Royal Mail takes on Amazon with Sunday parcel deliveries Business

Royal Mail will launch Sunday parcel deliveries nationwide for the first time in its 500-year history in a bid to take on Amazon.

Packages will be delivered nationwide seven days a week starting next month, as the postal service responds to a surge in online shopping during the pandemic.

The Sunday parcel service will be made available to merchants so that customers can specifically request delivery on the last day of the week.

Nick Landon of Royal Mail said: “For the first time our postal workers will be doing the same thing seven days a week. The past year has reset so many customer expectations and the desire for even more convenient and frequent parcel deliveries is certainly one of them. “
