This article reports that the Consignia, the new holding company for the Royal Mail, Parcelforce Worldwide and Post Office branches, has announced a total review of its countrywide road, rail and air transport links as part of plans to reshape the entire network to meet demands for faster, cost-effective services in the future. The business operates what is believed to be the largest road vehicle fleet in Great Britain. The review is expected to be complete by the end of 2001, and changes to transport networks are expected to take place progressively in the following year or two.
