Abstract

Postal markets are facing probably the biggest changes mainly caused by users switching to digital communications and by the rapidly growing e-commerce market. Consequently, postal markets are experiencing declining volumes of traditional mail and an increasing volume of parcels (Hearn, 2016). In order to meet the new user expectations, governments are trying to provide public services in a digitalized form (Gori & Parcu, 2020). At the same time, new entrants like Amazon, IKEA, Allegro and Tesco, are posing a challenge to traditional postal markets by directly delivering their products faster and more cheaply.
