Swedish e-commerce grows 17% from 2012 to 2013

Thursday 10 April 2014 | 09:38 CET | News
Swedish postal and telecoms regulator PTS said e-commerce is expanding markedly but the volume of letters sent by traditional mail is falling. According to its report 'Service and Competition 2014 – the Postal Market in Sweden', there was a 17 percent rise in electronic commerce from 2012 to 2013, compared with a 2 percent growth in the retail trade as a whole. This rise in e-commerce has led to an increase in the number of small packages sent by traditional mail, although PTS expects a growth in dispatches of larger packages and bigger letters, too.
