The postal sector is being forced to evolve due to the increasing role played by information and communication technologies (ICTs) and the internet. FSR Transport aims to contribute to the on-going analysis of the challenges faced by the postal and delivery sector to be competitive and to cope with new demands from both customers and other stakeholders.
Florence Postal Forums
The postal and delivery services sector is facing challenges that are similar to those of all other network industries. The Florence Postal Forums are directed at discussing the most recent developments and possible regulatory evolution in the sector, such as the Universal Service Obligation, the reform of the Public Service Obligation directive, the new role of e-commerce and its growth.
The Florence Postal Forums serve as a basis for the publication of the Postal Industry Regulation Newsletter by the Chair Management of Network Industry (EPFL). Papers from the FSR Transport workshops and all presentations from the events are available online.
Over the years, stakeholders and administrators as well as knowledgeable academics have attended the Florence Postal Forums to share their experiences. The increasing role of ICT has brought experts from this sector to join the Forums, broadening the scope of discussion and enriching it with their expertise ( click here to download the full list of speakers ).
