Selective price reductions and increases

As of 1 January 2016, Swiss Post will adapt individual services and prices for private and business customers. Individual items sent abroad via large and maxi-letter/MiniPac International will become up to two francs cheaper. It is making this adjustment in response to the growing demand for small goods shipping. Owing to increased costs in destination countries, the prices for standard letters of up to 20 grams will be increased by 10 centimes. The majority of postal services and prices, including prices for domestic A and B Mail letters of up to 50 grams, as well as domestic parcel prices, will remain unchanged next year.
