PRESS RELEASE
Paris, 16 November 2012
After 18 months of stability, the price of mail services will increase
on 1 January by an average of 2.8%
On 1 January 2013, after 18 months of stability, the price of mail
services will increase by an average of 2.8%, i.e. below the rate of
inflation, estimated by INSEE at 3% over the same period.
This price increase will enable to maintain the high level of public
service quality in conditions that will be specified in the next Public
Service Agreement.
It will also contribute to maintaining the overall balance of La Poste
key factors as well as its social model.
Within this framework, the savings proposed by Green mail will
increase from 3 to 5 cents per letter, i.e. the priority stamp price will
increase from €0.60 to €0.63, but Green mail will only increase by
one cent to €0.58.
La Poste launched Green mail one year ago. Delivered in 48 hours,
Green mail is more economical and environmentally friendly since it
is not transported by plane (except to Corsica and French overseas
departments, of course). It was designed to reduce CO2 emissions by
30% compared with Priority mail.
Green mail meets a need – with already more than 50 million pieces
of green mail delivered each month by mail carriers.

in France. La Poste delivers mail 6 days a week in one of the largest
countries in Europe.
For the large mail senders, industrial mail prices will increase by
1.8%. This moderate increase will follow the policy of lowering mail
prices in constant euros for major Mail customers.
The prices for “Destineo esprit libre”, preferred by SMEs, will only
increase by 1.5% to make them more competitive in a difficult
economic environment. The prices for “Destineo utilité publique”, an
offering for officially approved associations and foundations to make
themselves known, will not increase.
These pricing evolutions for La Poste universal mail services are
within the multi-year framework of the price cap set on 6 November
by ARCEP (Autorité de régulation des communications électroniques
et des postes - the French regulator of the electronic communications
and postal sectors).
