Originally a major part of the Scottish county of Midlothian, Edinburgh is located on the southern shore of the Firth of Forth. Recognised as the capital of Scotland since the 15th century, Edinburgh is the seventh most populous city in the whole of the UK. On top of that, this city has the strongest economy of any city outside of London. So, as we all welcome a new commercial phase as the Covid-19 crisis begins to wane, businesses can get back to trading normally. Hence, there will no doubt be a great demand for couriers in Edinburgh.
New demands for couriers in Edinburgh
May 17th has been set as the date when the major lockdown safety restrictions are relaxed to allow social functioning, living and trading can return. Already, the doors to High Street shops and businesses have been opened across the UK and businesses are enjoying the new demands which come with the new normal. But the epidemic has changed the way customers are buying.
Buying from the web has been around of course for many years, but has never really been the main vehicle for trading. When the epidemic was at its peak and physical shops were unavailable, people were forced into getting supplies online. Customers have found a great convenience when buying – and sometimes cheaper products – and businesses have sometimes found a reduction in overheads. The knock-on effect has been online buying is more in demand and promoted more by all organisations. In order to allow that demand to be met there is a greater need for couriers in Edinburgh.

The finance sector first became central to Edinburgh as early as the 17th century when the Bank of Scotland was first established.

Also, the city is also home to the TSB bank, Sainsbury’s bank and Tesco bank.
