On 6 May 2015, the European Commission (EC) launched a public consultation on cross-border parcel delivery, seeking to compile input from interested parties on the main issues and possible areas of improvement for cross-border delivery services when sending packets and parcels across the European Union. The consultation closes on 29 July.
