Bruno Basalisco, Anna Möller Boivie and Mindaugas Cerpickis speak at the 25th Conference on Postal and Delivery Economics

Today, three of our Postal & Delivery experts, Bruno Basalisco, Anna Möller Boivie and Mindaugas Cerpickis, speak at the 25th Conference on Postal and Delivery Eco-nomics in Barcelona, Spain.

Bruno Basalisco will present a study on how tumbling letter volumes and changing demand characteristics for letter mail force postal market players to continuously innovate and restructure their business. In addition, the study outlines the policy requirements created by such developments as well as the main risks of regulatory interventions in declining and dynamic postal markets. We conclude that four universal principles can guide regulators’ decisions in a declining mail market.

Mindaugas Cerpickis will present a paper “Kill your darlings: when does sacrificing next-day delivery help USO sustainability?” which focuses on one of the strategies that postal operators pursue in order to mitigate the negative impact mail volume decline. In particular, this strategy pertains to significantly increasing next day delivery prices to (gradually) shift postal users’ demand from expensive (and costly) priority letter products to non-priority products. He presents our findings in light of the recent developments in several European countries.

In addition, Bruno Basalisco will chair a session on the Efficient Pricing in Declining Markets, while Anna Möller Boivie and Mindaugas Cerpickis will take part as discussants in several other topics related to the postal and delivery sector, such as cross-effects of parcel and post-delivery, accessibility to the postal network and others.

Invitation: Seminar about the new EU Damage Directive

Danish law firm Bruun & Hjejle and Copenhagen Economics are happy to co-host a seminar about the new EU Damage Directive. The seminar takes place 8 June at Bruun & Hjejle's premsies in Copenhagen.

Both Bruun & Hjejle and Copenhagen Economics experience an increasing interest in the possibility of claiming compensation for breaches of The Competition Act. During the past three years, we have been involved in more than ten cases with a total claim of more than DKK 5 billion.

We expect an increasing number of damage cases following the implementation of the new EU Damage Directive, which makes it easier for both Danish and foreign victims of anticompetitive conduct and cartel behavior to claim compensation.

At the seminar, we explain the new rules, describe how compensations are calculated, and share our experience from previous cases.

Please note that the seminar will be in Danish.
