Zimbabwe – Suspension of inbound and outbound mail operations

2020-03-26

The designated operator of Zimbabwe, Zimbabwe Posts (Pvt) Ltd. (Zimpost), would like to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that, following the suspension of flights into and out of Zimbabwe by its partner airlines, it has suspended all inbound and outbound international mail operations from 19 March 2020 until further notice.

Zimpost is therefore declaring a force majeure situation. It is unable to guarantee inbound and outbound mail standards, and asks to be exempted from the UPU’s delivery time and quality measurement requirements for all categories of mail items (letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items).

Zimpost thanks all Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding. It will update them via EmIS once the situation has returned to normal.
