Additional Information

Delivery company Yodel has announced plans to cut 140 jobs in Wales. Jobs will be affected in Cardiff, Anglesey and Carmarthenshire. These plants will be closed within the first half of 2012.

The company was formed in 2010 through an acquisition process of DHL Domestic and the cuts are therefore blamed on duplication of services in some areas. The company stated that it aims to inform staff of their options.
