PostEurop reacts to the adoption of TRAN’s report on the Parcel Delivery Proposal

PostEurop has responded to the news that members of the European Parliament committee on Transport and Tourism (TRAN) have voted to adopt the report on the proposed Regulation on cross-border parcel delivery. In a statement sent to Post&Parcel, Jean-Paul Forceville, Chairman of PostEurop, said: “Today’s TRAN vote recognizes the highly competitive nature of the parcel delivery market in Europe – domestically and cross border.

“Positive changes have been introduced, e.g. the TRAN committee has decided to delete the provision granting unconditional access to postal delivery networks for third party operators and leave it up to the market and commercial negotiations.

“However, PostEurop urges consistency and proportionality with respect to affordability checks. PostEurop now looks towards the European Parliament and the Estonian Presidency to ensure the future Regulation minimizes administrative burdens and reflects market conditions in the parcel delivery sector”.
