The Global Express Guaranteed (GXG) service run by the United States Postal Service (USPS) is to be made available from seven locations in Hawaii from next April.

Customers will be able to send packages to destinations in over 190 countries around the world under the assurance they will arrive in no more than three working days from the date of sending, reports Logistics Management.

Using the GXG service can be more cost-effective for customers looking to send parcels and packages, especially if they are time-sensitive and carrying overseas address data.

Doug Caldwell, executive vice-president of parcel consultancy ParcelPool, told the website: "A nice feature of GXG is that the price you pay is the price you pay, as there are not as many add-on charges - or accessorial - which can often be extensive with international shipments."

In addition, the recently-introduced Click-N-Ship feature available on the USPS website can help customers access a ten per cent discount on GXG shipping.

In other news, a new postal distribution center in California's Moreno Valley has been processing a million pieces of mail a day since it was opened a year ago, according to the Press-Enterprise.
