Postage Rates to USA and 'Rest of the World' - July 2020
As of 1st July 2020, Royal Mail will be introducing a 'Temporary Air Carrier Supplement', which as we understand it will apply to all parcel sent via Royal Mail to the United States, and all other non-EU countries. In effect this will mean an increase in shipping charges to all non-EU destinations.
As we understand it, this will increase prices of parcels to the USA by £4.46 per kilo, and to all other non-EU destinations by £3.92 per kilo.
We are looking into ways of trying to absorb some of this cost to pass onto our customers, however as the information available from Royal Mail is as-yet unclear, we are unsure of if, or how this might be possible. Prices for shipping will increase as of 1st July, but we are unsure exactly by how much at the moment.
We also hope that the supplement will live up to it's name of 'Temporary', however this remains to be seen.
