For any customer using courier or postal delivery services, the question of postage rates is key. The Royal Mail is increasing the price of first class stamps from 46p each to 60p each in April. Similarly, second class stamp prices are set to rise to 50p from 36p. Royal Mail's regulator pointed to factors such as an explosion in emails, SMS messages and social media, as a threat to the traditional delivery service.

Parcel Postage Rates
The impact of this is likely to be felt particularly in the SME market, where large scale business accounts may not be in place with delivery services to achieve reductions on unit costs. Certainly for businesses, sole traders who rely on deliveries to run their own businesses and individuals who regularly need to post mail, there is a great interest in alternative sending models to save money.
