    Investing in the future of jobs and skills: Post - Executive summary

    The post sector comprises postal services (‘national post activities’) and courier activities. It includes activities such as pickup, transport and delivery of letters and parcels as well as the use of the universal service infrastructure (including retail locations, sorting and processing facilities) and carrier routes to deliver the mail. An important difference exists between companies with a universal service obligation for specific mail items such as letters and other companies with no such obligation. A report is available.
