Mail

Mail is an important communication tool in today's modern commercial world with many people, especially businesses, relying on the postal service. Everyday hundreds of thousands of items enter the postal system destined for addresses in both the United Kingdom and abroad. The system is used to transport items from one place to another, from one person to another. Items go through the process of being packaged securely, taken to an access point or collected from a given location to enter the postal service. From here they are sorted and transported before being delivered to the recipient.

    Royal Mail

    This service has to be paid for of course. Typically Royal Mail deal with letters whereas the parcel delivery sector is now much more competitive than it ever has been. The postal service is now open to competition, as historically they had a monopoly. Since the monopoly was taken away, there has been an influx of courier and carrier companies entering the market who all offer mail solutions such as parcel delivery.

    Express

    Delivery companies have for some signalled the end of long post office queues. This has been replaced with the need instead to take goods and items to a designated collection point. For those who are prepared to pay a little extra, courier services will collect from customer premises. While offering services for competitive prices to individuals, the small to medium enterprises and larger businesses also use couriers to deliver parcels to customers. In some cases, parcel collections are also made in order to return goods to companies. Many online retailers and the internet arm of major stores rely heavily on a network of delivery drivers. Parcel delivery companies often offer heavy discounts for businesses that ship large amounts of mail on a regular basis. Many delivery services also offer online services such as tracking of goods and parcels and there is often the facility to schedule collections too.
