When a business sends a mailing domestically, they will often entrust the services of their national postal carrier. In the UK, that would be Royal Mail, or a downstream access provider, such as Whistl.
But when it comes to international mailing, and there are recipients in 252 countries and territories, choosing a single carrier is no longer an option.
Each country will have its postal carriers and it would be impossible to have the volumes required to have contracts with all of them. Even if you did, the extra work required would hardly be worth it.
That's where MHI come in. With our international carrier network, comprised of 112 direct carrier contracts with postal offices all over the world, we help businesses distribute their mail worldwide.
IRIS, our award-winning technology, takes your mailing requirements, including countries, quantities, weight, and service level, and selects the most cost-effective routing. We'll provide you with a quote and help you mail the world.
You'll tell us your mailing volume, quantity and item weight. You'll also share your mailing requirements; whether that's speedy priority, cost-effective economy, or transparent fully tracked.
Next, our team will put those requirements into IRIS, and provide you with a quote based on the most cost-effective routing to send your mailing. Once accepted, your mail be delivered into MHI, where our skilled operations team will sort it into the relevant carriers zones.
After that, your mail will be exported, and injected into the relevant carrier's delivery network, before the final mile delivery is completed and your customer receives their mail.
If it's a UK mailing, whether business or advertising, our experienced team will use our contracts with Royal Mail and other DSA providers to ensure you receive the best combination of price and service level.

“We have worked with MHI for many years and have always enjoyed a very efficient and professional service. The whole team is very approachable for advice and offering solutions for potential problems. Even through the pandemic with worldwide service issues they were constantly updating service lists and using their many years experience to source open routes for our mail.”
“We reached out to MHI to help develop a strategy to reactivate our opted-out customers. As a result of GDPR, we see an increasing amount of our newly acquired customers opt-out, meaning it was more difficult than ever to retain them. We developed a global direct mail plan that saw us direct mail across Europe and, thanks to the collaboration with MHI, saw a +3ppts uplift in customers returning as a result of receiving direct mail. Furthermore, the cost to reactivate these people through direct mail was significantly more cost-effective than utilising our other paid channels.”
“We have been working with MHI for a number of years and have always delivered an excellent and efficient service for many of our international campaigns. The team are friendly, pro-active and always happy to help. The process is seamless, the costs are always competitive and they efficiently deliver – no pun intended whilst adhering to tight deadlines”.
