Product Description

Chris Reid was pretty much your typical kiwi kid, but in 1975, something would happen that changed his world and impacted millions.

Reid, with his trusty Austin car, became one of the first courier drivers for a tiny company in London calling itself DHL.

Pulling in mates from New Zealand, Australia and the UK, Reid and his gritty band of colonials helped turn DHL’s London office into the heart of a global empire that today operates jets, helicopters, boats and drones.

How did they do it?

This inspirational story of how Reid battled governments and international laws to make courier services legal shows that you can’t stop an idea whose time has come…


Join Reid in a blow by blow description on how to build a successful business, virtually from scratch.

While global media attention over the years has focused more on company founder Larry Hillblom who vanished in the 1990s in mysterious circumstances, the real hard work in DHL was done by Reid and his team.

Fly By Night is essential reading for anyone in business, and entertaining reading for everyone else.
