Welcome to Couriers TV’s latest digital newsletter

It’s February and a lot of you are probably happy to finally get January over and done with, right? It’s not a lot of people’s favourite month, but we all have to go through it.

But now it’s the month of love. And we want to know if last month showed you any affection. Did you get enough work? What were the rates like? Anything you can tell us helps us paint a better picture of the industry.

Is The UK About To Enter A Recession?

We’ve just seen headlines that it’s highly likely we’re in a recession. And that means that a lot of companies will probably tighten the purse strings a little more, watch their expenditure etc.

This can affect how often people use courier services, and it’s also worth keeping an eye on anyone paying invoices late as the flow of business stutters.

It’s not nice, but we all have our businesses to protect when times get tough, so make sure you take care of your cashflow in order to make it out the other side.

How Was It For You? A Quick Industry Survey About January.

We want to get an insight into how things are shaping up for drivers after the first month of 2024.

If you have a few minutes, please answer a few questions on how January has been for your business – head to our Surveys and Statistics page

Compare The UK’s Leading Courier Companies

Recently we launched our ‘courier comparison‘ page. It’s only got a few of the top tier companies listed so far, but more will follow. We’re aiming to clarify “who does what” in the industry for both drivers and customers, and it’s starting to get attention.

Is there anyone you think we should add?

Save Money on Diesel with a Fuel Card

Anyone that works in transport will admit that one thing is true – The less your pay for fuel, the better your chances of turning a decent profit.

Why would you pass up a chance to spend LESS on fuel?

We’re working with UK Fuels to make sure our visitors can access some of the UK’s best priced fuel cards.

We’ve made sure that anyone that applies through our enquiry forms will not be charged yearly admin fees on their accounts, meaning it’s one more weight off your shoulders, and one less unwanted charge in your accounts.
