Our van drivers do it hard; stuck in traffic, loading and unloading, listening to Radio 2....
but seriously, a van driver has an important role to play in the sameday courier industry.
Small vans these days are quite pleasant to drive so covering long distances in them is not the ordeal it used to be and they can carry a pretty good load.
The biggest problem for vans is and will always be traffic hold ups. Whilst we monitor traffic all the time at our control room there are still times when vans just get caught up in traffic.
Annoyingly, the times that we all see on google maps for a given trip rarely have any bearing on real life but that's the yway things are..which is why we also run Motorbikes for urgent deliveries >>>>
