The U.S. Postal Service has initiated a new service with Hong Kong Post that is structured to foster growth in e-commerce. The new ePacket service expands the array of options offered to e-commerce merchants in Hong Kong seeking to reach consumer markets in the United States. The ePacket shipping solution features tracking and Delivery Confirmation in the Postal Service network for lightweight goods and merchandise ordered by consumers in the United States from merchants in Hong Kong.

ePacket service offers consumers in the U.S. and e-commerce merchants in Hong Kong with in-process scanning information and Delivery Confirmation notification available through Hong Kong Post's tracking system and through Track and Confirm at usps.com

Merchants selecting the shipping solution through Hong Kong Post are now able to ship small packages weighing up to two kilograms (4.4 pounds) using co-branded shipping labels. Upon arrival in the United States, these packages receive First-Class Mail service with Delivery Confirmation service.

"This agreement offers visibility previously unavailable in the small packet segment between Hong Kong Post and the Postal Service," said Paul Vogel, president and chief marketing/sales officer. "It shows the Postal Service has the flexibility to develop service options to meet market demand from businesses around the world. Further, it solidifies our role as a key supplier in global commerce."

Hong Kong Post's agreement with the Postal Service includes jointly developed data-rich shipping labels integrated with barcoding technology readable by both Hong Kong Post and the Postal Service, along with logistics planning and Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) information exchanges.

USPS Deal with eBay Helps Expedite Chinese Imports

The U.S. Postal Service entered into a deal with eBay and China Post last year to help Chinese sellers send small packages to the U.S. in a much shorter period of time than regular international delivery services. eBay revealed that the agreement has led to 30,000 parcels a day sent from its sellers in China, with package-tracking included.

Nearly 40% of eBay sellers in China are using the ePacket service to ship to the U.S., with over 80% of items delivered in five to 10 days. Upon arrival in the U.S., these shipments are processed as domestic First-Class Mail, with a one to three-day delivery standard. According to the original announcement, "Sellers in China using the shipping platform through eBay GC are expected to ship small items such as cellular telephone accessories and electronics weighing up to 4.4 pounds (2 kilos), with most in the range of 13 ounces and under."

The service offers local pick-up service and label printing, coupled with online tracking and pre-customs declaration for a 7- to 10-day guaranteed delivery period and at a 30-50% discounted price compared with many equivalent services.

eBay also revealed it has launched e-Express, an exclusive premium shipping option for Hong Kong-based eBay sellers in partnership with Hongkong Post and the U.S. Postal Service.

Hong Kong sellers can choose the e-Express service via a fully integrated platform at www.shippingtool.ebay.com.hk. This enables them to synchronize their eBay transactions, get tracking numbers instantly, print shipping labels and have the tracking numbers uploaded to eBay automatically.

It's a cheaper, faster service than regular Registered Airmail to U.S. destinations for packets below two kilos, has full track-and-trace ability, offers online customs clearance to save time, and features an additional insurance option.

eBay said it is currently working to expand postage partnerships throughout the rest of the region, stating that improved postal tracking and delivery times is a key enablers of its export business.
