The Strategic Mailing Partnership
The Strategic Mailing Partnership (SMP) is a professional body that represents and protects the interests of mailing houses across the UK. Sponsored by Royal Mail Wholesale, and supported by the whole of Royal Mail the SMP aims to raise standards in the mailing industry.
The partnership promotes better mail for all; from the senders and receivers, but more importantly, the manufacturers and mailing agents operating behind the scenes.
The SMP is the largest group in the UK of mail and print suppliers and service providers. Its members – known as ‘The Mailmakers’ – belong to the only known specialist supply chain network in Post in Europe.
“Since the SMP launched in 2008, we have reset the clock on the way the Mailing House sector and Royal Mail engage with each other, for the better of the industry. We are here to promote better mail for the sender and receiver, but more importantly for you, the makers and the bearers.
By being a member of The SMP, you can discuss and consult on issues and changes that will directly affect your industry, and share best practice on the mail manufacturing processes that will to drive your industry forward and deliver better mail.” – SMP Chair, Judith Donovan CBE
