A NEW TNT Post depot in Rugby has been opened by MP Mark Pawsey.
Rugby is now TNT Post’s central hub, handling up to 30 million items per day. The new depot has created 150 posts.
After opening the depot Mr Pawsey was given a full tour of the facilities and met with the depot operations manager Michael Price, midlands sales director Neil Chapman and depot staff.
Following the event, Mr Pawsey said: “Since I was elected just over a year ago, I have dealt with a wide range of issues raised by Constituents and visited many people and organisations who are part of our community here in Rugby. I am always pleased to see investment locally, so it is with great pleasure that I open this new depot for TNT Post UK. I’ve been extremely impressed by the facility and the innovation it offers the postal sector.”
The facility currently processes up to 40,000 bags of unsorted mail daily but is capable of sorting 30,000 items per hour.
Nick Wells, CEO of TNT Post UK, added: “We are delighted that Mr Pawsey was available to open this depot.
“We have achieved significant year on year growth and expect this trend to continue providing local community employment opportunities.”
