The Post Office and Royal Mail have shaken hands on a new long-term commercial agreement.

The deal, which runs until March 2032, follows on from the pair’s original 2012 agreement, which was set up when the two businesses went their separate ways.

It secures long-term access for Royal Mail to the Post Office network and provides the PO with the ability to continue to sell and accept Royal Mail’s range of postal products.

Post Office boss Nick Read said the deal would benefit both “postmasters and customers”.
