New Royal Mail International Business Contract Prices

From the 2nd of January, there will be new Royal Mail International Business Contract Prices coming into effect. You should consult the new price guides as prices for some products/territories will rise by as much as 20%, although others are being held.

As well as new formats which could save money, it’s worth considering upgrading to tracked services, as for some destinations (e.g. the USA), tracked will become cheaper than untracked services.

Royal Mail International Business Contract Prices from 2nd January 2024

International Tracked services (country-priced)

Royal Mail are reducing or holding Tracked prices across most countries, with a few exceptions

International Tracked Heavier

Royal Mail are introducing a standard rate card for International Tracked Heavier (parcels up to 30kg, on product codes HVB/E/K/L)

Letterboxable Parcels

The New Year will also see the introduction of a new Letterboxable Parcels product for items with dimensions less than 353 x 250 x 30 mm, which are at a lower cost than Tracked/untracked parcels for a selection of European destinations

Untracked International Business Products (country-priced)

You will notice generally increasing prices which Royal Mail say reflect higher delivery costs. They point out that Business Tracked (MP7) is now the most cost-effective way to send parcels to USA.

Volume-Related Discounts

Royal Mail are introducing Volume-Related Discounts (VRDs) on the untracked, country-priced services (both letters and parcels), dependent on the number of international items posted per site per order. These discounts will be automatically applied to your invoiced price
