TNT Post launches tracked packet and parcel service in UK
TNT Post UK, has launched a new tracked packet and small parcel service that could increase pressure on the UK universal service provider's e-commerce growth.
TNT Post said the new P&P InSight service is part of its Packet & Parcels service, allowing packets or parcels to be tracked through the chain until it reaches the last mile.
The new service is a downstream access product, meaning that Royal Mail itself will be involved in the service as a delivery partner, but discussions are being held with other service providers who may also be able to provide this last mile element.
Customers can use existing barcodes for tracing purposes, with tracking information being made available through a new online web portal.
