Journey of a Letter

Sharing buttons:



hope you have a lovely birthday

lots of love Amelia


I mean yeah

have you ever wondered about the journey

of a letter

how does it get from you to its final

destination I start my collection at one

o'clock visit our 100 pillar boxes over

free collections


when I've collected all my posts from my

roots I transport the post to Mount

Pleasant for it to be soldiers


there are 2000 members of staff here at

Mount Pleasant all working to ensure

your post is processed and delivered we

saw hundreds and thousands of letters

and parcels here at Mount Pleasant each

day this is the color Fresa

custom machine which rejects any item

larger than the standard letter or card

it's also suppressed the first and

second class stamps items the color

phaser custom machine processes 22 to 24

thousand items per hour by their cars

like a millions can be posted first

class one day and we deliver to the

recipient the last working day

the post now goes across to the

intelligent letter sorting machine


the machine reads the postcode and

prints a bar code on each envelope this

bar called holds details of the address


the mail is now taken to the compact

sequence sorting machine this machine

sucks all the mail into the order that

it will be delivered in


Amelia's card now begins the outward

journey towards mineral Hill delivery



I Drive the post to which my Hill

delivery office overnight in time for it

to be sorted ready to be delivered later

that day bundles of letters are sorted

into a frame each address has its own

slot or Philip once the letters are in

order they are delivered on fit by a

post person

Amelia's card has arrived in time for

her grandmother's birthday


so when you receive a card on your

birthday or any letter in the post just

think this is the journey of a letter
