Any parcel delivery drivers or depot managers on here?
« on: January 14, 2020, 10:19:25 am »
I need to speak to a couple of people who are either parcel delivery drivers or depot managers for one of the main carriers.  Is anyone on here in that line...?

Hmm, most of our deliveries are by eastern  Europeans. I doubt they support Brexit or Chelsea. No idea if they enjoy cars.

Thanks for the leads! 

I've spoken to few now and am busy writing up the project.

Thanks, but not unless you've got a van!  And not in the Netherlands.
I did have input from Zedify and PedalMe though - good to get some cargo bike thinking in.
But I've finished now anyway, so only general interest - what bike are you using and what are you delivering?

Harry Vs Larry bullit, or a triobikes trio (which had 2 wheels for confusion).

We have some e assist trikes but they suck. We also have 3 e assist trios.

We also use a number of trailers when it's busy. General package delivery.

I did deliveries for a mail order company in Manchester once.  I had a VW Type 2. 

Pre-internet though.  It took me to some very interesting places.. :o
Sic transit and all that..
