THERE is a multiple of overnight parcels carriers in the UK, all offering "the fastest, the cheapest and the best service". We decided to try them out. We did so incognito!
• Every move was meticulously logged. The parcels went from Sutton to Yorkshire. How did they arrive? How long did it take? What did it cost? David Wilcox was the organiser. He was 'the customer'. Read his experience next week. Some will read it and weep.
• While David was in Yorkshire, Brian Weatherley was in the USA. He went to look at how European manufacturers are merging into the American scene and he reports next week. • We are all getting older day-by-day. As we age we become less mobile, but transport people help us to age gracefully.

He'll tell you next week.
• You've heard about the new Ford di. Now you can read about how Lucas CAV developed the fuel injection pump to meet Ford's demanding specification. Tim Blakemore misses nothing when he goes in search of the facts. You could miss out if you don't read Engineer's Notebook next Friday.
