The COST 314 Action set itself the objective of studying the development of express delivery services and the associated political questions on the basis of an international cooperative research effort. Those involved in this study represent the states which were signatories to the declaration of intent launching the project: Greece, Spain, France, Finland, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Slovenia, Sweden and Switzerland.

The present report provides a final account of the two phases of the project. The first part summarises the economic approach to express delivery services in Europe, underlining the general trends and special features of the countries studied. The second part expounds the political approach. The third one focuses itself on the attitude of the European Commission and the international association.
