Royal Mail’s custom load-carrying bicycles have been a popular feature since 1971. Through the charity Re*Cycle, the old bicycles used for custom load-carrying have been shipped to Africa between 2000 and 2004. A push-trolley and a van replaced the load-carrying bicycles later in 2009, but bicycles were still used on rural routes during that period.
Delivery vehicles can now be tracked in real-time using the fleet tracking system. From 1927 until 2003, Royal Mail operated the London Post Office Railway, a network of driverless trains running on a private underground track.
In addition to using roads, the Royal Mail also relies on trains, ships, and some aircraft, with an air hub at East Midlands Airport. Titan Airways operated a dedicated night mail flight for Royal Mail between East Midlands Airport and Bournemouth Airport as well as between Exeter International Airport and London Stansted Airport. The Royal Mail announced in June 2013 that it would extend Titan Airways’ contract to operate night flights from Stansted Airport, from January 2014 to January 2017, adding new routes to Edinburgh and Belfast using three Boeing 737s. As part of the contract, the British Aerospace 146-200QC (Quick Change) aircraft were to be replaced with a standard Boeing 737 fleet, and the type was withdrawn by Titan Airways in November 2013.
A drone will be used to deliver mail between the UK mainland and St Mary’s airport in Scilly Isles, Royal Mail announced in 2021. Windracers Limited manufactures the twin-engine vehicle in the UK, which is capable of carrying 100 kg, which is the same weight as a typical delivery round.
The aircraft is capable of flying in poor weather conditions, including fog, and will be out of sight of operators for the 70-mile flight. Parcels will be transported between the islands in the archipelago using vertical takeoff and landing drones. When a package was sent to a remote lighthouse on Scotland’s Isle of Mull, Royal Mail sent its first parcel using a drone in December 2020.
