TNT Post UK scores major deal with NHS’ PRO-CURE agency

TNT Post UK has scored a two-year contract with PRO-CURE, an NHS service agency and its two partners, NHS Commercial Solutions and East of England.

300,000 GBP postal savings are expected from the new partnership with TNT UK which promised to eliminate the use of traditional franking machines. By offering letter prices of less than 26.8 pence per letter for transit times of two days (max.), TNT Post is outperforming its biggest competitor, Royal Mail.
“More than ever before, public savings are paramount”, said TNT Post UK CEO, Nick Wells. 
In fact, Royal Mail has announced a rate increase, i.e. 50p for Second Class and 60 for First Class letters.
“The NHS is under enormous pressure to make efficiency savings and we are really pleased that with TNT Post we have secured cash savings on postal collection services at a time of escalating prices”, confirmed Lee Collins, managing director of PRO-CURE.
TNT UK’s new postal service was launched for PRO-CURE trusts in Oxfordshire, Hampshire and Buckinghamshire at the beginning of June 2012.
