Royal Mail has today (Monday) confirmed that the relocation of its Carnoustie delivery office to their Dundee East facility will take place next month.
Monday, June 13, was given by Royal Mail as the date that operations would transfer from Queen Street to Dundee East.
According to Royal Mail it is part of their ongoing transformation of its business and cites increased operational efficiency and fit-for-purpose facilities for staff and customers, as well as increasing electronic and declining physical mail, as the deciding factors.
In their announcement Royal Mail stated: “The aim of these changes is to enable us to deliver the most efficient, consistent and reliable service to Royal Mail customers and help secure long term employment and job security for our people.
“We expect there will be no impact on deliveries to our customers. The postmen and women who work in Carnoustie delivery office will continue to serve the local community, delivering a high quality service to our customers.”
Customers will be able to pick up parcels from the Post Office within SPAR at 83 High Street, which will have extended opening hours of Monday to Friday 7am-12noon and Saturday 6.30-11.30am.
It is also possible to arrange redelivery of missed parcels, or have parcels left with a neighbour or nominate a dedicated neighbour by filling out a form at the delivery office.
The announcement also confirmed that there would be no job losses as a result of the move to Dundee East.
