Emirates Post issues a commemorative stamp to mark the milestone 20th anniversary of the UPU’s EMS Cooperative. Created by the UPU’s International Bureau, the stamp is being launched on 10 September, to coincide with the date the organisation was founded, and will be issued by several postal organisations worldwide.
Founded at the Beijing Congress on 10 September 1999, the EMS Cooperative was created by the Postal Operations Council (POC) to develop Express Mail Service (EMS) and promote cooperation between postal organisations to provide customers with a high-quality, competitive EMS service on a global basis. EMS is the fastest postal product, combining speed with reliability, affordability and customer service. Emirates Post joined the EMS Cooperative in 2004 and more than 180 designated operators are now members.
Commenting on the special issuance, HE Abdulla M. Alashram, Acting Group CEO of Emirates Post Group, said: “Since the EMS Cooperative was founded, the EMS product has gone from strength to strength. They have developed a number of initiatives to assist members to improve their EMS service. Given its clear commitment to speed and an enduring dedication to the quality of service, we are proud to be a member and to mark this occasion with a commemorative stamp.”
“Aligned with the EMS’s dedication to excellence in customer service, we are honoured to have received several accolades from them in recognition of our high standards. On behalf of Emirates Post, I would like to congratulate EMS Cooperative on reaching this milestone and we look forward to working with them over the next 20 years to deliver excellence,” Alashram continued.
Emirates Post is issuing 30,000 commemorative stamps, which are available at Emirates Post Central Happiness Centres for 3 AED each. The local postal services provider is also issuing 1,000 First Day Covers priced at 4 AED each.
