From June 1, 2021

Reason for the introduction

Since the number of flights has been reduced owing to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, we have had no choice but to suspend the acceptance of some postal items. We apologize for any inconvenience. We have been discussing with airlines to secure space on flights for postal items, but our transportation costs have unavoidably risen. We are sincerely sorry, but we are forced to introduce a “tentative extra charge for EMS” starting on 1st June 2021. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.

Accordingly, we will continue accepting EMS to major countries in Europe and will resume accepting EMS to the United States of America and other destinations.

Thank you for your kind understanding and cooperation. We will make every possible effort to continue providing stable EMS service.
