15,000 unrequired PO Box addresses removed from the Postcode Address File (PAF®)

We recently completed an exercise to establish which PO Box addresses are no longer required by customers. Customers were given the opportunity to review their PO Box address needs and notify Royal Mail of their intention to either continue having a PO Box address or cancel their service. As a result of this activity, approximately 15,000 unrequired PO Box addresses have been removed from PAF® since December 2018.

Please be aware that the number of changes to the PO Box addresses in this month’s PAF statistics, is due mainly to this exercise and is not a counting error.
