UK Mail, a trading name of DHL Parcel UK Limited and formerly known as Business Post, is a postal service company operating in the United Kingdom, which has competed with the Royal Mail in collection and distribution of mail since the deregulation of the postal service in January 2006. Its distribution network delivers mail to local Royal Mail sorting offices for last mile delivery through downstream access.
UK Mail originated as a taxi firm in Harrow in 1971. In just a few years, the company evolved into a national business offering same day courier and overnight parcel delivery. By 1986, the then much larger company became Business Post and was listed on the London Stock Exchange in 1993. UK Mail was granted a seven year licence by Postcomm in 2003 to provide postal services for business customers.
