Postal Expertise to Aid Ailing Institution

Many postal organizations around the world have worked to upgrade and streamline their operations over the years as new technology has become available. This isn’t the case for all Post Offices, however, and one in particular is seeking the aid of another to improve its services.

The Russian Post has been in existence for almost a millennia. While this is an impressive length of time, a long history doesn’t necessarily translate into operational dominance. The lack of investment in its infrastructure and modernization over the years has left the historic organization behind the times.

Refusing to accept mediocrity as a permanent norm, Russian Post has recently hired the expertise of the Italian Post Office. Russian Post hopes to capitalize on the modern knowledge and techniques offered by its new partner to streamline its own operations and bring its system into the 21st century.

Do you think the US Postal Service could offer its expertise to help other Post Offices in the world improve their operations?

    USPS certainly offer its expertise to help other countries’ postal services improve their operations. After all, we are the most efficient in the World, delivering more pieces per employee than any other.

    Wasn’t it the Italian Post Office 20 years ago that was so bad that a lawyer was disbarred because he used them to mail an important document rather than a private delivery company??? The belief was that anyone who would trust the Italian Post was not fit to be a lawyer…..
