UPU signs MOU with OTIF

26.01.2018 - The Universal Postal Union and the Intergovernmental Organization for International Carriage by Rail (OTIF) have signed a memorandum of understanding to facilitate cooperation on the international carriage of postal items.

UPU Director General Bishar A. Hussein signs the memorandum with OTIF Secretary General François Davenne.

The memorandum will formalize working ties between the two organizations – both of which have interests in the shipment of postal items from China to Europe via rail – allowing them to share knowledge and establish working groups where necessary to prepare recommendations and guidelines toward cooperation.

“With cross border e-commerce on the rise, it is more important than ever for supply chain partners to deliver what our customers are demanding, which is quick, reliable and inexpensive delivery of goods. Developing rail corridors for the carriage of post is an attractive option that we look forward to exploring further with OTIF,” said UPU Director General Bishar A. Hussein.

The UPU Director General signed the memorandum with OTIF Secretary General François Davenne at the International Bureau on 23 January.
