Margo said: “The pandemic has changed consumer buying patterns and accelerated online shopping. The predictions show that this is going to be a record breaking Christmas peak within the delivery industry, and especially in terms of home deliveries.”
During the first lockdown in March, Hertfordshire Overnight saw a surge in deliveries, with more and more people shopping online.
Companies they offer deliveries for include Tom Tom Audio in St Albans, The Beer Shop in Hitchin and four school uniform suppliers – which saw a significant increase in orders towards the end of the summer.
