Parcel delivery options essential for online retailers
New research by Royal Mail and Parcelforce has revealed that flexibility and choice of delivery options is expected by on-line customers.

The survey reveals a gap between what shoppers want and the experience some online retailers provide. Most notably, 52 per cent of online retailers fail to meet the most common best practice guidelines for courier service delivery..

With the online retail market forecast to be worth an estimated £56bn in 2010 , Royal Mail and Parcelforce research suggests that online retailers lost £2.7bn in revenues in 2009 as a result of customers abandoning their shopping carts due to issues surrounding delivery.

Royal Mail introduces evening opening of more than 200 delivery offices

Royal Mail is extending the opening times of more than 200 of its busiest delivery offices. This will make it easier for people who are not at home to receive a delivery.

The offices will be open until 8pm on Wednesday evenings and 2pm on Saturdays.

More than half of the UK population now shops on-line. Mike Brown, Royal Mail's Fulfilment Director, said: "The majority of items ordered online are delivered first time but this investment by Royal Mail will help people who are not at home during the day to receive their item in cases where it is too big to go through the letterbox or needs a signature."
