UK Postage

UK Postage. In the UK, postal services are provided by mainly two companies. They dominate the market and the company names are The Royal Mail and The Post Office Ltd. They both provide services to people in the UK so they can send and receive letters / parcels, whether it be in the UK or to another country.
