Courier boss says UK Christmas shopping has started early
Christmas shopping has started early in the UK according to the boss of courier business Yodel, which is racing to hire extra drivers for the festive peak. He also said he is confident that Yodel, the fifth-largest UK courier by parcel volumes, can find the 4,300 seasonal workers it needs for the pre-Christmas rush. Profitability is expected to continue in the current financial year, despite higher cost pressures, he said. The business expects parcel volumes to top 200m in the current financial year, up from 190m last year. Hancox said the business was hiring more staff directly because it had become expensive to contract work out.
