The companies, members of the Association for the National and International Transport of Parcels and Packages (Atepani), claim that the Management of Mail and Telegrams (Cotel) intends to become an organization that is "judge and jury," since it will regulate the service in which it is also a participant.
The institution came in first place in the rankings conducted by the Express Mail Service (EMS) Cooperative of the Universal Postal Union.
The government has announced that it will be preparing the groundwork for convening an international tender for concession of operation of the postal service.
Aimed at SMEs, "Exporta Fácil", Spanish for "Easy Export", allows companies to export through the postal service, and is now available in 47 postal offices.
The increased activity which comes from being a global logistics hub, expected to increase even more when the expanded canal is operating, requires an all encompassing regulatory framework.
