José María Rodríguez of Frontier (Europe) today presented a paper at the 23rd Conference on Postal and Delivery Economics in Athens, organised by the Center For Research In Regulated Industries of the Rutgers Business School.
The paper,co-authored by Frontier’s George Houpis, Isabelle Carslake and Petra Valickova, considers the performance of the EU telecommunications framework compared with that for post in order to assess implications for the regulation of the postal sector. The paper highlights that liberalisation in telecoms has led to more market entry than has occurred in the postal sector, but also notes the very different priorities and market dynamics across the two sectors. This suggests that understanding the link between industry characteristics and regulatory policy is the key to drawing any implications from telecoms for the postal sector.
Frontier (Europe) regularly advices postal operators and regulators on the economic and regulatory aspects of the postal industry.
