail too many sectors are now being bought by continental outfits. Our industry is being bought up the the French and German post offices – lets hope the Royal Mail does not go the same way – Come on Guys – sort it and get back to work.�
We have arranged for a discount to be made available to our existing clients for mailpacks – Just call the Depot to have this discount implimented. Our depot is open for 12 hours a day should you have a need to drop in urgent document despatches. Lets hope the dispute is resolved quickly and to everyones satisfaction
