Has anyone considered moving into a niche market rather than general? I was searching for a transporter for live fish and the companies website states that APC are the only registered carrier of live fish in the country. This cannot be true... Can it?

Probably? Livestock is a different kettle of fish.. And fish not being as common as sheep or pig transportation is a specialist thing.

Another one I can think of is specialist cakes... Yep cakes on a bike.. Now Ive never tried it and dont really intend to, but have been asked out of urgency and I declined, as the end result would not have been good I would Imagine.



I picked up a birthday cake (proper bakers one) once on the bike, no problem

My wife has a cake business and I'm her unpaid courier. Delivering a 4-tier wedding cake is not recommended!
