2 This brochure provides information on the support postal operators could offer distance selling companies wishing to enter new markets across Europe. It results from the will to promote vertical integration and cross-border mentoring and has been developed jointly by PostEurop s Customer Relations Working Group and EMOTA. The initiative was taken following a recent study of EMOTA amongst companies to identify barriers these companies perceive when entering new markets. Although the European Single Market functions since 1 January 1993 still many barriers remain, not only because of different languages and consumer behaviours, but also because of different legal and regulatory backgrounds. Distance selling companies identified the need to facilitate market entry with the aid of a reliable partner or consultant. This partner could be the local postal operator. PostEurop and EMOTA have developed two complementary ideas to address this need: An agency concept for full support of the total chain of activities A database of country-specific information relevant for distance selling companies. This brochure presents general ideas for mutual product and service development by the postal operators and the distance selling companies. Ten services and/or products have been identified and detailed. The terms and conditions for the provision of each product/service will be determined after negotiation and approval between the postal operator and the distance selling company. The postal operator can provide the services or act as intermediate or broker. It is hoped that this framework will reduce barriers throughout the European Single Market for both distance selling companies seeking new markets and postal operators seeking new clients. In the brochure, the term agency refers either to the network of postal operators providing their products/services or to the local operator selected by the distance selling company to provide a specific product/service.

3 PostEurop is the Association of European Postal Operators. With 43 Members, PostEurop embraces all the diversity and complexity of the European postal environment. PostEurop Members employ some 2.1 million people worldwide, manage a network of over 200,000 counters which reach out to 800 million customers, and account for 30-40% of the world s mail traffic. In 2005, PostEurop adopted an ambitious strategy to face the rapidly evolving postal environment. This strategy aims at transforming PostEurop into a lead organisation promoting the interests of the European postal industry. It strives to promote and develop a sustainable and competitive postal communications market accessible to all, through increased operational and network quality and greater focus on customer satisfaction. It promotes cooperation and innovation with an emphasis on common needs. EMOTA is the European Distance Selling Trade Association. EMOTA comprises 22 national associations from 21 countries, 18 EU Member countries, as well as Norway, Russia and Switzerland. EMOTA member associations represent more than 2,000 companies with a total turnover of 67.7 billion in Sales are made using a wide range of communication means such as catalogues, mailings and other printed media, telephone, TV, mobile phone, Internet, etc. EMOTA s most important challenge is overcoming barriers to Europe s Single Market such as taxation (VAT), distribution (postal services), and international payment. Equally important is the patchwork of legislation and implementation and interpretation of European Directives by EU Member States. As a result, cross-border transactions represent no more than 4% of total distance selling sales.

4 Product features In order to enable distance selling companies to offer their products in the language of a foreign country, the agency suggests or provides translation services.
