P2P Mailing expands Heathrow hub
P2P Group, the mailing and distribution solutions provider, as part of a programme of ongoing innovation, is expanding its hub near London Heathrow airport. The changes, which will take place in the coming weeks, will mean the hub will handle about 95% of P2P’s total volumes worldwide.
The facility has been operational for several months and facilitates the management and direct despatch of mail and parcels worldwide.
The hub, which has Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) approval, gives P2P full control of mail items from collection through to delivery into the destination Post Offices’ primary gateways around the world. It includes x-ray capabilities to prepare mail and parcels enabling direct hand-over to airlines to be flown across the world.
By decreasing the company’s reliance on intermediaries, the facility is giving P2P greater control and visibility over how parcels are routed as well as direct management over the quality of service and speed of delivery.
Paul Galpin, Managing Director of P2P Mailing said: “Our hub builds on P2P’s ethos of independence and impartiality. By freeing us from the involvement of intermediary partners in the supply chain, and giving us extended control over the delivery process, the hub enables us to offer improved quality and transit times to our retailers, which of course are benefits that improve the consumer experience. It’s a unique facility for an independent logistics firm and an exciting chapter in P2P’s continued growth.”
