Many small businesses rely on so-called “white van men” to do all of their product deliveries and indeed many small businesses such as locksmiths or plumbers consist solely of one entrepreneur in his or her van.

Well, firstly, they are called “white van men” for a reason – 95% of them are in fact male. Secondly, you probably shouldn’t refer to them using that term anymore because apparently a third of them find the term rude and insulting. We’re sorry if you are one of the people who take offence!
