How Do I Use Express Mail (EMS)?

Mail gets tousled around a lot. Prevent damage to your item as much as possible by securing it in sound packaging. Pack your item well to guard against compression and shrinkage, warping, breakage, tearing, leakage, and water-damage.

In the event that something should just go wrong with your EMS pouch or else, your placement of your receiver’s address on your packaging (before you place it in the EMS pouch) may work in your interest. Ensure that you do the following:

  • Check that your receiver’s address information is correct, or else your item won’t get to them.
  • Write your receiver’s address somewhere on your item’s packaging – even if you use a sticker-type address label (Stickers can lose their stickiness, or be removed) 
  • Write your receiver’s address legibly (or type it out) so persons handling your package won’t have a hard time understanding what you wrote.

Once you’ve packaged and addressed your item, come on in to one of our major Post Offices located in your parish. Our friendly staff are committed to assisting you, simply request use of the Express Mail service (or EMS) and we’d help you from there to realize fast delivery of your item.

(Step 3. *Business Modification) Give GPC a call. Request pick up for your Express Mail item and we’d do the mailing for you, we’d simply add the charge to your account. No wastage of time, no standing in line.
