New study: Dynamic postal markets call for careful consideration of future regulation

In the light of the ongoing evaluation of the EU Postal Services Directive, a relevant question for many industry stakeholders is whether the current market reality warrants more sector-specific regulation on top of the existing regulatory framework.

In this new study, we investigate this question by first looking at the basic economic principles for when and how to regulate postal and delivery markets. We thereafter present new empirical evidence regarding the competitive landscape of e-commerce delivery markets in Europe.

Based on our analysis, we find that:

  • The dynamic characteristics of postal and delivery markets mean that careful consideration is needed of whether there is any need for additional regulatory remedies and, if so, what remedies would be appropriate.
  • Choice and innovation in EU postal and delivery markets seem to eliminate the need for more regulation of parcel delivery services related to ecommerce purchases.
  • In terms of the evaluation of the Postal Services Directive in the EU, policymakers should consider carefully what market failures the regulation aims to address and avoid overlaps and conflicts with other regulatory frameworks.

Copenhagen Economics support AKOS in designing their auction rules

Last week, the Slovenian telecommunications regulator AKOS published their Information Memorandum for the allocation of multiple 4G/5G spectrum bands (i.e. 700 MHz, 1400 MHz, 2100 MHz, 2300 MHz, 3600 MHz and 26 GHz bands) by auction.

Our Tender & Auction Support team supported AKOS together with Innovative Auctions in designing the auction rules to achieve AKOS’ policy objectives: ensuring efficiency, safeguarding competition and achieving market prices.

We have proposed the eSMRA (enhanced simultaneous multiple round ascending) auction format with customised rules.

The unofficial English translation of AKOS’ Information Memorandum can be found here
