Delivery Solutions are the way in which recognition is taken of the customer needs to have many varied goods physically delivered to their factory, warehouse, office or home. Size, shape, nature and value of the goods will affect the choice of delivery mode as well as speed of transit and the need for customer interaction. The latter includes such things as requirements for proof of delivery, specialist assembly and/or installation and collection of returned goods and transit packaging. Cost will often be a key component as well as reliability and trust.

Channels are many from multi-user such as post, parcels, and courier and shared user transport providers. Specifically designed solutions may be required to meet specific needs of one company, product, the volumes to be delivered and destination.

PLCWW has considerable experience in designing efficient and effective delivery solutions and supporting in-house delivery teams. Email us with your problem, see how we can help.

  • The End of 1st Class

    Several European Postal administrations are starting to review the future of their mail services in light of continuing falling mail volumes.  Denmark has already announced it will cease 1st class mail and Saturday deliveries. While Direct Mail appears to be enjoying something of a resurgence and packet volumes continue to grow postal authorities are faced with a dilemma.  Insufficient 1st class volumes to justify the network costs but an E-commerce marketplace that increasingly wants items delivered with speed.  With TNT exiting from the final mile mail delivery market and Royal Mail loosing share in the crucial E-commerce market will we see a major change to the basic 1st/2nd service specification in the UK?

  • PLCWW helps businesses go digital

    After 12 years successfully supporting businesses manage their postal operations we now spend more of our time supporting the same businesses move to digital media.  More specifically to integrate their postal operation with their digital communications systems.  Recent work with local authoroties have shown how significant savings can be made even though physical and digital communications systems have to run side by side.

    The opportunities in the Uk and Europe for businesses to integrate physical and digital is significant and those that went totally digital are now moving to redevelope physical mail in a controlled way.  Recent volume data form UK and european postal administrations suggests the decline in post is flattening as companies look for ways to appeal to consumers who have sophisticated digital systems that make selling on line more difficult.
