Postal Remuneration Boring but Important

UPU Postal Remuneration is Boring but Important

Another meeting of the UPU on postal remuneration of terminal dues occurred April 9th. Most likely, you didn’t hear about it. Often times the UPU is not that interesting, but whats happening now could change eCommerce and the global economy for years to come. The UPU (Universal Postal Union) coordinates postal policies of 192 countries. The UPU uses postal remuneration to help developing countries by subsidizing more prosperous countries with terminal dues. As a result the wealthier countries pay a higher share of the costs. Countries are placed in nine different categories based on their level of development. The rates developing countries pay are usually far lower than rates paid by domestic shippers in more developed countries. In some cases, terminal dues are so low that that developed countries like the U.S. actually lose money on mail sent to them internationally from less developed countries like… China?

The USPS is Subsidizing Chinese eCommerce

The UPU categorizes China as a developing country entitling them to huge international postal discounts. China is however, the world’s largest exporter and the second largest economy in the world. The deluge of eCommerce packages from China is costing the USPS, Canada Post, and other international postal services too much. Mail services for small packages shipped from China to the US cost significantly less than what USPS charges American mailers for a domestic service. At the same time, local companies are losing business because they cannot compete with the subsidized postal costs their Chinese competitors benefit from.

The U.S. Will Leave the UPU

The United States must find the UPU Postal Remuneration boring too. Last Year, the U.S. informed the UPU of its decision to withdraw effective 1/1/2020. No doubt, this got the attention of the UPU. An extraordinary postal congress happened September of 2018 with a second meeting this week and another scheduled this September. If a resolution is not found, the US would unilaterally set postal rates for packages entering the United States or increase tariffs again. The postal services and local businesses of countries continue to lose money on eCommerce packages from AliBaba, Ebay, Wish, etc. The USPS loses about $1 on every eCommerce package arriving from China. If a resolution is not found, the impact to the postal systems of the world and global trade will suffer. Imagine the largest economy in the world setting the postal rates of their biggest competitor.

Another Boring UPU Meeting that will Impact the Global Economy

Again, there was another boring UPU meeting this week. So what happened at the meeting? In short, not enough. There are three options being weighed by 192 countries with a vote coming this September. First, allow member countries to self-declare postal rates. Second, accelerate rate increases already approved by the UPU. Finally, the third option that also adopts self-declared rates as its basis, but with elements aimed at mitigating undue price impacts. The next postal remuneration meeting planned September 23-24, impacts every country.  Leaving the UPU now has many unknown consequences. For the USPS, leaving the UPU means negotiating individual postal agreements with every country in the world. That’s a logistical nightmare, in a boring sort of way.

Extraordinary Postal Congress

UPU Extraordinary Postal Congress

The Universal Postal Union is holding an Extraordinary Postal Congress in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia this week. This may have a drastic impact on international eCommerce. The UPU coordinate rates and standards between every national postal system, and has been a vital to international structure since 1874. Crucial reforms are needed for terminal dues if the US is going to be able be competitive in both global and domestic eCommerce.

Terminal Dues

The UPU uses a system to help developing countries by subsidizing more prosperous countries with terminal dues. As a result the wealthier countries pay a higher share of the costs. Countries are positioned in nine different categories based on their level of development. The rates developing countries pay are usually far lower than rates paid by domestic shippers in more developed countries. In some cases, terminal dues are so low that that developed countries like the US actually lose money on mail sent to them internationally. The Extraordinary Postal Congress meeting may result in significant changes to how some countries are positioned.

China Has an Unfair Advantage

The UPU categorizes China as a category three economy entitling them to huge international postal discounts. China is however, the second largest economy in the world. This allows Chinese retailers to undercut American retailers by very wide margins. The Chinese economy is benefiting at the expensive of US retailers and the United States Postal Service. The USPS loses an estimated $1 on every small package that arrives from China. In Fact, mail services for small packages shipped from China to the US cost significantly less than what USPS charges American mailers for a comparable service.

The Cost to American E commerce and the USPS

Terminal dues on items from China to the US average $1 per Kilogram. As a result, USPS received less compensation for a China Post package moved from a Los Angeles port to its final destination inland, than it would have from someone in Los Angeles who sent an identical package within the United States. Costing the China Post less than the price of a U.S. stamp. Conversely, it is far more expensive to send a similar package to China. The Extraordinary Postal Congress gives us an opportunity to change China’s unfair trade advantage with the US.

