Welcome To Coventry
With a population of over 300,000, Coventry is the 11th largest city in the UK and the second-largest city in the West Midlands. It even originated a famous phrase that we use in our everyday language to this day. That is: “Peeping Tom”. It comes from the famous event when Lady Godiva rode naked through Coventry City centre on a horse to protest against the rise in taxes. All citizens were asked to avert their gaze but one man decided a little peek would not hurt anyone. Allegedly his name was Tom and the rest is history.
Sitting astride the River Sherbourne, Coventry first acquired city status in the Middle Ages and has clearly been no stranger to trade and commercial visitors for a long time. Coventry lies just 19 miles east-southeast of Birmingham, the second-largest city in the UK, and is 94 miles northwest of the capital itself.
Road Transport For Coventry Couriers
If you are one of the many Coventry couriers or HGV drivers servicing a local business supply chain, then you will no doubt have found the transport within and around the city very useful. Indeed, all the big motorways are accessible such as the M1, M6, M40, M45 and M69. There is also the A45 which originally passed through the centre of the city. Now, in line with most major UK cities, bypasses allow traffic to avoid the hubbub of the industrial town centre.
Inter-city and Avanti are two rail services which help to connect this bustling city with other cities in the West Midlands, the North-west of England, Scotland, northern England and south-eastern England.
Other forms of transport include a highly effective bus service provided by Arriva Midlands, Coventry airport which is situated 5 miles outside of the city centre and the network of canals. Of course, in previous commercial era’s, the canals were essential to satisfy supply and demand. Now the barges are used more for leisure activities.
Industry Looking For Coventry Couriers
Since 1896, Coventry has been the centre for motor and cycle manufacturing. Companies such as Coventry Motette, The Great Horseless Carriage company, Swift Motor Company, Humber, Hillman and Triumph motorcycle all have their origins here. Now in the 21st century, the car manufacturing trade has greatly reduced in Coventry city, though Jaguar still remain at Whitley.
Coventry couriers will now find themselves working for a variety of industries including businesses which specialise in electronic equipment, machine tools, agricultural machinery, man-made fibres, aerospace components and telecommunications equipment.
Business Services And Coventry Couriers
Overall, the city has moved away from manufacturing and now focuses on business services, finance, design and development, logistics and leisure. According to research by the Office for National Statistics – based on millions of pounds sterling – the service industries have expanded threefold while manufacturing industries have remained more or less static.
