Royal Mail Destroys Millions of Pieces of Undeliverable Mail a Year

How can Neopost help?

ROMFORD, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - March 24, 2011) - Royal Mail recently announced that it destroys on average 25 million letters, packets and parcels every year. This undelivered correspondence equates to 70,000 pieces per day, costing millions in postage. Royal Mail has destroyed 152 million pieces of mail which they could not deliver over the last six years, the majority being business mail.

Beyond postage costs, this undelivered mail means extra cost and damaged reputations for UK businesses. Business critical mail and transactional mail such as legal documents, cheques, invoices and statements go undelivered leading to delayed payments or reduced customer satisfaction impacting on costs, revenue and cashflow. Marketing mail doesn't get delivered, meaning missed opportunities and reduced campaign ROI. 

Royal Mail makes up to a million changes to its PAF (Postal Address File) every year. This means a company's mailing database will become out of date very quickly, creating unnecessary expense and inconvenience.

Neopost, the UK's number one mailroom supplier, offers a very simple and inexpensive address cleansing software solution. Neopost's address cleansing solution can easily and quickly update an address database so that it conforms to the latest Royal Mail PAF file, which increases mail deliverability and achieves the lowest postage rates available by accessing Royal Mail postal discounts saving between 12% and 32%.