UPU Can Influence Fair Trade

The Extraordinary Postal Congress convened in an effort to reform the UPU. Just 1 of 192 countries invited is the US. This give us a small voice in a big crowd. It is vital the we work with our allies to influence the UPU to categorize China as the developed country that it is. Finally this would create fairer trade between China and the rest of the developed world.

The Impact of Tariffs & Mailing China

The Impact of Tariffs

America has been the leader of the global free trade for decades, but that is beginning to change. The United States has levied tariffs on all 5 of our largest trading partners. Canada, China, Japan, Europe, and China. All but Japan have retaliated with tariffs of their own. Tariffs are a ultimately a tax on American consumers and businesses.

International Mail Companies & The Auto Industry

So far, there is no impact to international mail, but if trade declines between countries so will mail volumes.  The tariffs are likely to have the biggest impact to the automotive industry. Automobiles are the US’s 3rd largest export. The majority of US auto exports are sent to our largest trading partners (Canada, China, Mexico, and Germany.) The tariffs will likely decrease exports, and in the long term move manufacturing to other countries. The EU has imposed tariffs on $3.2 billion of US imports, and some predictions are that tariffs could rise to $300 billion if a resolution cannot be reached.

The tariffs are designed to increase manufacturing and consumption of domestic goods. A decrease in imports also come at a cost. US ports and border crossings would being doing less business. The creation of new manufacturing jobs would likely come at the expense of the rail, bridge, and port businesses.

Cost of Postage to Canada

The cost of postage to Canada has not changed. Canada has long been our largest trading partner and closest ally. In retaliation to tariffs being applied to goods from our largest trading partner, Canada has imposed tariffs of their own on $12.6 billion worth of US products. Most notable is the 25% tariff on US Steel, but a wide variety of products are now subject to a 10% tariff. See the items detailed below:

Aluminum / Yogurt / Coffee / Beef / Maple Syrup / Candy & Chocolates / Pizza / Cucumbers / Strawberry Jam / Orange Juice / Ketchup / Mayonnaise / Salad Dressing / Condiments & Sauces / Whiskies / Candles / Dishwasher Detergents / Glues & Adhesives / Insecticides / Fungicides / Herbicides / Plastic bags / Table & Kitchenware / Plywood / Toilet Paper / Handkerchiefs / Facial Tissues / Towels / Tablecloths / Printed Postcards / Greeting Cards / Cast Iron Grilles / Refrigerators / Water Heaters / Dish Washers / Lawn Mowers / Dryers / Boats / Chairs / Mattresses / Pillows & Cushions / Bedding / Playing Cards / Pens

Mailing China

Chinese imports benefit from low postage rates to the US. Often times it is less costly to send mail from China than to mail domestically within the United States. Export postage to China is drastically higher than what it costs to import from China. There are some discounted rates available, especially for savvy print & e-Commerce companies. ( Learn more  ) This coupled with high tariffs on many US goods has resulted in a large trade deficit. It does however, keep prices competitive and domestic producers searching for new innovations.

July 6th saw a 25 percent tariff on 818 Chinese imports, worth $34 billion a year. China retaliated with tariffs of their own. There is evidence that China subsidizes key industries allowing state-owned businesses to overproduce and undercut market prices. They also force foreign companies that want to do business in China to share key technologies. The consensus from economists is that tariffs are not a viable solution. The best solution may come from the WTO. The United States should enlist the help of our largest trading allies Europe, Canada, Japan to push for changes in the Chinese government’s economic scheming. China usually complies with WTO ordered remedies, and the US wins about 90% of the cases they present to the WTO against them.

History has proven that there are no winners in a trade war. There is a delicate balance. It makes sense to negotiate tariff rates as part of trade deals, but we cannot risk a global economic trade war.

The tariffs will likely decrease exports, and in the long term move manufacturing to other countries. The EU has imposed tariffs on $3.2 billion of US imports, and some predictions are that tariffs could rise to $300 billion if a resolution cannot be reached.

