'Use couriers to keep in touch with family', says Parcel2Go, as Irish emigration rises

July 11, 2012 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
People living in Ireland whose friends or family members have moved abroad in order to find employment should turn to specialist courier companies if they're looking for a cheap and reliable way to stay in touch, according to delivery specialist Parcel2Go.

It has been estimated that as many as 76,000 people moved away from Ireland in 2011, some as a result of redundancies and a lack of employment opportunities. A number have moved to the UK and other European countries, while some have opted to travel to the other side of the world, to Australia and New Zealand.

Parcel2Go wants to help make it easy for friends and family to stay in close contact, even if there are thousands of miles in between them. The company offers a range of services to destinations within Ireland and Northern Ireland from the likes of Nightline, GLS Ireland and Fastway Couriers. In addition, world services are available from the biggest international parcel courier firms such as Nightline, Parcelforce, CityLink and FedEx.

Parcel2Go marketing director Richard Mercer said: "Our aim is to make it as simple as possible for people to get parcels over to loved ones, whether they are in another part of Ireland, Britain or perhaps many miles away in South Africa.

"Travelling abroad to find work has become far more common in recent years, and we want people to know how easy it is to keep in touch by sending parcels over to loved ones in other countries. Out of sight certainly doesn't mean out of mind, and there's no better way to let someone know that is the case than by using an online postal service to send a special delivery."

The range of parcel delivery options available online through Parcel2Go includes the Nightline Delivers parcel service which offers delivery within one to four days throughout Ireland. The GLS Europe service offers delivery to addresses across the continent, while the FedEx World Express service offers delivery to destinations worldwide within one to three days.
