Loss Making Menzies Parcels Set To Close

Almost 300 staff at Menzies Parcels face redundancy as parent company Menzies Distribution prepares to close down the loss-making business.

Menzies Parcels employs around 270 staff and provides courier services to the Scottish Highlands, Islands, Grampians and Argyll. It operates 15 depots throughout Scotland and handles around 8,000 parcel deliveries and 800 parcel collections a day.

Staff at the business were informed by management in early January that the business is shutting down. In a letter to staff the company stated: “The business has been incurring significant losses over the last two years and having exhausted all other options, has come to the disappointing conclusion that it is no longer sustainable in its current form. Therefore, working with our employees and customers, we regret that the last day of business for Parcels Scotland will be 29 February 2024.”
