Royal Mail has expanded its Special Delivery Guaranteed product to enable account business customers in the UK to dispatch time-sensitive parcels until 7:00pm on Saturday and 4:00pm on Sunday, for delivery by 9:00am or 1:00pm on Monday.

The free weekend collection service is available to customers in England and Wales posting a minimum of 50 items. Consignments can be made up of Royal Mail Tracked, Royal Mail International and Special Delivery Guaranteed products.

The new weekend collections service for account business customers is the latest in a program of enhancements to support online retailers by making Royal Mail’s services more accessible, convenient and flexible.

Nick Landon, managing director, Royal Mail Parcels, said, “This latest enhancement to our service is yet another example of how Royal Mail is providing innovative service enhancements that help online retailers meet their customers’ needs. Royal Mail has been safely delivering high value and urgent items for UK consumers and businesses for over 500 years. Special Delivery Guaranteed is powered by a secure network within the wider Royal Mail network offering additional protection behind the scenes so that parcels and letters arrive on time, safely and securely.”
