When you’re running a company, sending mail is a key factor to its success from invoices to advertising, from statements to official documents, from small packets and parcels to organising returns.
Using specific mailing services for business mail is essential. Your business mail is important to you: it brings in business; it’s a channel for remuneration; it gets your company known in that big commercial world.
Finding the right company with whom to entrust your business mail is equally important. Service and experience will go just as many miles as your mail here. Ultimately, the mailing company needs to be able to offer you what you need for your business. So consider carefully what you need:
international as well as UK postage
extensive routes and destinations
a variety of mail processing options
opportunities to reduce your mailing costs
expertise with crossing borders and local knowledge
giving your mail a ‘local look’
value added services that will help enhance business mail
reliable and proven delivery services
One of the largest postal logistics operators in the world, Asendia, ticks all these boxes. Operating in 15 countries, including the UK, and delivering to more than 220 destinations, Asendia was borne out of a joint venture between postal giants La Poste and Swiss Post. Not only are they the national post offices of France and Switzerland respectively, but they are also two of the oldest in the world, able to trace their heritage back centuries. Their legacy is a wealth of experience, an extensive network of delivery routes and resources, and considerable knowledge of the postal industry.
