Join conversation on future of Royal Mail: Daily Focus launches Reader Survey | Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce

Information from Daily Focus – Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce:

Business leaders in Staffordshire are warning against potentially harmful cutbacks in the frequency of postal deliveries. 

Many firms operate on a seven-days-a-week basis and they rely on Royal Mail’s current levels of service, say the county’s Chambers of Commerce. 

The message comes in response to proposals for reform in the consultation document published by regulator Ofcom. 

Suggested options for change include reducing the number of days the Royal Mail delivers letters from six per week to five or even three. 

Ofcom’s report claims the postal service is “getting out of date” and action is needed to be taken. 

It says another option would be extending the number of days it takes for most letters to be delivered.
