Smiths News join the IOC at the Lord Mayor’s Show

On 11th November 2023, Smiths News joined the Institute of Couriers and ten other express brands to showcase clean air delivery at the Lord Mayor’s Show.

The Show is one of the best-known annual events in the city; a vibrant parade which takes part in a three-mile-long procession to mark the Lord Mayor’s first full day in office, celebrating the strength and diversity in the city.

Alderman Michael Mainelli, elected as the 695th Lord Mayor of London, brings a background in transport courier to his role, so it was fitting for us to contribute, showcasing the efforts of our Final Mile delivery service. Teaming up with Institute of Couriers (IOC) and nine other brands, we highlighted our commitment to sustainability by collectively forming an impressive ‘clean air delivery’ float.

On the day a special appearance was made by a Puffin bird which was hand-delivered to the Mayor at Mansion House. The Puffin bird added pageantry to the parade and adorns the coat of arms of both the Lord Mayor and the Institute of Couriers brollies, sparkling in sunshine from the stormy days of autumn.

Chair of IOC, Carl Lomas commended the team: “The Smiths News team was a great credit to the sector, engagement was exceptional, your team made high fives with children along the whole way.”
