Royal Mail Discounts

Trust Asendia to achieve maximum Royal Mail discounts for you

As a Royal Mail accredited partner, we have access to all of Royal Mail’s routing, sorting & pricing options, and will use your Royal Account. We can advise on which options are best for your mailings and when we produce your mail are able to ensure that the formatting and layouts meet their strict guidelines. This includes producing mailings in line with the Mailmark standards.

Royal Mail collect from us several times a day and we are one of their oldest partners. With Asendia you can achieve postage savings on many mail categories including:

  • Letters
  • Large letters
  • Packets
  • Parcels
  • Advertising Mail
  • Publishing Mail
  • Mailmark

We have sophisticated data management software that enables us to pre-sort your mailing lists prior to producing the mail, so that it is produced in postcode order. This is much more efficient than sorting the mail once it's produced.

Downstream Access Solution

Could an alternative postal service save you money, without cutting corners?

When we profile your UK mailing we can identify if an alternative to a Royal Mail service would be beneficial. We work with leading Downstream Access partners who offer us wholesale rates enabling us to pass savings onto you.

It’s not just about volume either. We also produce the mail in accordance with their specific requirements, and pre-sort the mail so they have less sorting to do; this provides further savings. By coming to us for UK postage quotes first you may not only save money, but also time and hassle. Postal operators typically save their best rates for wholesalers like us.

If you are large enough to deal directly with downstream access providers and get a preferential rate, or you are simply tied into a contract, we can still fulfil your mail and use your own postage accounts.
