Further to a recent review of our APC services including Northern Ireland following the recent Brexit changes, AB postcodes and PUR’s we are writing to advise of the following changes which will come into effect from the 1st of April 2021: –
APC will be consolidating the AB postcodes currently in 2 zones into 1. All AB post codes will fall into the Scottish Highland region.
The input rates for both 2 way and 3 way PUR’s will be increased by £1.50 on top of your relevant tariff.
Services to Northern Ireland
Following Brexit, the additional requirements for Northern Ireland consignments and a subsequent review of the service offering, APC will be implementing the following changes: –
- APC will be combining both of the Northern Ireland zones into one to simplify our service offering.
- BT1-17 will be moving to the BT18 price zone.
- Due to the additional handling and administration costs, we are increasing the base rate by £3 on top of your current pricing for this area and the additional kilo rate by 62p.*
- Due to demand, we will be introducing an NC offering on the ROAD service.
Considering the additional handling and administration costs, we are increasing the base rate by £4.80 on top of your current pricing for this area and the additional kilo rate by 30p.*
*If costs rise further in the coming months due to the Brexit changes and requirements, we may need to review the input charges again further, we will of course keep you updated.
The changes as detailed in the communication will be effective from the 1st April 2021
