Explanatory notes to draft market analysis decision on the postal sector


The Netherlands Authority for Consumers and Markets (ACM) is of the opinion that Dutch postal operator PostNL must regional postal operators access to its sorting and delivery network consisting of drop-off locations, sorting centers, and mail carriers.

As a result, businesses that send out mail for next-day delivery continue to have a choice as to what postal operator handles their mail. Thanks to competition in the postal market, these businesses benefit from lower prices with improved and customized service.
