The USPS alliance with FedEx to provide Global Express Guaranteed (GXG) service has been extended for a five-year term.
The renewed GXG agreement — under which the two companies will collaborate to operate the Postal Service’s premier, date-certain international delivery service to more than 190 countries and territories — continues an alliance that began in 2004. Since the alliance was formed, GXG volume has almost doubled.
“The Postal Service is pleased to renew this important agreement with FedEx,” said Pranab Shah, USPS vice president and managing director, Global Business. “We intend to build on the accomplishments of the initial agreement, enhancing GXG’s world-class service reliability by using the resources of both organizations to provide quality and value for our customers.”
GXG is available at thousands of participating postal retail locations and through Click-N-Ship online at www.usps.com/clicknship.
