Shell Goes Nationwide With Postage Stamp Service

From today (Monday 6 December), New Zealand motorists will be able to enjoy a cheaper domestic postal service through Shell's service station network.

Shell New Zealand and mail company, KiwiMail, have teamed up to provide a one-stop mail service which will launch a new 36-cent postage stamp and postal service nationwide.

Shell Communications Manager, Antonius Papaspiropoulos, says the launch follows the overwhelming success of a stamp introduced in the Waikato/Bay of Plenty last Christmas.

The distinctive red and green stamp is clearly differentiated from the standard 40-cent stamp, and is available in books of 10 across Shell's 400-strong nationwide network.

The launch is tied in with a new courier service through Shell's Select brand of convenience stores, which gives the customer another good reason to shop at Shell.

"The new Home pick up ticket, which costs $4.95, allows customers to purchase a package or a box, take it home, dial 0800 Courier, and their parcel will be collected from the door."

The new product fits perfectly with Shell.

"Our Select chain of retail stores are already offering a wealth of convenience products, and mail is a logical addition to that range. Now people can park on the forecourt, whip into a Shell station and purchase envelopes, packages, boxes, tubes and stamps, mailing something off in the space of a few minutes. That's real convenience."

Shell says it is proud to be partnering with the Kiwimail, a company which over the past year has established itself as a leader in letterbox advertising and mailroom management.

"Shell is at the leading edge of the retail revolution, and has established a number of joint ventures which are providing customers with real value. These include the Fly Buys loyalty programme which now has more than half a million members, and a 50 per cent stake in the Burger King franchise. We are confident that our new partnership with KiwiMail will prove just as successful."

Other new products which have met with great success across Shell's retail network in the past year include pre-paid mobile phones and sushi.
