CHANGE OF ADDRESS FOR MILITARY POSTIES
The best military post office in the world is about to get even better says British Forces Post Office (BFPO) Chief Executive Brigadier Peter Maggs.
Approval has now been given to move the BFPO from Mill Hill in North London to new facilities at RAF Northolt. As part of the move, essential equipment to sort the thousands of letters, packets and parcels that flow through the system each day will be purchased or improved.
"Once the move is complete we will be able to offer a better service to MOD personnel around the world at better value for money for taxpayers," said Brigadier Maggs.
MOD has now appointed Bovis Lend Lease as the Preferred Bidder to construct new buildings and equip it with the latest mail handling equipment.
Subject to ongoing planning approval, work will begin to construct dedicated new buildings later this year, with completion due mid-2007. The BFPO will then test the system fully before transferring operations later that year.
