PostEurop reacts to the adoption of TRAN’s report on the Parcel Delivery Proposal

Today, members of the European Parliament committee on Transport and Tourism (TRAN) adopted their report on the proposed Regulation on cross-border parcel delivery.

Parcel delivery is the cornerstone of the fast-growing e-commerce industry, domestically and cross-border. European postal operators offer a wide range of delivery services with high quality and at affordable prices. Every year, we deliver 4 billion parcels ordered online or sent to friends and families across Europe.

Following the vote, Jean-Paul Forceville, Chairman of PostEurop commented:

"Today's TRAN vote recognizes the highly competitive nature of the parcel delivery market in Europe - domestically and cross border. Positive changes have been introduced, e.g. the TRAN committee has decided to delete the provision granting unconditional access to postal delivery networks for third party operators and leave it up to the market and commercial negotiations. However, PostEurop urges consistency and proportionality with respect to affordability checks. PostEurop now looks towards the European Parliament and the Estonian Presidency to ensure the future Regulation minimizes administrative burdens and reflects market conditions in the parcel delivery sector".
