Post Office reduces letter deliveries

Thu, 19 Sep 2019

Isle of Man Post Office will be reducing all-Island letter deliveries from six to five days a week.

The postal service have confirmed that due to decreased demand for the service, deliveries will operate from Monday to Friday effective from 21 October.

They say that they will continue to deliver parcels and time-guaranteed services, such as Special Delivery and tracked items six days a week, Monday to Saturday.

Chairman of IOMPO Julie Edge MHK said: "The introduction of five-day letter deliveries will enable IOMPO to generate a saving of approximately £500k pa, which will help to offset the declining letter mail income, while supporting our strategic aim of returning the business back to profitability."

"All other services to customers will remain unchanged and post offices will continue to operate their normal opening hours on a Saturday."
