  1. Hidden in the weeds of all that lot.

    Royal Mail Service code BPL Small parcel rates have gone up around 6.5%

    BPL is now no longer cheaper than Online prices.

    Last year 2kg Small Parcel was £2.72 BPL and £2.85 Online.
    This year 2kg Small Parcel is £2.90 BPL and £2.90 Online.

  2. Graham is correct. I am looking at an 18p increase per small parcel. That’s a huge cost to bear and is not being mentioned in the headline increase.

  3. we recently received a return from” Royal mail”

    we dont enjoy paying more for stupidity!
