International Bulk Mail Service

Posting large quantities of mail abroad?

We offer an international bulk discount service for customers sending high volumes of mail to foreign destinations. You can avail of rates as low as €0.81c for items to the UK and €0.77c to the USA.

How does it work?

Sending a lot of mail to different addresses or dispatching your mail to a single address? We have a range of services offering you the speed and flexibility to match your international mailing requirements.

Step by step

Decide which service meets your needs:

  • Are you sending a lot of mail to different addresses abroad? The ideal service is the IBMS.
  • Are you sending a large volume of non-commercial printed matter to one address abroad? This service is the M-Bag.

Both services offer you a priority air mail service.

IBMS

    IBMS allows you to send large volumes of mail to all international destinations. This mail is treated as priority mail in the destination country.

    The mail is conveyed by air and treated as first class mail in the destination country.
