Royal Mail to open nine Christmas parcel centres
The extra capacity is required to deal with the increase in deliveries in the pre-Christmas rush.
The centres will be phased in from this Monday (October 31). It’s the sixth year that the organisation has opened a network of centres dedicated to parcel sorting. Last year, Royal Mail handled 130m parcels in December alone.
A total of 19,000 seasonal staff will be taken on across the group.
