The cost-effective approach to bulk mailing

Drive your prices down and your service levels up

Downstream Access is a highly efficient and cost-effective bulk mailing service that capitalizes on new freedoms in service provision. Transport operators other than Royal Mail can move mail throughout the UK to Royal Mail Inward Centres where Royal Mail completes the final end delivery.

Lower your costs, significantly

Downstream Access delivers significantly lower costs as transport operators can move mail from the collection point to Royal Mail Centres more economically than Royal Mail currently offers.  Sword Apak supports established transport operators TNT and UK Mail using two services for access clients:

  • Access 70 mailing items are sorted into 86 different selections (reflecting 86 geographic areas)
  • Access 1400 mailing items are sorted into 1525 different selections (reflecting 1525 geographic areas)

Downstream Access is available as a stand-alone front-end version or as a callable DLL that can be incorporated into your existing mailing solutions. The solution provides all financial reports, line listings and labels files and has been fully tested for accuracy by Royal Mail.
