Recently, The Royal Mail in the UK introduced a brand-new postal service which comprises of setting up post-boxes all across the country, to make the parcel service easier and readily available to a wider group of the population. It claims to enable a wide range of people ranging from small businessmen and sellers to online shoppers to make their returns easier and delivery duration to a minimum. They don’t need to reach out to faraway places to have their parcels delivered or returned, now they can just have it by their streets with a minimum to no cost service. The initiative was aimed at making the lives of the people more comfortable in terms of postal services.
All the major UK regions, including places like Cardiff, Birmingham, Aberdeen, and Leeds are going to be introduced with the parcel postboxes in the following months. The organization has claimed that the set up will begin from August and said to be completed in a period of about 6 months from then. The company has detected a total of 1400 meter boxes that claim to have a secure foundation and also a significant access aperture that might come in handy when the conversion of these meter boxes into postboxes are going to take place. The company claims that they have been preparing it for a year now and after the successful trial of the boxes in 2018, they are now sure of the initiative they’re putting on. After the set up in Cardiff, Birmingham, Aberdeen, and Leeds, the post boxes are said to be put up in other regions too like Harrogate and Skipton.
The pre-paid postal service is said to be securely designed and can be used by a bunch of individuals or groups, for their business purposes or personal matters. The experience will be the same as that of posting a letter. The pre-paid postal service is said to be open for 24/7, that means one can post a parcel at any time of the day and any day of the week. This postal service is said to benefit the online sellers in a pretty big way as they won’t have to run business offices for regular long hours. Instead, they can just look after their business in their extra time. People with interest in online shopping will have an efficient delivery time and a quick return service. With the new postal service, people can easily mail back their barcoded online shipments without going through the unwanted return procedures.
This initiative will be the company’s first major change since the last 160 years in terms of putting up with their postal service all across the UK. The launch of this prepaid postbox service will be a completely new agenda in all of their existence. This will also conclude the company’s sustainability in this modern world and its significance associated with postal services.
