Royal Mail was the UK’s and the world’s first postal and courier system. It is the only delivery service offering a “one price goes anywhere” domestic mail service, six days a week, to more than 29 million UK addresses. Steady declines in the number of letters being sent have led Royal Mail to focus on the growing parcel trade thanks to e-commerce, and it has been trialling innovative delivery services such as zero-emission e-Trikes. Early this year, Royal Mail announced the rollout of 87 electric vehicles at one of its largest mail centres, in London, as part of its £34.5m Optimise Prime project, which links leading power, technology, fleet and transport companies.

Royal Mail’s service was uninterrupted during the COVID-19 outbreak; the business committed £25 to protective equipment and delivered the government’s advice on how to stay safe to around 30 million homes. To show their support for posties, residents were urged to give a big “thumbs up” to their local delivery person, from a safe distance. Prior to the pandemic, Royal Mail ran another in its series of advertisements linked to the James Bond franchise, this time featuring Blofeld’s fluffy white cat.
