In a letter to the Lower House, the minister says he is convinced of the necessity to take further measures in order to secure the cost-effectiveness and affordability of the USO. PostNL is confident that the eventual measures will lead to a remunerative USO obligation for PostNL.
The minister informed the Lower House that he is considering adjustments to the USO-obligation and the rate regulation. Minister Kamp has announced that he will provide a further explanation of the complete package of measures in his vision on the future of the postal market in early May.
