The previous haulage contractor must be laughing their bollocks off

Wonder if the buyer who decided to switch has still got a job.

DHL have cocked the contract up but they'll still have it when it all calms down.

Yep. Just in time or as we used to call it 'Just too late'. DHL will keep the contract because it is too expensive to start negotiations with another company and set up the systems needed, thus, however crap you are you very rarely get then push. Works differently for employees though as there are a dozen people who will do your job and for less money.... supply and demand, don'cha know.

I dont know about that, when I was QHSE Manager for Alexander Denis warehousing, distribution and logistics, we switched from Tufnells to Aspray, all done in the space of three months.

DHL has been storing all KFC chicken at an unregistered cold-storage facility in Rugby.

The storage depot at the centre of the KFC chicken crisis had not been registered or inspected before problems emerged this week, and could have been closed down for breaching safety rules, a local council has revealed.

KFC said some poultry at the depot would have to be destroyed.

Read the full article here in The Guardian
They probably knew what it was going to be but if it is supposed to be registered and expected before use they would quite reasonably assume that it wasn't opened yet.

Seems a very major error for a company the size of DHL to make

My local Wetherspoons posted on FB last night, promoting their chicken night, I replied stating that it’s dhl who delivers it to them

I hear that in Africa they've started a "Just Giving" page for those affected in the UK by the kfc food shortage.

One of our local kfc, s is very bad. Don't know why it hasn't been shut down yet. The attitudes on the staff serve as a warning.

My wife used to work for an organisation that was taken over by DHL. Within months most of the staff had left as DHL were enforcing contract changes. They were demanding that suppliers gave them their customer lists so they could contact the customers and negotiate different rates . If the suppliers didn't co-operate they would be de listed. Why we are dealing with people like them I don't know. Oh yes I do, it is so greedy companies can make a few pennies more. The previous contractor's drivers are probably working for DHL on a rubbish contract.

They seem to be operating a system similar to Uber, zero hour contracts and if you have to be contracted souly to them or you get "fired"... If you are "self employed" this is really quite illegal, and the tax man could do you for this type of arangement, as they try to with the likes of courier and taxi companies loke DHL and Uber. How the hell these companies get away with it is beyond me...

This is true and as the government has just changed the rules on IR35, it is illegal to be self employed and be restricted to work for one company, however the type of self employed varies could be sole trader, or having your own PLC, which I do, (Get to call myself a director ) and while I usually work for the same company, I am not restricted contractually or otherwise to work for others.

The Beeb have lost, or rather their "employees" lost against HRMC recently with the new IR35 laws
