How is your mail delivered?

Did you know that in New Zealand, China and India mail is delivered mostly by bicycle and that in the UK it has been phased out because of health and safety issues?

In my neck of the woods, there are no bikes and delivery by foot is being phased out.

  1. I don’t know about the rest of the UK , but TNT have started delivering mail by bicycle in the North West. This is alongside the Royal Mail who deliver on foot.

  2. In the US they deliver mail in old, inefficient, ugly trucks… Many of which need a tuneup and a new muffler. “Do as we say, not as we…” you get the idea.

    • Same here. Big, costly and difficult to drive (i.e. dangerous). Canada Post is losing money here. My money. The service is supported by the tax payers. Now the the local governments have spent (again, my money) to upgrade the cycling infrastructure, you might think delivery by bike might be a realistic alternative.
