Whistl marches on with raft of new mailing business

WellsPostal operator Whistl is hailing a raft of client wins and contract renewals just months after it secured a management buyout from PostNL.
Major client wins from competitors include a 20 million items per year contract for Dixons Carphone Warehouse, which was held jointly by UK Mail and Secured Mail, meanwhile it has also picked up a 37 million item per year contract for mailing house OTM Opus Trust Marketing from Secured Mail and QVC from Royal Mail.
Its Scottsih division has also secured a seven year deal with Edinburgh based Aegon, to collect, sort and transport 10 million items of mail a year. The contract, thought to be the longest in the history of the deregulated postal market, joins a number of high profile client contract renewals including Inchinnan headquartered M&Co Stores, one of the largest privately-owned fashion retailers in the UK.
Whistl’s launch client in 2004 Sky has also renewed its contract; while the AA has retained Whistl for its mailing activity in addition to renewals secured with Cotton Traders, Direct Wines and Synertec (which works closely with the NHS).
Other client contract renewals within the financial sector include Royal Sun Alliance, Swinton Insurance, Standard Life on a five year contract and Allied Irish Bank. Whistl already works with Bank of Ireland, Ulster Bank and Danske Bank in Northern Ireland and is the only national alternative postal operator in the province.
Within the charity sector Whistl has renewed a contract with Macmillan and other notable client renewals include long standing client Hillary’s Blinds, M&Co Stores, and Webmart the print management company.
Whistl chief executive Nick Wells said: “The range of new client wins and contract renewals we have secured reinforces Whistl’s strength in the postal market. We are committed to providing the best client service in the sector and our collaborative way of working with existing and new clients’ delivers efficiency and cost savings for them and improved service for their customers. Clients trust Whistl to deliver for them.”
