EU consults on cross-border delivery

The European Commission has launched a consultation on delivery across borders, as part of its work on creating a digital single market.

The digital single market aims to “tear down regulatory walls and finally move from 28 national markets to a single one”.

Earlier this month the European Commission announced 16 actions which would help create a digital single market, and among these was the need for more efficient and affordable parcel delivery.

The consultation is open to retailers, customers and delivery companies, and will look at what can be done to improve cross-border delivery services when sending packets and parcels across the European Union.

The deadline for contributions to the consultation is 29th July.
