Post and Parcel Solutions

Orbital Mailing provides a wide range of post and parcel distribution solutions. We are completely independent and work with a wide range of service providers in order to give our customers the right service to meet their specific and varying needs. Our services incorporate:

Mailing within the UK
Since deregulation there are now a number of suppliers who collect and pre-sort mail from their customers and transport to Royal Mail for the final mile. This process, known as Downstream Access (DSA), offers clients the benefit of lower costs, guaranteed delivery dates and enhanced service. With open competition in the market there has never been a better time to review your postage expenditure.

However, the bewildering array of charges, dependant on such factors as size, weight, quantity, speed of service, destination and even whether the mailer is enclosed in paper or poly, creates potential for confusion. Our knowledge and expertise ensures that we provide clients with a value-added service that guarantees the very best postal prices every time they mail. We have teamed up with a number of alternative postal suppliers to ensure that we always find the best available discounted service and that any saving is passed on to our clients. After all, postage generally accounts for about 50% of the mailing budget and we have shown many of our client’s substantial savings.

International mailings
As one of the UK's leading mail companies we have the negotiating power to tap into very competitive rates with a wide range of overseas postal consolidators. As well as providing a wide range of international postal services and competitive postage rates, our 60,000 sq ft mail fulfilment operation and 100,000 sq ft pick and pack centre provides the appropriate level of resources to handle your mailing campaigns.

Parcel Distribution
The Orbital Group handles high volumes of parcels each year enabling us to negotiate keen rates with our carrier partners. Clients can benefit from our buying power for UK and International parcel carriage where distribution originates from any of our premises - either as a one-off project or on an ongoing basis.

Within the Group we distribute parcels of literature and goods to high streets, businesses, establishments such as schools and surgeries and, of course, home addresses, on behalf of publishers, mail order businesses, travel companies, universities, white good manufacturers, government departments, tourist destinations and many others. We have warehousing and packing services at several of our sites and are equally happy handling small or large parcel projects.

Re-posting from overseas
For overseas companies wishing to target UK customers, we provide the ideal partnership by taking care of your postal requirements in the UK.

Returns Management
To ensure that your database remains clean and up to date, we can manage any postal returns on your behalf. We will manage all returns, capture data and, if required, update your database to ensure that wastage is minimised in all future campaigns.

We have the resources to undertake the sort of tasks that others can't manage. For more information or a competitive quote, call 01233 211211 or fill out a Contact Form.
