Mail Service

SWISS MailFor your international mail exchange

The airmail parcel business is constantly increasing due to a phenomenal potential market volume and growth for national postal organisations. The worldwide major postal organisations are already prominently active in this high-potential business sector. They are busy ensuring greater vertical integration and control over their operation processes to secure a leading role in the global logistics arena and position themselves to offer integrated international Express Mail Services (EMS), Priority Mail (Airmail) or Non-Priority Mail (S.A.L).
Airmail services have their own special needs – whether they are Express Mail Services (EMS), Priority Mail (Airmail) or Non-Priority Mail (S.A.L) – exemplary efficiency is just as essential as absolute discretion, be it letters or parcels.
