Final proposals to amend the NGPP definition
Royal Mail Wholesale has concluded its proposals to change the definition of the National Geographic Posting Profile (NGPP) upon which all National Access Agreements are based. Our final decisions are formed from the result of consulting and meeting with our customers and related trade associations whose views we value and have taken into consideration. The proposals are made in the context of harmonising Access charges for National postings with Zonal postings and remove the potential for any arbitrage. At the same time we are seeking to make the posting of mail through Royal Mail Wholesale cost effective and efficient, whilst providing customers with a "do nothing" option which will enable them to continue posting as before. The current economic climate and the overall sharp decline in the postal sector of the communications market make these objectives even more vital today.
