Whistl delivers economy mail for Jersey Post

Postal operator Whistl has expanded its partnership with Jersey Post, the mail company serving Jersey, by delivering the its new economy mail option.

Whistl has provided downstream access services, including collection, sortation and then delivery by Royal Mail, to clients on Jersey since 2014. According to the company, this is the first time it has ‘facilitated a new class of delivery’ for a postal company operating on a national scale.

“We are pleased to have broadened the service we provide to Jersey Post for inbound UK mail and it is a significant development in our international strategy,” said Nick Wells, CEO of Whistl. “Our approach is to work with a client to see how we can create operational and financial efficiencies to benefit them and their stakeholders.”

The new three-five day service, a discount on the current Jersey Post postage rates will see a reduction in costs for customers receiving mainland deliveries.

In the past, the Jersey based service, provided only one to two day services, as well as a tracked service. The new option has been put in place to ‘meet demand from clients whoa re less dependent on day definite delivery’.
