Glossary

The Universal Postal Union is the primary forum for cooperation between postal services and helps to ensure a universal network of up-to-date products and services. In this way, the organisation fulfils an advisory, mediating and liaison role and renders technical assistance where needed. It sets the rules for international mail exchanges and makes recommendations to stimulate growth in mail volumes and to improve the quality of service for customers.
