MailmarkTM utilises 2D and 4 – State barcodes to enable retail and wholesale business customers to access the lowest postage rates available and valuable information about individual mailings.

Royal Mail has made significant investments in technology and processes that capitalises on the data within the new barcodes so customers can:

  • Keep track of when their mail enters the mailing system and when it is scheduled to be delivered. This information will be available free of charge via your mailing house or for larger customers via a direct online interface
  • Use the detailed information on errors and returns over a period of time to reduce mailing costs and identify data errors that could save thousands and improve marketing ROI.
  • Predict when items land so they can allocate resources for example at call centres, or perhaps have items land when a local promotion is taking place.
