New PR Success as Parking Ticket Fight Features in Courier Press

on behalf of Eagle Couriers
Leading postal news website Hell Mail has given another high profile piece of media coverage to Eagle Couriers – after publishing a story about the firm’s latest fight against parking tickets in Glasgow.
The website, which publishes news from the UK’s postal industry, highlighted how Eagle Couriers was fighting Glasgow City Council over parking tickets that had been issued on the firms’ courier motorbikes.
The row flared up after one of the firm’s couriers was given a parking ticket in the city centre earlier this month. The ticket is the latest in a series of penalty charges given to the company over their bikes – which Glasgow City Council believe do not qualify as goods vehciles and are therefore not permitted to park in loading bays.
Eagle Couriers has strongly denied this judgement and has pledged to fight the ticket, which it says is unfair as it specifically ensures all its bikes have goods vehicles insurance.
