PostEurop is the trade association representing Universal Service Providers (USPs) for post. As USPs, PostEurop’s members ensure everyone is connected and has access to postal services, enabling consumers and SMEs to send and receive letters and parcels wherever they are. This contributes to economic growth and social cohesion across the EU. As such, PostEurop shares the European Commission’s ambition to ensure fair and open markets in the platform economy.

In principle, PostEurop’s members welcome the European Commission’s proposed Digital Markets Act (DMA) and the new rules related to large and systemic online platforms, acting as gateways and evolving into broad digital ecosystems. The new rules should be drafted in order to benefit online shoppers and e-retailers across the EU, providing them with better choice in core platform services and in ancillary services.
