The CNMC will be looking at:
- The discounts that Correos applies to large clients, such as companies and public administrations, for their mass shipments are well below their costs.
- The prices paid by private customers for the national blue package (up to 20 kg) and for the package bound for Europe are above the average of other countries.

Among others, they are affordable, transparent, non-discriminatory, and have been calculated taking into account the actual costs of the service.
