New Delhi, Sep 6 (IANS) India’s Department of Posts Thursday said it has signed an agreement with South Africa Post for starting a speed post service between the two countries.

“This agreement signed recently is expected to augment people-to-people contact between the two countries and foster trade, as EMS (Express Mail Service) is a popular export channel for small and medium enterprises,” the DoP said in a statement.

The service can be availed at major post offices from this month.

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.
