Nick Landon, Managing Director, Royal Mail Parcels, told us: “I am very pleased to announce that we are extending the reach of some of our premium international services to support UK online retailers selling overseas. Our research shows that two thirds (65 per cent) of UK SME online retailers are aiming to increase international sales in 2015. Royal Mail is continuing to respond to the needs of our customers and help them as they seek to attract sales from international markets.”
