    For many businesses, sending items by post is simply not an option. They may have many parcels to pack and ship on a daily basis, or the items may be too big to be handled by Royal Mail. Whatever the reason, when either numbers or large size is involved, a courier can offer a more effective service.

    UK Post Rates

    For individuals too, in many cases using a courier service makes more sense. UK postage rates will, for example, make it as expensive to post one bottle of wine as it would be to ship a whole case of wine by courier. It is up to the individual person or business to decide for themselves which is their best postage option.

    UK Delivery Rates

    For those who ship many items, for instance over 200 items per month, opening a regular account with a courier may offer the most cost-effective solution. Discounts offered to account holders may provide significant savings in comparison to standard UK postage rates and there may also be other distinct advantages.

    For instance, you may be able to arrange a regular collection of your postal items and use integrated online software that makes it possible to add to the number of parcels you need collecting, even on the same day, up to the moment of collection. A further advantage which helps to reduce administration time and costs is the possibility to use the courier's online system for the generation of address labels or delivery reports.

    When you have a lot of posting to do, a quick comparison between UK postage rates and the costs involved in using a courier should make the choice of service much simpler.
