Emirates Post and Swiss Post explore further areas of mutual cooperation
A high-level delegation from Swiss Post, led by Chief Executive Officer of Swiss Post, Ulrich Gygi, held talks with Emirates Post Director General Abdullah Al-Daboos, to explore areas of further mutual cooperation.
The talks centered on boosting the existing business service agreement between Emirates Post and the Global Alliance of Transportation Systems, a wholly owned subsidiary of Swiss Post.
The Swiss Post officials’ visit follows the opening of GATS’ third mail transfer Hub in Dubai in October 2003, under a Business Service Agreement between Emirates Post and GATS. The Dubai Hub was chosen because of its strategic location that provides GATS’ postal partners an important transit hub to and from Europe and the Far East.
“We see immense potential for expanding postal business ties between Emirates Post and Swiss Post," said Al-Daboos. “The business service agreement between GATS and Emirates Post has laid the foundation for a strong relationship that we are sure will spill into other areas of cooperation. This visit from Swiss Post officials has provided the right platform to draw up concrete plans to establish mutually beneficial relationships in postal matters.”
GATS has been operating its own modern airmail distribution hub since January 2001 from a location close to London’s Heathrow Airport. Since then, GATS has opened mail transfer hubs in Singapore, Dubai, Moscow and Kingston, Jamaica. More such hubs are planned for Sydney, Madrid, Frankfurt, Paris and cities in the United States and South America. — (menareport.com)
