USPS, LanChile Partner to Spur Hemispheric Trade

Share this content:
LanLogistics and the U.S. Postal Service have partnered to enhance trade in the Americas.

Miami-based LanLogistics is a subsidiary of LanChile S.A., Chile's largest domestic and international passenger/cargo air carrier and one of the leading airlines in Latin America. Together with its partners, the company serves 15 destinations in Chile, 17 throughout other cities in Latin America, 16 in the United States, eight in Europe and two in the South Pacific.

The organizations said they will aim to provide fast, economical and reliable shipping from countries throughout Latin America and the Caribbean to destinations in the United States.

Currently these mailers must choose between premium-priced expedited shipping options and regular mail service, which often does not meet the needs of business shippers and consumers. The organizations hope that by combining LanLogistics' local market knowledge with USPS' Priority Mail, shipments will be fast and cost-effective.

The service will be marketed in all countries in the region. Shipments will be picked up by SkyNet Worldwide Express, a division of LanLogistics. They will be flown to the United States, where they will be delivered as Priority Mail by the USPS. Delivery times are expected to be as fast as two to three days for most shipments.

Trade between the United States and Latin America totals $375 billion annually. More than 40 million shipments are exported from Latin America into the United States each year, and this partnership offers a new option to businesses and consumers who wish to reach the U.S. market.

It also provides a revenue opportunity to the postal service by increasing inbound Priority Mail volume.
