The Royal Mail ‘small parcel’ regulations originally came into force on 1st April 2013. These stated that the maximum external dimensions of a box must be 450mm x 350mm x 80mm, or alternatively 350mm x 250mm x 160mm, for the box to qualify as a small parcel. Both these sizes are therefore held in stock. A further change was made on 1st October 2014, in which these sizes were combined, and the new regulation states that the maximum size of a box can be 450mm x 350mm x 160mm to qualify as a small parcel. This size is also held in stock. An exception to this rule is ‘cube boxes’ as long as they are less than 160mm x 160mm x 160mm. All Wowpak Royal Mail small parcel boxes qualify as ‘small parcels’ when sent using the royal mail service, and have been manufactured to the specific maximum sizes allowed under their regulations.
