Credit card parcel plan

Parcel carrier Amtrak is launching a credit/debit card payment option to make it easier for small companies and individuals to use its services.

“We believe this will appeal not only to small businesses but also to people selling on the web or sending goods occasionally,” said managing director Alan Jones. Customers don’t necessarily want to set up an account but want a quick and easy way to organise sending a parcel.”

The popularity of web auction sites and the growth in the number of people working at home has led to a significant increase in the demand for collection and delivery of one or two parcels from residential addresses.
