That definition is funny.  "Digital documents" are ok., so you can send Word-  or PDF-files on a USB Stick as a letter. The same USB stick filled with music is not ok, you have to use the more expensive parcel.  ;D

Another "Gift" to "Am-a-zon"  free ship option by usual politicians ?
(..  money friends ? )
to the detriment of small-medium  shops … ?   :'(

Australia , Canada , and other countries scan all the shippings  (mail,packages, etc..)
from years ,
mainly for drugs and chemicals to produce it ,
but also for not allowed insects , or food that can contain them ,
deemed dangerous for their agriculture… ,

same for sea containers , and road trucks ,

but  they did not increase any shipping costs    ::)

…. or only " Gerxit "   check ?

They have done the same change in France two years ago.
Here, post office doesn't verify if parcel contains document or goods, instead it checks if the thickness is lighter than 3 cm to accept it as document.

Pros consumers have access to small parcel service (equivalent to international letter but for goods) while unfortunate private customers are required to use parcel service (colissimo) to send goods (if parcel thickness is greater than 3cm)

…hope they do not say that the reason why .. , is the fuel price-cost

because they all can change to electric vehicles
or methane conversion

as happened for many city buses , that was diesel
(the engine is the same , only modified)

Offically they said the reason for this document / goods difference change is to follow new machines requirements at sorting facilities. What will remain unknown is  why the pros consumers can continue to ship goods via international letter while privates are not allowed to...
