Revenue and profitability were affected by strike action and adverse economic climate in 2022.

Following partial recovery of letter mail volumes in the prior year, Royal Mail reported a drop in addressed letter volumes (of 9%), advertising mail volumes (of 8%) and international import and export letters in 2022.
