Royal Mail Fuel Surcharge to rise to 4% this January

Royal Mail are to increase the cost of deliveries for account customers. The underlying contract rates won’t change, but from the 28th of January 2019 the Royal Mail fuel surcharge will rise from 3% to 4%. The fuel surcharge is applied on the product price after any discounts or commissions, and before VAT

Fuel surcharges are a way for carriers to raise and lower prices outside of contract renewals as their fuel costs change, although generally fuel surcharges only ever seem to rise and never fall. Royal Mail remind customers that their fuel surcharge has remained static since the 31st of March 2014.

Royal Mail Fuel surcharges were introduced five years ago. Prior to April 2013 Royal Mail included these costs into the overall parcel price. This change, says Royal Mail, brought the postal service in line with other parcel delivery companies who already apply a fuel surcharge.

The company says that they have done their best to absorb changes in fuel prices and held off increasing their fuel surcharge for as long as possible, but are now in a position where they are forced to pass on some of their increased costs to business customers.

Our DOM told us there have been loads of returns coming through at the MCs this January. DOs won't see them though unless they deal with the return address.

Tracked returns are scanned on inwards, first under 'accepted' items, separated out then scanned again as a tracked return. It's one of the options available on the PDA and if selected you get a drop down box listing various companies you can choose from. You may not have bulk returns coming through your MC for delivery to a local postcode.