The tariffs are designed to increase manufacturing and consumption of domestic goods. A decrease in imports also come at a cost. US ports and border crossings would being doing less business. The creation of new manufacturing jobs would likely come at the expense of the rail, bridge, and port businesses.

Cost of Postage to Canada

The cost of postage to Canada has not changed. Canada has long been our largest trading partner and closest ally. In retaliation to tariffs being applied to goods from our largest trading partner, Canada has imposed tariffs of their own on $12.6 billion worth of US products. Most notable is the 25% tariff on US Steel, but a wide variety of products are now subject to a 10% tariff. See the items detailed below:

Aluminum / Yogurt / Coffee / Beef / Maple Syrup / Candy & Chocolates / Pizza / Cucumbers / Strawberry Jam / Orange Juice / Ketchup / Mayonnaise / Salad Dressing / Condiments & Sauces / Whiskies / Candles / Dishwasher Detergents / Glues & Adhesives / Insecticides / Fungicides / Herbicides / Plastic bags / Table & Kitchenware / Plywood / Toilet Paper / Handkerchiefs / Facial Tissues / Towels / Tablecloths / Printed Postcards / Greeting Cards / Cast Iron Grilles / Refrigerators / Water Heaters / Dish Washers / Lawn Mowers / Dryers / Boats / Chairs / Mattresses / Pillows & Cushions / Bedding / Playing Cards / Pens

Mailing China

Chinese imports benefit from low postage rates to the US. Often times it is less costly to send mail from China than to mail domestically within the United States. Export postage to China is drastically higher than what it costs to import from China. There are some discounted rates available, especially for savvy print & e-Commerce companies. ( Learn more  ) This coupled with high tariffs on many US goods has resulted in a large trade deficit. It does however, keep prices competitive and domestic producers searching for new innovations.

July 6th saw a 25 percent tariff on 818 Chinese imports, worth $34 billion a year. China retaliated with tariffs of their own. There is evidence that China subsidizes key industries allowing state-owned businesses to overproduce and undercut market prices. They also force foreign companies that want to do business in China to share key technologies. The consensus from economists is that tariffs are not a viable solution. The best solution may come from the WTO. The United States should enlist the help of our largest trading allies Europe, Canada, Japan to push for changes in the Chinese government’s economic scheming. China usually complies with WTO ordered remedies, and the US wins about 90% of the cases they present to the WTO against them.

History has proven that there are no winners in a trade war. There is a delicate balance. It makes sense to negotiate tariff rates as part of trade deals, but we cannot risk a global economic trade war.

First Class International Mail Changes

First Class International Mail

The United States Postal Service is planning to change First Class International Mail features and classifications in 2018.  Above all the changes would implement a restriction on the contents of First Class International Mail to documents only.  This is in an effort to comply with standards of the Universal Postal Union.

First Class International Changes

We anticipate that in 2018 merchandise of any kind will not be permitted in USPS First Class International Mail letters and flats. Anything classified merchandise mails as commercial mail via the USPS’s International Priority Airmail (IPA) service or International Surface Air Lift (ISAL.) Electronic documents such as CDs, DVDs, and flash drives will not be considered documents for mailing purposes. Also excluded will be artwork, books, magazines, printed music, educational material, commercial blueprints, commercial photos, commercial engineering drawings, and X-rays. There is no price change for the service.  In contrast many USPS customers will be forced to use the more costly IPA, ISAL, Global Express, Priority Mail Express, Priority Mail International, and First-Class Package International Services. This will increase mailing costs. The rates for some of these services have gone up twice already in 2017. Also these rates increase again in 2018.

USPS International Mail Alternatives

Atlas International Mail has alternatives in place to bypass the USPS altogether. Our Priority Standard International (PSI) and Priority Lettermail International (PLI) services offer comparable delivery speeds at a fraction of the cost of international USPS Airmail. We strategically enter your mailings into the national postal systems of well-developed countries.  As a result, you get unique postage savings opportunities from each foreign postal administration. We can help you avoid the wholesale USPS international rates hikes. For comparative price quotes, please let us know the size and weight of your mail pieces and provide a breakdown of quantities by country.  In many cases we are able to save customers as much as 50% off the standard USPS international rates. There are never any contracts to sign or hidden fees to pay.
