The results for the enlarged UNEX group of 29 countries are 94.2% J+3 and 98.8% J+5. The very high level of performance shown by the 2006 results demonstrates the commitment of the postal services in Europe to service excellence for their customers. European mail service performance for 2006 reached the highest level recorded, with 94.2% delivered within three days, and 98.8% within five days. This far exceeds the objectives set in the European Union (EU) Postal Directive of 85% in three days and 97% in five days.
