… PRC Chairman: Trump UPU Memo “An Enormous Leap Forward”


Postal Regulatory Commission Chairman Robert Taub endorsed President Trump’s executive order seeking changes in the UPU’s terminal dues in a statement released to the public.

“The anticompetitive nature of the Universal Postal Union (UPU) has concerned the United States Government since the Reagan Administration,” Taub said.

“The increasingly competitive and commercial nature of the market has exacerbated these long-standing distortions. Yet, little has changed at the UPU. The UPU continues to promulgate agreements that require posts to undercharge for delivery of inbound mail, to insulate postal shipments from full application of national customs laws, and to promote a different legal regime for postal operators and competing private carriers,” he said.

“President Trump’s Memorandum represents an enormous leap forward to finally addressing these problems on behalf of our fellow Americans – particularly U.S. merchants, U.S. mailers, and U.S. private-sector carriers who are trying to compete fairly in these global markets.”
