TNT Post UK to launch second end-to-end trial

TNT Post UK, Britain's largest private postal operator, will conduct a second end-to-end (E2E) delivery trial from mid-April 2012 in West London.

In 2010, TNT Post successfully concluded a first E2E trial in Liverpool. The company is using the trial for further testing and analysis of its operations as it would like to roll out a broader end-to-end service when barriers to competition are removed. TNT Post has a long held ambition to launch its own delivery service within the UK but is unable to realise this strategic goal until the Royal Mail VAT exemption on final mile delivery is removed. TNT Post is the second largest UK postal company and currently handles more than 300 million items a month.
