Destination United Kingdom
As international sales agent for Royal Mail's UK postal services, we can offer you the same high-quality postal services used by Royal Mail customers in the United Kingdom. We have direct access to Royal Mail's national distribution network, which provides delivery of your mail to some 28 million households by about 70,000 Royal Mail postmen and women.
If you already send mail to the United Kingdom, or are planning to in the near future, please read on to find out more about the UK market and the range of services we are able to offer.
When you use the Royal Mail services we can offer, you do not need to set up shop in the UK to be able to access the UK market. It can simply be done from the comfort of your own office. Because your mail will carry a UK stamp or ‘postage paid’ symbol, it will give your customer the impression that your mail was posted in the United Kingdom, making it easier for you to compete with local suppliers.
Whether you send business correspondence, direct mail, catalogues, magazines, newspapers or other printed matter, there is a Royal Mail UK postal service that suits your mailing needs.
If you are attempting to access the UK market for the first time, Royal Mail's unsorted services are the simplest to use. Even if you have been targeting the United Kingdom for some time, these services would be suitable for you especially if you want to save time in preparing your mail.
Royal Mail also offers a number of services to reduce costs on unsorted mail. If you can prepare your mail in such a way that it can be read by Royal Mail’s sorting machines, these services can give you great savings on the standard unsorted services.
As an experienced mailer you have the facilities to sort your mail. Because you are able to do this, you are in effect sharing the work with Royal Mail. Royal Mail will reward you for your part in the mail preparation process by offering you a reduced rate. There are a number of entry criteria you have to meet, and sorting requirements you will have to adhere to, should you decide to use one of the sorted services.
