With new postage tariffs released for both Royal Mail and Parcelforce Worldwide earlier this year, working with the latest franking rates and doing away with the old could save you money. For organisations with Mailmark devices accessing the new rates is as easy as downloading the latest updates to your digital franking machine, and better yet, it could save you up to 33% on standard stamp prices.
Still Using the Old Rates? Stop!
One of the many benefits of investing in digital franking technology and mailroom equipment is to unlock substantial postal savings. Failing to download the latest Royal Mail products, services and rates direct to your machine could see you miss out significantly on franking savings.
Avoid Royal Mail Surcharges
Underpayment on franked mail will leave your business liable to surcharges as well as compulsory administration fees. Your mail will still be delivered within the usual timeframe, and not returned back to you, but your unique PB Die or license number will be noted and charges applied directly to your franking machine.
Without the right technology and most up-to-date postage tariff rates, surcharges can be easily incurred. The incorrect sizing of mail, use of the wrong date and improper classification of its final destination (i.e. when international letters are incorrectly franked at UK rates) can all produce surcharges.
