Royal Mail trialing lower price on 2nd class medium parcels

Wednesday, July 12th, 2017

Royal Mail will be running an online price trial for second class medium parcels between 2kg and 5 kg.

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 spokesperson informed Post&Parcel today: “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.
