Freightways boss: Volume of sales plunge despite being an essential service

Courier vans are considered an essential service - so why aren't they doing more deliveries?

Freightways, for example, has seen their volume of sales drop by 65%, but they need to stay open because they are an essential service.

The argument is that why not fill the courier van up to capacity with all kinds of deliveries - if the van is making deliveries then it is still only one person out and about. 

Freightways boss Mark Troughear joined Mike Hosking to explain the situation.
