The Department of Posts
(DoP) has signed an Agreement with South Africa Post for starting
international EMS (Speed Post) service with that country. This agreement
signed recently is expected to augment people-to-people contact between
the two countries, and foster trade, as EMS is a popular export channel
for small and medium enterprises. The EMS service to South Africa will
be available at the major post offices from September 2012 onwards.
EMS or Express Mail Service is a premium service that enables its users
to send letters, documents and parcels faster with the added facility of
being able to track the movement of the item on the internet.
