HMV transport providers TNT Express and TNT Post are awaiting the outcome of the retailer’s administration.

Both carriers have confirmed that they worked with the music and film retailer, which appointed administrator Deloitte on Tuesday (15 January).

A spokesman for TNT Post confirmed that the carrier would continue working with HMV as it trades through its administration. TNT Express confirmed that it worked with the retailer, but declined to comment further.

On Monday, TNT Express revealed that UPS had pulled out of its planned €5.16bn take over of the firm, which would have created a company with a combined UK turnover of £1.3bn.

Last week, camera retailer Jessops went into administration, putting a contract held by Unipart Logistics at risk.

A Unipart spokeswoman confirmed it provided the distribution to Jessops' stores, but was unavailable to comment further.
