Stakeholders are invited to a one-day workshop hosted by the European Commission. This will be an opportunity to see the final results of the study, 'Development of cross-border e-commerce through parcel delivery', and to see the first steps of the new study, 'User needs in the postal sector'.

The workshop provides an opportunity to learn and discuss:

  • how e-commerce and parcel markets are developing in Europe
  • challenges in the parcel delivery services sector, taking into account all stakeholders' perspectives on aspects such as competitiveness, sustainability and international issues
  • how to uncover changing user needs in the postal sector, and possible adaptations to present and future challenges, including the sustainability of universal service
  • how to analyse and evaluate the adequacy of the EU postal regulatory framework

Attendees will be able to exchange opinions on these important developments and share views on the way forward.

The workshop will take place from 10.00 - 15.30. Welcome coffee starts at 9.00 (all times CET).
