ROYAL MAIL resumed some of its international delivery service on January 26.

The halt was the result of a cyber-attack more than two weeks earlier by a Russia-linked ransomware gang named Lockbit.

The Royal Mail have said however: “We have temporarily asked customers not to submit any new export parcels into the Royal Mail network until further notice.”

To add to their problems, the recent postal strike cost Royal Mail £200 million – more than €227 million – which the group’s owners International Distributions Services said had pushed it into a substantial operating loss

Royal Mail’s full year predictions of losses of between £350 and £450 million (€398 and €512 million) is based on no further strike action in its fourth quarter.  This also depends on the Communication Workers Union (CWU) accepting its “best and final” pay offer, it said.
