Swiss Post: No price increases in 2019
Swiss Post has decided not to increase prices for letters and parcels in 2019 – but it is “seeking dialogue with the regulator” over prices in 2020.
Furthermore, Swiss Post will refrain from charging the customs inspection fee of 13 francs for another year.
In a statement issued today (29 June), the company said: “Swiss Post has not increased its prices for A and B Mail letters for 14 years. Despite shrinking mail volumes and a difficult market environment, Swiss Post will again refrain from raising prices next year – and this also applies to parcels.”
The postal operator pointed out that: “While it is good news for customers, it means a decrease in revenue for Swiss Post.” Consequently, Swiss Post said it would “seek dialogue with the price regulator in the coming year in order to discuss the pricing structure for letters and parcels from 2020”.
