Post Danmark provides basic postal services to all customers in Denmark – senders and recipients alike. Post Danmark's aim is to be the best postal service provider in Europe, measured in terms of service level, quality and price combined. In December 2010, the Danish Parliament passed a new Postal Services Act, which regulates the provision of postal services in Denmark while at the same time implementing the final part of deregulation of the Danish postal market with effect from 1 January 2011. The Postal Services Act allows for free competition and ensures that Post Danmark fulfils the role as provider of postal services falling within the scope of the universal service obligation. Post Danmark delivers mail to all households and businesses throughout the country six days a week. In addition, products subject to the universal service obligation still include addressed letters as well as daily, weekly and monthly papers up to 2 kilos and addressed parcels up to 20 kilos. Post Danmark can trace its history as far back as 1624 when King Christian IV signed a decree concerning the establishment of a network of postmen in Denmark. Ever since then, we have provided reliable, fast and accessible transport of mail in Denmark and abroad.
