Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

MORE than 100 jobs in the parcels delivery sector have been saved this week with the announcement that the Liverpool-based Taylor Hulse group has been re-formed.

The operation has been completed by Brook Hire managing director Peter Brook who has formed two new companies from the Taylor Hulse company.

Mr Brook told CM this week that Go Fast Parcels and Go Fast Shipping had been formed from the company because "there was a stigma attached to the name of the old company because of its trading record," he said.

The company had been inthe hands of a receiver but now Mr Brook has retrieved some of the customers lost by the old company for the new operation.

All the former Taylor Hulse depots at Daventry, Norwich and Bulith Wells have been retained but the Liverpool base has been closed and last week the old company was moving into the Brook base at Halebank, Widnes.

Taylor Hulse had 45 vehicles and another four have been ordered for specialist customers. Mr Brook added that the company would have the 800 vehicle Brook Hire fleet to call on if it needed more.

"We really wanted the company for its shipping side," said Mr Brook, "but the transport side is also quite large so we decided to try and get that to make a profit too," he said.
