The Norwegian parliament changes the postal law

In 2017, the Norwegian Ministry of Transportation and Communication (Samferdselsdepartementet) commissioned Copenhagen Economics to investigate the effects of reducing the requirements on delivery frequency on the postal market in Norway. The study considered carefully national structural factors (geographic and demographic), supply-side factors (network characteristics), as well as demand-side evolution (volume decline and user needs).

Based on the conclusions of the study, the Ministry proposed to change the postal law in Norway in April 2019. The key change is the reduction in delivery frequency from 5 to 2.5 days per week. The Norwegian parliament (Stortinget) voted in favour of the change on June 4th.
