FINAL MILE DELIVERY CHARGE

26 Mar 2007, 12:53

Royal Mail could be forced by the industry regulator to cut the price of delivering rivals' letters for the 'final mile' - a move it claims could be crippling.


At present, Royal Mail charges private competitors 13p a letter to deliver them in the final mile.

Typically, private companies collect mail from large business customers, sort it and take it to Royal Mail sorting offices nearest the postal address for delivery.

But TNT Post, Royal Mail's biggest competitor, has appealed to Postcomm to force Royal Mail to cut its charges because it says they are so high that competitors are being 'squeezed out of the market'.

Postcon wrote:The regulator is examining requests from both TNT and Royal Mail to adjust the margin between the price Royal Mail charges its customers for bulk mail products and the amount Royal Mail charges other operators for access to its network and delivery of mail over the ‘final mile’. Royal Mail is seeking to reduce the margin between ‘access’ prices and its retail prices, while TNT is seeking to increase this difference.
