Transforming how we sort your mail
Machines that put mail in the right sequence
We’ve made our mail sorting and preparation operations faster, more reliable and cost effective with new high-speed machinery.
We’ve introduced new machines so postmen and women no longer need to sort most of their delivery manually. They now receive most mail in the order of their route, reducing the amount of time spent in preparation.
We now have machines that speed up our sorting process by reading your handwriting - sorting a remarkable 11 items a second. This reduces the need to sort handwritten letters manually.
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’ve reduced costs, which has enabled us to offer you better value for money.
- More automation has improved 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 now enables us to introduce new services tailored to your needs.
