Post Office Ltd has announced that it will trial further ways of providing sustainable postal services to communities across the UK.

The company has already proceeded with more than 100 outreach outlets in rural communities, that offer Post Office services for reduced or flexible hours through local partners or through a mobile Post Office.

Based on this encouraging pilot scheme, Post Office Ltd now hope to roll out 130 more of these outlets in urban communities, which if successful, could mean a significant number of additional outreaches branched on top of the 500 originally planned.

Alan Cook, managing director of Post Office Ltd, said: “We are committed to maintaining and developing a sustainable network which continues to play a vital role at the heart of communities throughout the UK and we know that to do so we have to continue to look at innovative ways to run our outlets.”

The trials a part of Post Office Ltd’s on-going strategy to maintain a sustainable network of around 12,000 outlets across the UK, following the government’s decision to close 2,500 existing branches.
