Non-universal postal services

Addressed items that do not fall within the weight limits of the universal service (2 kg for letters, direct mail, newspapers and periodicals - 10 kg for postal parcels and 20 kg for parcels coming from other Member States) are considered to be non-universal postal items.

Since the entry into force of the Act of 26 January 2018 on postal services, the delivery of bulk parcels is excluded from the universal service.

Regardless of the weight of the items, postal services and value-added postal items, such as the express services are also excluded from the universal service.
