Postcomm reviews Royal Mail application to extend Pricing in Proportion to 'Packetpost Returns' PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 20 February 2007

Postcomm, the independent regulator for postal services, is seeking views on Royal mail’s application to extend its Pricing in Proportion (PiP) framework to Packetpost Returns.

Packetpost Returns is a service that allows packets to be returned from customers with the postage cost being borne by the original sender.

Currently the price per item paid by the original sender is based on the average weight of the mail returned. Royal Mail advised Postcomm that Packetpost Returns was overlooked when it made its original PiP application in August 2003, and proposes that an item returned through this service should be treated and charged as a packet under its Pricing in Proportion framework.

Royal Mail has also requested that Packetpost Returns, consistent with the greater alignment of these prices to those of normal Packetpost, should be included in the same controlled services group as Packetpost .

In order to fully inform its final decision, Postcomm seeks views from all interested parties on Royal Mail’s proposals.
