  • Striving to reduce costs while maintaining quality of service

  • Speed and frequency of letter delivery

  • Flexible delivery models

  • Volume declines, automation, and head count

  • Limitations on work hours, and part time work

  • Combining letters with parcels for delivery

  • Cases where it’s impossible or not necessary to combine letter and parcel delivery

  • Delivery vehicles

  • Increasing productivity in a large workforce

  • Redeploying staff internally and outside the company - and union engagement

  • Technology and productivity

  • AI and machine learning

  • Changing delivery speed

  • Introducing new services while trying to reduce costs

  • What do customers really want from a letter delivery service - certainty or price?
