December 15

Please be advised that due to the continuing adverse weather across the UK we have been advised today that services to and from Scotland and the Newcastle area have had to be temporarily suspended in order that the backlog of deliveries can be cleared.

Shipments for Scotland and Newcastle area will be collected as normal and held at Mission Express Heathrow awaiting confirmation to despatch. We hope this situation to be resolved as quickly as possible.

It is not taken lightly to suspend a service into a region but this is the right operational decision based on the local conditions.

We will keep you updated as we receive information and services resume.

We would like to thank you for your understanding and patience during this difficult time.

Yours Faithfully

Steve Grossman

Managing Director.
