Royal Mail London 2012 Olympic Games delivery arrangements

No primary category set

10,000 Royal Mail workers will be working to ensure items are delivered in London during the Olympic Games. What’s even better news is that Royal Mail will not have to pay the £25 per item UPS Olympic delivery fee, so anything sent to an Olympic venue via the post will be charged at Royal Mail’s normal rates.

All collections and deliveries will take place as normal, however due to the congestion caused by the games delivery timings may change. There may be some mail which is delayed a day because postmen and women will start their rounds earlier due to the extra traveling time required because of the transport restrictions.

Households and businesses in Central and South London areas (E, EC, N, NW, SE, SW, W and WC postcodes) are advised, if possible, to post their mail earlier in the day than usual. Customers posting mail to these postcodes are advised, if possible, to post a day earlier or of course be prepared for it to take an extra day to deliver.

Whilst they can’t guarantee that eBay and Amazon customers won’t leave low DSRs or open A-Z claims during the Olympics, Royal Mail have done what they can to keep Londoners informed. They have written to two million households and businesses letting them know about Olympic delivery arrangements and have set up a dedicated team of Royal Mail Olympic advisers who can be reached on 0845 607 2012.

Royal Mail have a dedicated website to help you cope with the inconveniences of the Olympic Games at www.royalmail.com/2012. There may also be some minor delays to local deliveries in the vicinity of the Olympic Torch as it’s convey trundles around the country.
