Future of the Postal Sector Study

This study has been commissioned by the European Commission (DG GROW) and is conducted by a consortium comprising RPA and RAND Europe.

The objective of this study is to define several future scenarios for the development of the European postal sector over the next 10-20 years. It aims to evaluate the economic, social and environmental implications of the scenarios. This will involve investigating potential issues, challenges and market failures that could arise, mapping the potential interventions to mitigate the identified issues and developing a methodology for the estimating the potential impacts of changes to key variables on the postal sector.
