I have sent a special delivery to the DWP in Wolverhampton and tracking shows it was signed for at 05:50 am this morning at NW Midlands mail centre.
Does this mail centre has a designated area just for DWP mail or has something gone wrong?

RM used to have a contract with DWP for mail opening and sorting for delivery into local DWP offices.
This stopped a few years ago at several MC's.
As far as I know NW midlands is one of those that kept the contract, if this is the case then your letter has been received into the pipeline correctly.

NW Mids is now the only MC in the country that has a mail opening service for DWP. They introduced 2 new postcodes WV98 & 99 specifically for DWP mail.

It's not just about opening mail!

The letters are opened then sorted to the correct department and then delivered ready sorted to DWP before they open.

It's probably cheaper and more efficient for them to do it this way.
