Ecommerce Europe moving ahead on harmonised standards for cross border labels

The 41st European Postal Standardization Plenary meeting, which took place in Warsaw last Friday (2 December) decided that the final vote on the technical specification for Interfaces for cross-border parcels will be launched in January 2017. Ecommerce Europe chaired the work to harmonize postal and supply chain management standards to enable one item label for the delivery of merchandise to end customers.

“Cross-border parcel delivery is still one of the top-3 most difficult challenges for online merchants”, said Walter Trezek, Co-chair of the e-Logistics Working Group of Ecommerce Europe, who chaired the work successfully concluded at the Plenary of last week. “One of the main causes of difficulties in parcel delivery was closed standards leading to proprietary networks, resulting in unfavorable market conditions for online merchants.”

In a statement issued on Monday (5 December), Ecommerce Europe said that the launch of the final vote “proves that its strategy to actively engage in shaping necessary market fundamentals was right”.
