And, with sincere gratitude, many of us remember penning a letter to Grandma and Granddad, thanking them for that special birthday present.

Among European operators, Poste Italiane, Swiss Post, Deutsche Post DHL (Germany), and Austrian Post, in particular, have increased their share of non-core business.
