After trading for over forty years, City Links announcement to suspend all parcel collections on Christmas Eve, was a shock to both the 2727 employees and the thousands of business customers relying on them to fulfil delivery of their orders.
According to the administrators, City Link had been making substantial losses for a number of years and even after a 40 million pound investment from “Better Capital” (who purchased the company for £1 in 2013) they haven’t managed to turn it around. City Links potential demise will have severe repercussions for businesses who haven’t yet adopted a multi-carrier solution like the one ParcelBroker offers. ParcelBroker can have affected businesses up and running again within minutes using a carrier from their wide selection, keeping the damaging effects of the unexpected news from City Link to a minimum.
By adopting a multi-carrier solution, you can protect your business from all possible negative effects of a third party supplier and use multiple couriers alongside each other through one easy to use and uniform platform. Switching courier is seamless and instant with ParcelBroker. For more information contact ParcelBroker today.
