UK-based postal operator Whistl has partnered with Jersey Post to provide a new economy mail option for business customers on the island of Jersey, a Crown dependency of the UK.
Economy mail will provide customers with a three- to five-day service, offering a discount on the current Jersey Post postage rates. Historically Jersey Post has offered a one- to two-day service and a tracked service. The new three- to five-day service is being introduced to meet demand from clients who are less dependent on day definite delivery but still require a consistent quality of service.
Tim Brown, CEO, Jersey Post, said, “We have a long term and successful relationship with Whistl and are delighted to have developed this new service which offers our business customers more flexibility and choice when using Jersey Post for UK deliveries.”
Nick Wells, CEO of Whistl, said, “We are pleased to have broadened the service we provide to Jersey Post for inbound UK mail and it is a significant development in our international strategy. Our approach is to work with a client to see how we can create operational and financial efficiencies to benefit them and their stakeholders.”
Whistl has provided Downstream Access services (collection, sortation and then delivery by Royal Mail) to clients on Jersey since 2014. This is the first time the company has facilitated a new class of delivery for a national postal operator.
