The yearly awards ceremony, which are sponsored by the Royal Mail’s chief executive Simon Thompson and chief operating officer Achim Dünnwald – recognise the company’s highest performing units and staff.
Hoping to reward teams who go above and beyond, a panel of judges look to factors such as quality of service, safety and efficiency before handing out awards.
Each of the six winning teams secure a prize of £10,000 to spend on enhancements of their choice to their unit.
