CityPost launches new national postal collection and delivery service for businesses
It was announced this week that mail operator CityPost plans to challenge An Post with a new service for businesses.
CityPost is launching a new collection and delivery service for businesses, Postal Pick-up, which will charge 79 cent for a basic letter, 21 cent less than the €1 charge for a stamp that An Post introduced last month.
CityPOST is offering free postal collection from businesses and delivery to anywhere in Ireland, or in 200 countries around the world.
The company is Ireland’s largest privately owned postal service company and is also the largest postal company in Portugal and Northern Ireland.
PostPICK-UP is the latest CityPOST service launched for Irish businesses. It follows the January launch of iPOST, a hybrid mail, one-stop-solution, providing free letterheads, free printing and free envelopes and then processing, packing and posting a letter for just 89c – less than the price of a stamp.
Commenting on the new service, CityPOST CEO, Ian Glass said, “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.”
He added, “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.”
