Efforts we are doing to help you
In order to handle your mail as quickly as possible and to minimise any disruptions, imail comms is collaborating closely with Royal Mail Retail, Royal Mail Wholesale, and our Downstream Access (DSA) mail carrier.
You can help where you can by delivering your data files in advance so that we can send out as much mail as we can on the days before these strikes, preventing delays during the strike and a subsequent backlog in processing.
As normal, our courier will collect DSA mail and deliver it to the receiving Royal Mail incoming mail centres (where we understand there should be limited staff working). Afterward, when the striking employees resume work, this correspondence will be processed.
Unfortunately, Royal Mail has stated that they will prioritise processing parcels above letters because they take up the most space in the inbound mail centres.
Rest assured that we are making every effort to limit any interruption during this strike, and we’ll keep you informed if anything changes regarding the most recent advice and information. Please get in touch with your assigned imail comms Account Manager if you have any questions.
