Transforming how we sort your mail
We’re making our sorting operations faster, more reliable and cost effective with new high-speed machinery.
Machines that put mail in the right sequence
We’re introducing new machines so postmen and women no longer need to sort most of their delivery manually. They will receive mail in the order of their route, so they can get straight out on delivery.
Machines that can read handwritten addresses
We’re speeding up our sorting process by introducing machines nationwide to reduce the need to sort handwritten letters manually - sorting a remarkable 11 items a second.
Machines that can sort parcels
Due to their irregular shapes, parcels have traditionally been sorted by hand. We’re bringing in new parcel-sorting machines which can measure, weigh and scan parcels, whatever their shape. Each machine can handle 30,000 items a day, speeding your parcel along to its destination.
What new machinery means for you
• By becoming more efficient, we’re reducing our costs, which will enable us to offer you better value for money.
• More automation will improve the quality of our deliveries.
• The machinery reduces bending and squashing, so we can keep your letters and parcels in even better condition.
• The flexibility of our machines will enable us to introduce new services tailored to your needs.
