India Post and Canada Post join forces to facilitate e-commerce

The Post Offices of India and Canada recently entered into an agreement to introduce the International Tracked Packet Service (ITPS) between the two countries.

It aims to facilitate e-commerce export, according to an official statement from the Indian Ministry of Communications.

The service went live on Saturday.

A competitive parcel forwarding and delivery service, the ITPS is designed to meet the cross-border shipping needs of e-commerce exporters, including MSMEs, small businesses and merchants, and to promote the export of their products using local mailroom services.

India Post already offers this service with 38 partner countries and Canada is the new addition – 39.

“The service has expanded from 16 countries to 38 countries as of June 1, 2023 by adding 22 new partners including UK, France, UAE, Egypt, Oman, etc.”

“ITPS rates are very cheap compared to International EMS (Speed ​​Post) and other market products. Postage for the first 50 grams is 400 rupees and each additional 50 grams is 35 rupees. This will provide exporters with an affordable shipping solution up to 2kg, along with collection and volume-based discount for contract customers,” the statement continued.
