what we charge for del DSA stuff is more or less set by the Regulator. This is because as we are practically the only one offering delivery services nationwide . The regulator thinks we would abuse our position on prices because of that

The DSA parcels at my mail centre are split 75/25 between direct sleeves / direct bags and mixed sleeves.
Last year it was it more like 20/80

We do generate a bit in missorts - these pay a steep charge per parcel.

Our letters business could be profitable. There is no enthusiasm for letters from Royal Mail not because companies are now using the internet and letter volumes are down but mainly because Royal Mail don't have the full control of the letters business they had years ago when it was a monopoly. The bulk of our letters are now from downstream access as these numerous growing private companies take our profits and yet all they do is collect mail and drop it off at our door! These DSA providers don't provide anything useful to the public but are simply a drain on our future. These profits are our profits.
But there is still only one main Royal Mail network and one route where your mail is going to get delivered.

Its about time we were able to charge these blood sucking DSA companies the full market rate for the service we provide them. I would rather Royal Mail put this to OfCom rather than looking at reducing the USO service that we provide.

Totally agree with the above. Royal Mail, if not already, should be looking at ensuring that we are not being underpaid for ensuring profits at other companies. Similar goes with the small "Chinese packets" which can number a fair few within a days delivery.
