Two into one ?

That was an interesting, if speculative, piece in the TGWU newspaper Record. Under the headline, "Concern over plans for future of Roadline" the paper hinted at fears of massive redundancies. Since the new md only arrived at his Swiss Cottage desk last Monday, nearly three weeks after the story appeared, he cannot be blamed for the fears. Indeed, it might be thought that if anyone has sown the redundancy seeds it was those who published the story.
It may come to nothing and that would be a good thing but for the 1,000,000th time we ask: "How much longer can NFC afford to keep cheek by jowl, two almost identical operations like Roadline and NCL?" If there is traffic for the combined fleets then they should be combined, under one company title, one management, one building and then they will have one profit or one loss.
I don't suppose that outburst will do much good to NFC, but it has helped my blood pressure.
