Slow down in Belgian snail mail
13 September 2004
BRUSSELS – The volume of mail sent in Belgium has dropped by 200 million units over the last two years, it emerged on Monday.
The drastic fall in mail delivery is a result of the recent economic situation and the rise in emails and text messages, reported De Standaard and Het Volk.
Classical mail delivery accounts for 81 percent of postal service business.
The financial blow to the postal service has been softened by a rise in prices.
