CitySprint takes to the skies!

CitySprint takes to the skies!

It’s a month until Christmas, Black Friday is just days away, and CitySprint is trialling new delivery methods to ensure its couriers can deliver whatever the weather.
Forecasters may be predicting a snowy festive season, but CitySprint has it covered. The UK’s largest same-day distribution service is testing reindeer delivery to help its couriers continue to reach more than 88% of the UK population in 60 minutes.  
Patrick Gallagher, CitySprint CEO, commented: “Every year we see pressure increasing on the distribution network during the peak season, and each delivery is as crucial as ever. We need to make sure we’re prepared for every eventuality – which includes retailers being transparent about delivery capacity. And of course we hope to bring a smile to commuters’ faces with our team of reindeer and their sleigh!”

Surely it's not April 1st already? - Ed
