Royal Mail is an international business that provides postal and delivery services across our extensive networks. Our purpose is to connect customers, companies, and countries, and as the UK’s sole designated Universal Service Provider, Royal Mail delivers a ‘one-price-goes-anywhere’ service on a range of letters and parcels to over 31 million addresses across the UK, six days a week.
As one of the oldest organizations in the world, Royal Mail Group can trace its origins back over 500 years to 1516. Royal Mail and its forerunner organizations are responsible for a number of global firsts, ranging from the Penny Black stamp to the world’s first ‘one-price-goes-anywhere’ Universal Service. That proud tradition of innovation continues today as we introduce new technology and digital services and expand our services at home and abroad.
We are taking decisive steps to help tackle the global climate emergency and prepare our business for a low-carbon future. Steps to Zero, our new environmental strategy, recognizes the urgency of addressing climate change on our journey to Net Zero by 2040. We have the UK’s largest electric fleet of any major UK parcel operator, with around 1,600 electric vans in service today and 5,500 expected by spring 2023. In addition, our 90,000 posties walk over a billion steps each day, delivering to over 31 million addresses.
