Royal Mail Announce Early Price Increase

An earlier than expected price increase has been announced by Royal Mail, which will take effect in July 2024. The rate changes impact the Letter and Large Letter, both pre-sorted and unsorted, services. The new rates will be effective from the 1st July however this effectively means a last posting date of 26th June for all DSA (Downstream Access – i.e. The Delivery Group, Whistl etc) or 28th June for Royal Mail dispatches.

Royal mail have made this decision due to the substantial decline in letter volumes from 20 billion in 2004/05 to 7 billion in 2022/23 over which time the industry has seen significant changes and continued year on year cost pressures across all carrier networks.
