Utilise Royal Mail’s overseas services
All of Royal Mail’s overseas services are completely reliable and will keep your postage safe and secure for last minute delivery to Europe within 3-5 working days and worldwide within 5-7 working days. Royal Mail offer three international tracking and signature services, which guarantee speed and safety for your postage;
- International tracked – this service is perfect for sending valuable goods with five points of tracking after dispatch and an online confirmation upon delivery.
- International signed – your postage will be tracked thoroughly until it leaves the UK and will not be delivered without a signature.
- International tracked and signed – this combination service provides full beginning to end tracking coverage of your postage as well as signature upon delivery and an online confirmation sent straight to you.
Waste not with franking
Save time, cut costs and be mail-efficient with franking! It’s great that Royal Mail offer speedy, last minute postal services for your postage, however, on a tight deadline you need to prepare your postage quickly too. Frank your mail with speeds of up to 1,800 letters per hour (depending on the model), this is much more productive and time-efficient than applying stamps by hand – allow franking to lift the stress of preparing your mail on a tight deadline.
Go digital, choose Mailmark
Mailmark franking, if you are not already aware, generates a 2D barcode which speeds up the process of delivery, allows tracking coverage that you can monitor and adds another level of security to your mail. Discover more on the benefits of franking in the digital age in our blog.
