UPU and IPC agree to enhance cooperation on postal development

The Universal Postal Union (UPU) and International Post Corporation (IPC) have agreed to enhance their cooperation for the development of the postal sector worldwide. In a statement sent to Post&Parcel, UPU Director General Bishar A. Hussein said: “The UPU’s foremost aim is to secure the organization and improvement of postal services worldwide and to promote international collaboration in this area. We are therefore particularly pleased to engage in a partnership that brings measurable benefits for the industry by contributing to the development of accessible, efficient and innovative postal services in our member countries.

“This joint cooperation program supports the advancement of the UPU’s goals and strategy while conforming to its principles for cooperation with the private sector.”

Holger Winklbauer, IPC CEO, added: “Both our organisations share the same goal of helping our member posts to enhance postal service in today’s challenging markets and in particular to play a greater role in e-commerce delivery.

“This agreement represents a major step in our cooperation, aiming at building a mutually supportive working relationship for the benefit of the postal industry worldwide, in a context of increasingly scarce resources.”

The two organizations will work together in areas such as: IT, RFID, standards and supply chain, e-commerce markets, sustainability and support to development.

They will also look to help members to “interconnect postal networks together and ensure end-to-end visibility for consumers” and work on solutions to make cross-border shipments easier.
