The Post explains the decline in parcel deliveries with depressed consumer sentiment since the Ukraine war, according to a statement on Tuesday. In 2022, global supply bottlenecks as a result of the corona pandemic would also have meant that many retailers were unable to order their goods with delays or at all.

While the number of parcels delivered has recently been rising annually, a downward trend has been noticeable in the letters delivered for some time. In the last ten years, the volume of letters has fallen by around a third, according to the statement.
