New postal regulator Postcomm has consulted supermarkets and grocery chains as it draws up plans for a mail delivery revolution. Postcomm said there had been widespread enthusiasm for proposed reforms in informal talks which took place before this week's consultation document was issued. Postcomm's proposals for effective competition in UK postal services suggests supermarkets and milk delivery companies could take on licences to deliver letters under £1. Changes which could be in place later this year will end the newly renamed Consignia's monopoly on the delivery of letters. New entrants could introduce their own franking systems and piggy back mail deliveries on existing delivery infrastructure, with the bonus of cutting their own post bills. A Postcomm spokesman said: "Theoretically Tesco could be delivering post nationwide by the end of the year." {{NEWS }}
