The new delivery service will operate alongside the traditional Royal Mail postman but the TNT Post Postie will complete their deliveries using bicycles. In addition, for the first time every letter is scanned, with a track and trace service, which will help provide a high quality of customer service. TNT Post has a distribution and sorting centre in Warrington, where the sorting of mail for the new service will take place.
TNT Post is actively recruiting in the region and has seen over 600 candidates so far. The nature of the job roles on offer varies from Posties to back office support. TNT Post began its own end-to-end delivery service in April 2012 in West London. Following the success of the trial, it has since extended its operations to South West London, with the intention of creating a nationwide delivery network to households across the UK by 2015. The company has created over 1000 jobs in London and aims to create 20,000 in the next 5 years.
