With the weather changing and the nights drawing closer, you may think it's not really the best time to visit a coastal town, but our courier in Bournemouth is always happy to visit the beach. With retail parks, high street shops, blue chip businesses and industrial estates packed into Bournemouth our courier is kept busy with 24/7 Express deliveries. Bournemouth is easy to access with main roads providing connections with roads to Southampton and Exeter. This makes it a perfect location for 24/7 collections and deliveries for our courier in Bournemouth. Our drivers make regular collections in and around Bournemouth on a daily basis and have been known to experience some of the attractions that appeal to tourists. The BIC opened in 1984 and hosts entertainment, conferences, exhibitions and events. Another great attraction worth a visit is the Bournemouth Eye, a helium-filled balloon attached to a steel cable in the town's lower gardens. The balloon carries up to 28 passengers up to a height of 630 ft which provides a panoramic view of the surrounding Bournemouth. Many of our Bournemouth drivers are local to the area and benefit from knowledge of times when the town is most congested or popular with tourists. We strive to meet the fastest collection times we can to ensure your goods are delivered on time so are drivers are constantly expanding their local knowledge to select the best route to and from you.
Our express couriers deliver across the UK 24/7. Many towns are visited within a day with many our of drivers taking an interest in the towns they visit. We felt it would be fun to share the facts our drivers discover whilst visiting towns around the UK. We've also got our team at Speedy Logistics Ltd HQ to do their own research and add even more super facts. This week our facts come from a Courier in London.
Facts from a Same Day Courier in LondonTo become an efficient courier in London requires patience, local knowledge and attention to detail. A Black cab driver is required to learn approx 320 routes around London covering 25,000 streets and 20,000 landmarks, which gives you an idea on how much knowledge is required by a Courier in London. Many of our drivers are supported by advanced Sat Nav technology, but due to the fast nature of same day couriers many of our dedicated drivers rely on local knowledge to aid them on the fastest route around London. London offers some fantastic parks to rest and relax during a lunch break, in fact London is one of the greenest cities of its size in the world. Almost 40 per cent of greater London is covered in green space. One of our busiest years for our courier in London was during 2012 when London held the Olympics. 2012 was the third time London has hosted the Olympics. Something our drivers are familiar with in London is the congestion zone. The congestion charge zone was introduced in central London in 2003 as an attempt to improve traffic congestion. Many of our collections and deliveries within London are to retail outlets, blue chip businesses and small business owners. Small businesses represent approximately 97 per cent of all businesses in the capital. We enjoy supporting local independent businesses and offer account holder benefits for those wishing to use our services on a regular basis.

Whether you are sending your parcel through an overnight next day service or via a same day delivery, you will want to make sure you package your goods well. Often goods are transported via van and no matter how safe and securely your goods are restrained in a vehicle, the right packaging can make a difference to how well your goods are protected.
How to package your goodsLocate a secure box - We suggest using a box that is not damaged or weakened by too many uses. Here at Speedy Logistics Ltd we encourage recycling but understand that a cardboard box only has so many lives. Make sure that the box you wish to package your goods is not water damaged as this could weaken the structure of the box. If you can't close the box you've selected and don't have any bigger boxes, consider using a second box to help you increase the size of your current box. Protect your items - If you are transporting small fragile items, or several items in a box, you may wish to use bubble wrap or packing peanuts to protect your items. Movement whilst in transit, can occur and could damage your items if they are not protected efficiently. If you don't have access to bubble wrap or alternative packaging accessories, consider using old newspapers or cardboard to bulk up the inside of the box to prevent your item from moving around. Seal with care - Make sure that all openings of your box are secured with packaging tape. Deliveries can take place during terrible weather, so to prevent your goods from getting wet, you will want to make sure all possible points of entry are suitably secure. We advise the use of packaging tape over clear sticky tape as it stronger and more protective when goods are moved from A to B. Secure sharp edges - If your items have sharp protruding edges, do your best to safely cover them. Sharp edges can damage other goods and even the courier delivering your items. If your has been placed in too small a box, this could cause parts of your goods to protrude from the box. Attach Delivery details - If your goods are being delivered via our same day delivery service, it will remain with one driver and one vehicle. But at times there may be multiple items in a van. So to ensure your goods arrive safely at their destination it's always best to write the delivery address onto the item if possible. If you make this a priority when you package your goods then you will be assisting the courier drivers in delivering your goods promptly. If you are unsure about packaging your goods for express delivery, give us a call on 0800 133 7811.
