The contract will cover the collection, delivery and sortation of all business mail including council tax communications, parcels and special delivery items as well as bulk mail postings.

Terry Brewer, Divisional Director Commercial, Contracts and Procurement from London Borough of Harrow and Chair of the London Postal Services Board, said: “The participating London Boroughs are delighted with the results of the tender process which has seen Royal Mail being awarded the contract again. We look forward to working with Royal Mail to achieve further savings and efficiencies and receive a quality service.”

Rachel Winham, Head of Elections and Local Government at Royal Mail, said: “Royal Mail is proud to serve the London Boroughs. The postal board has secured a great deal for all the Boroughs as this deal has enabled all of them to have a cost efficient way for the procurement of postal services in London. We are also pleased that seven new boroughs have joined the contract this time around.

“The winning of this contract is testament to the hard work of our postmen and women across London, who already provide a high quality of service to 2.2 million residential and 175,000 business addresses, six days a week.”
