Changes To Postal Deliveries In Fareham
Royal Mail is making some changes to the way it delivers mail in Fareham areas over the next few weeks.
From this week, postmen and women will use new delivery methods and adopt new delivery routes.
Royal Mail is writing to every address in Fareham about the changes and this includes households, businesses and other organisations.
Royal Mail provides one of the most comprehensive and best value mail services in the world. Postmen and women play a vital role in Fareham, as well as across the rest of the UK, where delivers are made to almost 29 million addresses, six days a week.
However, they say they need to modernise the way they operate. They are therefore making changes in Fareham to maintain services and to keep prices as low as possible.
They claim fewer letters are now posted every day and they need to organise delivery routes to be as efficient as possible. We also deliver more larger items and so we are investing in new equipment to carry these items to customers even more securely.
The new equipment also reduces the risk of injury to postmen and women from carrying heavier mail bags.
What this means for the Fareham area:
Royal Mail will continue to deliver in the morning and for a longer period during the day.
Many customers will continue to get their mail by lunchtime.
The time customers receive mail will depend on where they live on the new delivery route. This may be later or possibly earlier than current delivery times.
When mail volumes vary, delivery arrangements and times may change
Royal Mail's Delivery Sector Manager, Martin Clothier said: "We are proud of the high regard in which our postmen and women are held in Fareham.
"The local delivery team and I are fully committed to providing a high quality of service that is as reliable and friendly as customers have come to expect from Royal Mail over many years."
