There’s even better news for those who access products from the Royal Mail Business Mail price tariff. We’ve been through and compared the November price guide with the current October price guide, and we can’t find a single price that’s been increased. This means the price you are paying today won’t increase in January unless something happens to make Royal Mail change their mind.
With 19 days of strikes about to start this Thursday, with the CWU aiming to cause maximum disruption to the postal industry in the run up to Christmas and decimate Black Friday/Cyber Monday deliveries, you’ll be needing a really good excuse to carry on using Royal Mail.
The strikes will impact different areas of the network, so in November you’ll see the network strike followed by processing followed by deliveries to ensure that the entire network is totally borked and backed up with parcels. To really pile on the pressure, the entire Black Friday/Cyber Monday period will see daily strikes so start planning now to use alternative carriers wherever you can.
Will not seeing your Business Mail prices increase in the New Year be enough to keep you loyal to Royal Mail? Well that assumes the strikes don’t kill your business and you are still here to carry on trading, or haven’t simply switched your traffic to an alternative supplier with no intentions of returning to Royal Mail.
