Universal Postal Union Reviews Three Options for Remuneration
The Universal Postal Union (UPU) held a special conference this week to discuss postal remuneration – the prices paid to a postal operator (such as the US Postal Service) for the international delivery of postal items, including ecommerce items. It’s a big issue because President Trump has pushed back on the low rates paid by China for delivering small packages to US online shoppers.
Yesterday’s UPU conference brought together representatives of the UPU’s member countries, postal operators, industry experts and other interested parties.
The UPU issued a press release today detailing the three options that were before a special committee and what it concluded.
