The Idea

Allan Chester, a Canadian-born entrepreneur, recognised that expats were embracing technology to keep in touch; using tools such as email and Skype to communicate across international borders. They still relied however, on friends and family back in the UK to receive and forward their letters and parcels.

Post and postal addresses were physical barriers that were affecting individuals and businesses across the globe.

The Solution

Allan set about developing an online platform that could be accessed from any internet connected device. anywhere in the world, to allow users to manage their post and parcels via a "virtual" UK address.

Allan’s mission was to create the ultimate online mail management solution - mail scanning, mail forwarding, parcel forwarding and fulfilment - all tied together with virtual UK addresses.

UK Postbox was born, and 9 years on the business has gone from strength to strength, offering businesses and individuals services on a global scale.
