This year we are organising the 25th annual Conference on Postal and Delivery Economics, the first without both Prof. Paul Kleindorfer and Prof. Michael A. Crew, founding fathers of the event.
Since the first conference was organized in July 1990, a total of 3800 participants have had the opportunity to discuss evolving trends in the postal and delivery economics sector.

The conferences have brought together academics, industry researchers, consultants, and regulators to tackle economic issues that have policy implications. The goal is to have stakeholders work together towards improving market efficiency while maintaining universal service. Sessions focus on particular issues. Presenters explain their research; discussants evaluate the research and offer suggestions, and other participants ask questions. The give-and-take is collegial as opposed to a formal debate.

The Conference on Postal and Delivery Economics is a testament to the evolution in the postal and delivery sector over the last twenty-five years: from high letter volumes to a progressive increase of parcel delivery; from the start of the liberalisation process to the disruptive impact of digitalization and the Internet; from sector-specific activities to new business differentiation. At the same time, the Universal Service Obligation was and still is a central element of the regulatory, policy and economic debate.

We would like to thank all the supporting organisations and participants who were and are essential builders of the strength and success of the Conference.

The postal and delivery sector is still evolving and this Conference will continue to document these changes by keeping its strength and its prestige in honour of the inestimable contributions Prof. Kleindorfer and Prof. A. Crew have made to the postal and delivery economics community as a whole.

The Florence School of Regulation at the European University Institute and the Center for Research in Regulated Industries at Rutgers Business School will continue their collaboration with the aim of keeping this Conference the leading constructive and forward looking event in the sector.
