Straight from the Royal Mail Delivery Director Paul Kelly:
“We have been reviewing our delivery operations in Edinburgh South to consider whether it should locate to our site at delivery office.
“After careful consideration of the key areas involved, a full assessment has been made and we have decided that a merger of the two delivery offices will not progress at the moment. . .
“Faced with declining mail volumes and increasingly tough trading conditions, Royal Mail must constantly review the efficiency of its operations. As part of our business-wide transformation, we are currently undertaking one of the biggest modernisation programmes in
industry. This is to ensure we have world class facilities to provide the most efficient and effective network for delivering the post. Almost no other company has daily contact with its customers in the way Royal Mail does, and providing a consistent and high quality service to our customers in Edinburgh South will continue to be our top priority.” UK
