USPS and SEPOMEX sign agreement to improve cross-boarder mail service

The US Postal Service and the Servicio Postal Mexicano (SEPOMEX) have signed an agreement to improve mail services between the United States and Mexico.

USPS has agreed to help SEPOMEX in an effort to improve its management structure and processes and re-engineer its operations. SEPOMEX has agreed to work with USPS in exploring and developing joint business opportunities and improving cross-border services.

SEPOMEX has struggled with inefficiency and security.

"The strategy of this agreement is to work together and determine areas where USPS has made efficiency gains that could be replicated by SEPOMEX," said Yvonne Yoerger, media relations representative at USPS. "It will include SEPOMEX staff visiting US facilities to analyze procedures and equipment, again to see where improvements or best practices that have proven successful here can be implemented south of the border as well."

The USPS will use its own transformation experience in supporting SEPOMEX. Since embarking on a strategic transformation in 2002, the USPS has taken an average of $1 billion out of its cost base annually, while making productivity gains.

The two agencies will form a Joint Service Improvement and Business Development Team to pursue initiatives in international express mail service, air mail parcels and package services.

Another key component of the agreement is collaboration to develop enhanced security procedures for all mail products. USPS has agreed to support SEPOMEX in developing its own postal inspection group, including the selection, hiring and training of postal inspectors.
