Royal Mail slash cost of 5kg 2nd Class Medium Parcels for the Summer

Post and Parcel and Tamebay report that Royal Mail are drastically reducing the price of 2nd class medium parcels for a trial period - but only for postage bought online.

The cost of sending a second class medium parcel will be reduced from £13.75 to £6.29 for a three-month period starting 17th July, online only. The trial ends on 16 October.

In addition, the cost of sending second class Signed For, medium parcels will be £7.29, reduced from £14.75.

A Royal Mail spokesperson said: “The trial is designed to test the popularity of this price point rather than being a trial of the online channel. We’re offering this trial price point online simply because it makes it easier for us to execute.”

The £6.29 price point would be broadly inline with some of the leading economy courier services, and it is significantly less than Royal Mail’s first class service.
