careful, it's the civil service type culture that causes much of the damage. They will deliberately send out empty trucks to distant depots without first phoning that depot to see if there is a load to be collected. They also make no attempt to find a load for that empty outward leg. It seems that the depot gets some sort of internal 'reward' for sending out the truck, and if they were to find that it was not required and thus the run was not made, then they would not score 'brownie points' for the internal reward. I believe the 'reward' is connected to service miles that a depot logs. It would simply never happen in the real commercial world, any transport clerk knowingly sending a truck out on a 450 mile return journey would be sacked. But in RMG world, that clerk has scored points for his team! If we get a so called hard brexit and EU trucks are denied entry, then there will be a sudden shortage of haulage capacity since EU trucks do a lot of internal cabotage in the UK. So for a while there should be a boom in haulage rates while the market adjusts.

A turnover of around £11bn despite letters decline. If they could just improve efficiency by 2%, and there must be plenty to go at here, this company is way undervalued. Despite its former state owned trade union culture, there is potential upside here.

150p in the near term looks likely.if things do not improve then 100p is on the cards.20/21 no profits.so no dividends presumably.amazon could be the nail in the coffin or you never know the saviour.

Personally i don't always trust support levels as they may appear on the charts, these are in an a shot term uptrend and if they break 170 then 160 as a support starts the scenario of an extremely bearish head and shoulders pattern in that case they go straight back into a long-term down trend. Schroders will of been shorting themselves its what they do to smooth it out and make money, professional traders are professional and as an amateur i always view myself as a half wit and expect to wrong and then i am not disheartened and learn a little bit after each mistake, and i expect some news around now that will be a bit bullish.

Thanks for that. I'm not a charting. Tried to copy my rather naive chart with the 50 and 200 day ma but can't seem to add a pic here.It was a 3 year timeline showing the 50 day crossing through the 200Yes, that's the webcast I watched too. It was interesting and encouraging.

BADG: The TA looked good for month, but have only got 50ema crossing the 100ema on the 6 August on the daily with the price sat on the 100ema now, what chart time frame you referring too. Looking at it as a chartist the last impulse leg on the daily, that completed the 5th leg and also was the first leg of an impulse move on a trend reversal on the weekly, so, the retracement on the daily is A,B&C, on the weekly it's still form leg two, the monthly is just forming leg 1, with the price action overall in a uptrend, but that's only my interpretation. Then there is the news side positive union attitude, i watched that facebook webcast, definitely change is being pushed by the unions, then the stake builders and there may be two now, and more positive notes coming from motley fool, wall st, stockopedia but still slightly bearish but all saying dirt cheap really, which is the easy part to figure out. it's direction that's seems to be holding it back and a new CEO could solve that uncertainty, and is where i think the next move will be made when an appointment is announced. They're after another senior role filling as well when Rico took on some general operations role as well as CEO.

The 50 day MA is about to cross the 200 day MA which is a golden cross.It was sitting bang on the 50 day but is just below it at 179.The 100 day MA is around 171. Don't really know how much of a support that is. We are overdue another rns for a further 1% increase in our Czech friend's holding.Talks between management and unions are in a much better place and an announcement on that front would not surprise me at any time.I listened to the unions talk to members a while back and it was very positive

I topped up on Wednesday, I am beginning to wonder how the search for a new CEO is going, or if it's on hold due to the pandemic. Don't suppose it really matters at the moment everything is technically on hold and Keith Williams is experienced in running large companies. But it's a piece of news I'm expecting to raise the prospects and share price with it, needs a bit of pick up really to attract some attention.

Purchased further 4290, my total is 34290 and I am going to keep buying more as long as the price is below £1.90. It's a bargain. Royal Mail holds a very important monopoly which has recently had a major boost in sales during the lock down and with lock down ending there is no sign of decline in the parcel delivery business. The current price of £1.84 is well below its true value.

Lot of Royal Mail small share holders are spooked and selling while there are after market closes huge major share buys. The big boys are purchasing after markets close. True value of Royal Mail Share price is between £2.50 and £3.00. Don't be spooked. I am going to hang on to my 30,000 shares at average price £2.03 and I am considering buying more. It is a bargain below £1.90

CC, the story never changes and it's because the employed management culture in the UK is one of playing petty power games, rather than the managers going out and doing the job for real one day a fortnight. I once walked away from a contract because a manager decided to 'save' 50p by only providing one plastic template instead of two. This was a job to distribute and fix heavy metal stanchions to support metal plate signage. The stanchions were to be fixed with metre long threaded rods buried in concrete in holes about 50cm square. The bolts needed to be perfectly upright to fit the base plates, thus a template top and bottom were needed. The profit was very high, but the 'genius' decided to prove his worth by saving 50p per location. I learned much later that it cost a huge amount re-drill the base plates of the stanchions, because the rods were not vertical. They ended up losing a lot of money. But for me that sums up much of the management 'skills' in the UK. Sadly RMG has a great many of these type of managers, none wanting to get their hands dirty, but plenty wanting to interfere in matters of which they have no hands-on experience. But I'm quite sure they're all up to date with the LBGT rainbow elf n'safety tripe.

Companies always target delivery costs for part distribution it always gets worse not better, I worked for a large corp back in the 90s we used to pick up spare parts from the warehouse for our daily calls, emergency part delivery was by in house couriers it all worked very well. It cost too much then it just went crazy it went to a British Rail Red Star in those day an absolute disaster that was parts were getting dropped off in random stations and the engineers spent half the day trying to find their parts. The staff at BR didn't have a clue it was like talking to Bill and Ben the flowerpot men. So they changed it to a private courier company that was chaos also they didn't have a system to track parts orders and part numbers in the order, everything was wrong there. Bike couriers delivered parts to site where customers would shout at them because it would be the fourth time they've delivered the wrong part these couriers used to say to me "How on earth does your company make any money all of these parts are wrong on every delivery I make?". So cutting costs on delivery is a long road to a steep decline in the business profits but managers are clueless they look at it being an easy target to cut costs which just mushroom out of control, they have to write off £Millions in lost parts (multiply the original differential cost of a quality delivery service by 10 that is the multiple the losses come in at). If you've got a good delivery service - KEEP IT, cut costs elsewhere.

Plastic boxes explains why the packaging has changed, they won't fit into lockers, i never really probed him on it as he was stressed about few things unrelated. But at least the lost business is not being executed very well.

JoeSay, The parts come out of an automated warehouse in Leicester, which is not run by RMG. Various hauliers collected from this warehouse, presumably trunking to RMG depots? Everything is in standard grey plastic boxes, each postcoded for the end delivery. The Bristol area had it's own British Gas, RMG/Parcel Force depot at Yate, a secure unmarked building. The loads are collected about 9pm from Leicester, delivered to Yate about midnight, and then broken down to individual van loads for early morning distribution. I believe other gas/plumbing firms were serviced from the same site, ie the goods from the Leicester warehouse were not 100% exclusive to BG.
