We hear from the Royal Mail team about how the work we’re doing on the frontline is making an impact across the UK. Not just for people stuck at home, but for business, the NHS and vital services like care homes too.
No place in Royal Mail felt the impact of the coronavirus pandemic sooner than our Heathrow Worldwide Distribution Centre (HWDC). The plant keeps our global business moving and colleagues there realised life would never be the same as soon as the first changes were apparent from parcel volumes due from China.
More than 1,000 technicians are keeping our fleet of 50,000 vehicles on the road. In this episode, we hear from some of the 'workshop warriors' who are working hard to get our teams back on the road as quickly as they can.
The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall have sent a message of support to our postmen and women. Exclusively for RM Radio, listen to His Royal Highness read the letter to colleagues in full. Also in this episode, how we're delivering vital coronavirus testing kits.
We meet postmen and women across the UK delivering more than just parcels and letters. Discover how they're brightening up the dark days of lockdown life for vulnerable customers and raising smiles - and charity cash - by hitting their rounds in fancy dress.
Welcome to the first episode of RM Radio. For the next five minutes, let our postmen and women give you an insight into life on delivery during coronavirus, as we explore Royal Mail's key worker status.
