The postal sector is one of the deregulated sectors where, in the public interest, countries through universal postal service providers ensure the realisation of a certain selection of postal services on the whole of their territory and for cost-oriented prices.
Regulatory demands require that postal service providers implement a cost model on the basis of which their cost-oriented prices are set, with this cost modelling ensuring that there is no cross-subsidization of commercial services. Should the universal postal service provider not cover the cost of the universal service with the provision of said service, the regulator can implement a mechanism of covering this difference in cost.
If you are a universal postal service provider or a postal market regulator, Vafer can help you by:
- implementing the appropriate cost modelling;
- harmonising your cost model with regulatory demands; and
- checking the compliance od your cost modelling with regulatory demands
