Extending the Early Access Slots Trial to March 2023

On 28 March 2022, we commenced a trial for carriers to book an earlier Access slot, in addition to or in place of an existing Access slot. The trial was initially held at Swindon Inward Mail Centre only, and we subsequently widened the trial so that all carriers (i.e. to include those who are not signed up to the Acceptance by Vehicle schedules) could take the opportunity across a number of other Mail Centres.

We are delighted to announce we are extending the trial until 31 March 2023.

The annex to this letter shows all of the Mail Centres which we are extending the trial to and the times from which the earlier Access slot will be available.  If you would like to participate you will need to sign up to the trial terms by 14 February 2023. The terms are available upon request from your Account Director, who you should also inform which Mail Centre(s) you would like the earlier Access slot(s) at.
