Large-volume business mailers can use a date-certain, guaranteed delivery service to the Pacific Rim based on the cooperative efforts of the U.S. Postal Service and five other world posts, the USPS said yesterday.
Global Express Mail service with guarantee, which became available to lower-volume mailers July 25, was launched in an historic agreement among postal administrations for Australia, China, Hong Kong, Japan, the United States and South Korea.
Since its inception, the five-day guaranteed delivery service has grown in popularity among lower-volume shippers, the USPS said. Also, the service has no hidden surcharges.
The introduction of this guarantee feature to large-volume businesses, such as major retailers, enhances the Global Express Mail service.
“Global Express Mail with guarantee is an ideal solution for business mailers,” said Jim Wade, USPS vice president of international business. “It can help these commercial shippers conduct transactions in the Pacific Rim, an arena which continues to experience unprecedented growth in international trade.”
