The Role of the Postal and Delivery Sector in a Digital Age

Michael A. Crew, Timothy J. Brennan

This volume, the result of the 21st Conference on Postal and Delivery Economics (Ireland, 2013), describes the continuing problem of the decline of the postal sector in the face of electronic competition and offers strategies for the survival of mail services in a digital age.

The 25 original papers in this collection provide econometric analyses on the changing demand and elasticity of mail in the modern era. Proposed solutions to declining interest in the postal sector include closer links between mail services and the digital sphere, expansion of the parcel sector, changes to the universal service obligation, legal reform and regulatory change.

Professors and students of regulatory economics will have an interest in this book, as will managers and other decision-makers working within the postal sector.

‘A seminal body of impressive scholarship, The Role of the Postal and Delivery Sector in a Digital Age is as informed and informative as it is thoughtful, and thought-provoking, making it very highly recommended reading for governmental policy makers, and a critically important addition to academic library reference collections.’ – Midwest Book Review
