TNT Post targets online retailers

TNT Post UK, part of the PostNL group, has launched a packet and parcel for the online retail market which it reckons will be five to ten per cent cheaper than Royal Mail.

It has invested in automatic sorting machines in its Iver depot for the new service, which will offer real time management information where clients can apply barcodes to their packets, and monitor their progress online.

Guernsey Post has signed on as a client, and its head of bulk mail, Shaun Lihou, said: “We have to ensure that our clients receive an efficient and quality service and working with TNT Post will enable us to fulfil that promise.”

Chief executive officer, Nick Wells, said: “Our expansion into packets and parcels is a key part of strategic growth plan in the UK… Online retail packets and parcel delivery is a growing trend within the postal sector and our aim is to be the main provider in this sector.”
