Especially after the period of the pandemic, an increase in the entities that were provided with the general authorization for the provision of postal services was noticed. From 2020 to 2022, a doubling of the number of entities providing postal services is observed, bringing their number from 18 in 2020 to 36 in 2022. Meanwhile, during 2023, the number of entities suffered a decrease of significant in 24, which, according to AKEP, shows the formalization of this sector.

The postal market in number of deliveries continues to be dominated by the universal postal service and the entity providing this service, the Albanian Post.

The total number of universal service postal facilities in 2023 was 18.4 million, a significant decrease of 16% compared to 2022. Postal facilities part of the universal service in 2023 constituted 95% of the total postal facilities of the Albanian Post and 80 % of the total of all postal facilities in Albania.

The significant decrease in the number of postal facilities of the Albanian Post was mainly due to the decrease of 17% in the number of postal facilities within the country, which constitute 96% of the total. International postal facilities resulted in an increase of 2% in 2023, where incoming international postal facilities increased by 4%, while the number of outgoing international postal facilities was reduced by 6%.

Regarding the total volume of postal deliveries throughout the year 2023, (excluding the Albanian Post, as the provider of the Universal Postal Service and as dominant in the market in terms of the volume of postal deliveries and deliveries), the market is led by Albanian Delivery Express, with about 35% of total deliveries followed by "United Transport", with 13% of the total./Monitor
