Scottish postal contracts for TNT and Royal Mail

Scottish Procurement has awarded contracts to TNT Post Scotland and The Royal Mail Group to provide postal services to the Scottish public sector.

The contracts will run from 1 March 2012 to 28 February 2015. The work has been split into two lots. Lot 1 was awarded to TNT Post Scotland, and covers ‘ad-hoc mail’ – the collection and delivery of day-to-day post.

 It also covers ‘hybrid mail’ – where mail is created electronically at desktops, and sent off-site for secure production and delivery. This innovation will reduce both spending on stationery and carbon emissions associated with the collection of mail.

Lot 2 was awarded to The Royal Mail Group. This covers the production and delivery of larger, “planned mailings”.

Both contracts apply to all Scottish public sector organisations.
