bpost adjusting domestic mail tariffs
Belgium’s bpost has announced that it will be adjusting its domestic mail tariffs next month.
Effective from 1 March, stamps for standardized mail items within Belgium will cost €0.84 when buying at least ten units. The price per unit will be € 0.87 when purchased individually.
Stamps for standardized mail items within Europe will cost €1.30 when buying at least five units and €1.36 per unit when bought individually.
The international tariff for sending mail items outside of Europe will be €1.52 when buying at least five units and €1.58 per unit when bought individually.
Tariffs across all domestic mail products will rise by around 4.7% on average in 2018.
In a statement issued on Friday (2 February), bpost said: “The impact on the postal spend per household remains very limited and is estimated at approximately €1.6 per household on an annual basis.”
bpost added that the new tariffs would place it “in the middle bracket of European mail operators, below the average price of a domestic stamp in the EU (€0.91)”.
