Recession Takes Toll on Blandford Courier Service

Recession Takes Toll on Blandford Courier Service

A Blandford-based courier service has ceased trading and entered liquidation.

Terry’s Courier Services Limited entered liquidation on November 26 after closing its doors earlier in the month.

A total of 11 staff have been made redundant as a result of the closure.

Julie Palmer and Simon Campbell, of Begbies Traynor in Salisbury, were appointed joint liquidators at a meeting of the company’s creditors.

The company had traded successfully for 10 years, but had recently fallen victim to the cumulative effect of the long recession.

Julie Palmer said: “Aside from the difficult trading conditions common to a lot of businesses at present, Terry’s Courier Services appears to have been squeezed by ever-increasing fuel costs and thinner margins imposed by its larger customers.”
