The postal and logistics sector is considered the lifeblood of the e-commerce industry. Postal operators and couriers are the key actors delivering tangible goods to consumers, both locally, regionally and internationally. Thus, discussions on the postal sector tend to have significant implications for e-commerce traders. These range from those on reducing costs to cross-border parcel delivery and price transparency to the handling of low value consignments. The European Union is currently undertaking studies on the European parcel delivery market. EMOTA is working with its postal operators and express couriers to ensure our active involvement in this process.
