Totalpost announced today that it has been selected by the North Eastern Purchasing Organisation (NEPO) to supply and service franking machines to local member authorities in the North East of England.

NEPO’s members include Newcastle City Council, Durham County Council, and many others. “This is a fantastic opportunity, and we will work towards developing this relationship [with NEPO] further”, says Carolyn.
