Postal Solutions

The UK and European Postal Markets are in the middle of a programme of liberalisation and de-regulation that is introducing competition and opportunity for postal users to improve efficiency and save costs.

In the UK Ofcom has granted Royal Mail considerable commercial freedom and Royal Mail has responded with price increases that are causing delivery charges from all carriers to increase.

The review of the Universal Service Obligation is a cultural and political hot potato but change is certainly necessary if Royal Mail is going to achieve some level of commercial stability.

Any organisations involved in the post, packets or parcels markets, where Royal Mail currently operates, needs to have this on its strategic agenda.

Spiral4 closely monitors developments in this sector.
