PostEurop appreciates the comprehensive work done by the Commission in the Evaluation report on the Postal Services Directive (PSD)1, which was also discussed with Commissioner Mr. Thierry Breton during the meeting held in November 2021 with CEOs from twenty EU designated postal operators.

On the Cross-border Parcel Delivery Regulation Evaluation Report2, PostEurop mostly agrees with the conclusions, and would only like to underline, as stated by the EC, that there is a fierce competition in the parcel market and that prices offered to consumers are affordable. Therefore, there is no need to amend the Regulation or further regulate the subject.

Regarding the PSD Evaluation Report (the “Report”), there are some key topics on which postal operators do not necessarily share the EC views. Thus, the document will explain and further illustrate the views of PostEurop members.
