Description

The Ordinary Letter scheme is ideal for ordinary correspondence. Use it to send a letter to your friends or business partners. Just drop the letter in a mail box or at a post office counter and we will deliver it to the addressee’s letter box, P.O.Box, or delivery box.

Starting from 1 February 2020, European delivery standards will newly apply to Ordinary Letter services. The novel, two-speed delivery system allows you to choose one of two delivery speeds and prices.
