Jersey Post has partnered with Whistl, the second largest postal operator in the UK, to offer its business customers a new class of service that will reduce postage cost for mainland deliveries.
Economy mail will be a three to five day service offering a discount on the current Jersey Post postage rates.
Historically Jersey Post, which is the Island’s licensed universal service provider of mail services, has offered a one to two day service and a tracked service. The new three to five day service is being introduced to meet demand from clients who are less dependent on day definite delivery but still require a consistent quality of service
Tim Brown, CEO, Jersey Post said:
“We have a long term and successful relationship with Whistl and are delighted to have developed this new service which offers our business customers more flexibility and choice when using Jersey Post for UK deliveries.”
Nick Wells, CEO of Whistl said:
“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. Our approach is to work with a client to see how we can create operational and financial efficiencies to benefit them and their stakeholders.”
Whistl has provided Downstream Access services (collection, sortation and then delivery by Royal Mail) to clients on Jersey since 2014 and this is the first time it has facilitated a new class of delivery for a national postal operator.
