Yodel announces plans for new network structure
Yodel has announced today details of the plans to complete the move to a single operating platform that will enable the company to operate profitably. This strategy is designed to meet customer-driven demand for faster, more flexible delivery options and higher standards of convenience.
As part of these plans Yodel is proposing to close 45 service centres across the country. This will obviously result in a level of redundancies across the business.
We are in consultation with individuals affected by this change.
Jonathan Smith, Chief Executive, said: "This is not a decision we have taken lightly. We have to make these changes to meet the needs of our customers and create a sustainable and profitable business model. We have been running two operational networks since early 2010 with limited flexibility. Having concluded the planning process we are now able to communicate how we will move to one operation."
Yodel is working closely with colleagues across the business to ensure a smooth transition and to make sure that all of our colleagues are fully informed and presented with all the relevant options available to them.
