Cross-border E-commerce


Results from Escher’s Future of Posts survey indicate that cross-border e-commerce will be a priority for postal operators over the coming months and years. Of the 129 respondents from 52 postal operators around the world who participated in the study, 87% plan to introduce strategies to deal with the increased international parcel volumes.
