The U.S. Postal Service and Overnite Express Ltd. of New Delhi, India, are offering a new option for shipping to the United States from countries in the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation.


The new option will allow Overnite Express to prepare shipments, transport them to the United States, clear them through commercial customs and enter the packages into the USPS' domestic mail delivery network as Priority Mail.


Overnite Express designed the shipping option, called US Smart Sewa, to meet the need for a reliable, low-cost shipping solution for India's widespread business community. The nations in the South Asian association are Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.


"The cooperative effort between the postal service and Overnite Express can benefit all sectors of the Indian community [and] branches of U.S. companies in India, including those who are in touch with relatives, friends or educational institutions or associations," said O.P. Rajgarhia, chairman/CEO of Overnite Express Ltd.


Overnite Express has 14 regional hubs and 800 offices at all major centers in India, including locations in New Delhi, Calcutta and Bangalore.


The USPS' Global Business Development group has negotiated similar agreements with commercial enterprises in South Korea, Mexico, Europe, Central America, South America and Asia.
