Final shortlists announced for UK Mail Awards 2006

With the release of the Mail Centre of the Year and Downstream Access Supplier shortlists, the full line-up of those hoping to be successful at these prestigious awards is now complete.

Press Release

The Royal Mail Wholesale sponsored award for Downstream Access Supplier, identifying the contract holder achieving the best overall quality in the last six months at handover to Royal Mail, will go to one of the following shortlisted companies:

DHL Global Mail UK

Regional Mail Services

Target Express


UK Mail

The Mail Centre of the Year prize, sponsored by UK Mail, recognises a Royal Mail centre that has made significant quality of service advances and can show a measurable impact on delivery performance. Using data audited by Postwatch to determine the most improved Mail Centres across the country, the top-performing centres were each invited to submit applications to the judges. These submissions have now been assessed by the judging panel, and whittled down to a shortlist of four:

Oxford Mail Centre

Glasgow Mail Centre

Southend-On-Sea Mail Centre

Tonbridge Mail Centre

These three Mail Centres will be looking to follow in the footsteps of last year\'s victor Shrewsbury, with the winner to be announced at the UK Mail Awards Gala Dinner next week in London. The other categories to be presented on the night, for which shortlists were announced two weeks ago, are:

Database Management sponsored by Royal Mail

Digital Print sponsored by Océ

Domestic Marketing Campaign sponsored by DHL Global Mail

Innovation sponsored by TNT Post

International Marketing Campaign sponsored by Citipost

Technology sponsored by ME-News

The independent panel of judges will meet at the end of October, just before the ceremony itself, to select the winning application in each category.

The 2006 UK Mail Awards presentation will take place on Tuesday 31 October at the industry\'s annual Gala Dinner in the Champagne Suite of the Novotel London West in Hammersmith. BBC Business presenter Declan Curry will present this year\'s Awards at what is expected to be the biggest celebration yet of the best of the mail industry.
