Postal and Regulatory Reform in Intermodal Competition

  • Christian Jaag
  • Helmut Dietl

This paper argues that transforming the postal business model goes hand in hand with a transformation in the definition of universal service obligation. Whilst postal operators need to fully embrace the unique competitive space created by electronic substitution, at the intersection between the physical and digital, regulatory frameworks also must be adapted towards a technology-neutral definition of universal service.
