Ireland-based CityPOST has announced the launch of PostPICK-UP, a new national postal collection and delivery service for business customers.
CityPOST said that PostPICK-UP will undercut the annual costs of the existing universal provider, An Post, by up to 21%.
The company will up the mail from the customers’ business and post it for 79c per item.
Mail sent using CityPOST’s PostPICK-UP is individually barcoded and can be tracked, from collection to delivery. Mail is scanned on collection, at sorting and on delivery by the CityPOST team.
CityPOST, which is Ireland’s largest independent postal service company, has a sorting facility in Greenogue Business Park and is also active in Portugal and Northern Ireland.
CityPOST CEO, Ian Glass commented: “CityPOST is delighted to launch our flagship product for businesses, PostPICK-UP. It is clear that post still has an important role to play for businesses. It is also clear, that Irish businesses want to pay less for their postal service. CityPOST is delighted to deliver a choice that has been missing from the Irish postal market.
“We believe that there is a real opportunity to grow the postal market in Ireland, but this is only possible through innovation and developing new products, like PostPICK-UP, Hybrid mail and new price points. CityPOST’s strategy is to innovate, to disrupt, but also to partner with other providers, with the goal of creating a better system. Our experience in Portugal and as is evident among many European countries, is that competition is good for postal services and customers and ultimately drives postal volumes.”
