TNT Post UK to launch second E2E trial
TNT Post, Britain’s largest private postal operator, is to conduct a second end-to-end
delivery trial from mid-April in West London following the successful conclusion of its first
E2E trial in Liverpool.
The company is using the trial to enable it to carry out further testing and analysis of its
operations and would like to roll out a broader end-to-end service when barriers to
competition are removed.
The company 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.
Nick Wells, CEO TNT Post commenting on the trial said:
“TNT Post has built an excellent reputation for quality, innovation and providing choice for
its clients. We now want to take those qualities and apply them to our own delivery service.
We want to make a significant investment in infrastructure and create thousands of jobs in
the UK but the government is doing little to help us to do this. We need the government to
announce that it is going to allow fair competition in the UK postal market by removing the
Royal Mail VAT exemption on final mile delivery”.
