Study ''Comparisons of prices of universal postal service providers in the European Union in 2009''


This study conducts a systematic and current comparison of a wide range of services provided within the scope of the universal service by the respective operators of the Member States of the European Union.

From the analysis of the prices of services, it is evident that in Portugal the prices of national parcels up to 2kg and of national priority mail up to 20g were maintained, while the prices for other services increased, although to a lesser extent than the average prices of services in the EU. Thus, there was an overall slight improvement in the position of prices in Portugal compared to other EU countries.
