Quotes

However, Julie Townsend, deputy chief executive for Brake, the road safety charity, said: "We are disappointed and concerned by this announcement. Put simply, when vehicles travel faster, it takes them longer to stop, increasing risk. It is very well evidenced that increases in speed equal increases in crashes and casualties. At the same time, the road safety justification for this move is dubious: we are not aware of evidence it will help tackle risky overtaking, which should be addressed through other means."
Ditlev Blicher, UTi president, APAC, said: "We are creating a worldwide trade services network of experts and systems that offers global consistency while enabling configuration on a local level to meet client needs."
"Our existing facilities and recent investment in Northamptonshire, which we are proud to have called our home since the 1970s, mean we are excellently placed to operate our business for the benefit of our customers and employees."
Nicky McGroarty, head of supply chain, said: " We are proud to be the first mobile retailer to offer a 10pm order deadline for next day deliveries direct to customers."
