Abstract

In common with many postal operators around the world, Adpostal - the state-owned operator in Colombia and bearer of the Universal Service Obligation - is required to provide a set of basic postal services throughout the country. A reserved area is also established by law giving Adpostal a monopoly over the collection and delivery of traditional mail products below 2 Kg. In practice, mail services are also provided by operators that are licensed to offer special mail services (e.g. courier services) and operators that do not have a licence at all. Adpostal therefore operates in a market which has effectively been liberalised and it currently has approximately 26% market share by value.
