As reported in the media last week, TNT Post UK, a subsidiary of the Dutch-owned TNT Express, is currently working on plans to roll out home delivery service in the UK later this year. The TNT plan will mark the first direct challenge to the Royal Mail monopoly of home delivery in 360 years.
TNT began its first major UK trial in West London last week, and is expected to expand to other major cities this year, including Manchester and Birmingham.
