Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


From 1992 to 1995, Finland, France, Ireland, Italy, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the Netherlands and the European Commission made on analysis of the development of express delivery services in Europe. After an assessment of the situation and trends in Europe, key strategic and political issues affecting the future development of the sector has been identified. The report concludes that express delivery services represent an innovative segment of the freight market with a steady growth and that the technical advances, productivity improvements and commercial initiatives in this segment are tending to spill over into other transport sectors. The report is of use for all those who wish a better knowledge of express delivery services, and those who may draw lessons for other freight transport segment.
