Commission presents roadmap for completing the single market for parcel delivery


Christmas season is a time when more people than usual
are sending parcels, and the delivery market is being put to the test.

The
Commission has today adopted a communication on completing the single market
for parcel delivery to boost e-commerce in the EU, and to ensure that e-retailers
and consumers have access to affordable and high-quality parcel delivery
services. Internal Market and Services Commissioner Michel Barnier said:
"The e-commerce driven parcel delivery market is characterised by rapid
growth and innovation, but also by signs of some market failures, particularly
in the area of cross-border delivery. Further action is required to provide
e-retailers and consumers with high-quality, accessible and affordable parcel
delivery services, taking due account of the needs of SMEs and of less-advanced
or accessible regions. The industry is leading the effort, but we expect
results soon and will follow up so that commitments are met."
