KPG alliance CEOs meet in Paris from July 11 to 14

For 3 and a half days, the French Post hosted in Paris its 10 counterparts, members of the KPG alliance. The CEOs of Japan Post, Canada Post, Australia Post, Hong Kong Post, Thailand Post, Correos, USPS, Korea Post, China Post and Royal Mail were present or represented.

Philippe Wahl, Chairman and CEO of La Poste Groupe, took over the role of Chairman of the Alliance for one year at the CEOs' meeting in Madrid in July 2022. It was in this context that La Poste Groupe hosted the 2023 meeting, at the close of the rotating presidency.

The commitments made at this meeting in Paris are designed to reinforce service quality and operational efficiency, and to develop the alliance's product portfolio and sustainability in order to better meet market expectations in a competitive environment. Alliance members also reached a unanimous consensus on the growing importance of cyber security.

Dr Dhanant SUBHADRABANDHU, CEO of Thailand Post, succeeds Philippe WAHL as Chairman of the Alliance. The next meeting will be held in Bangkok in July 2024.

In order to learn more about the La Poste Groupe and the diversity of its activities, the delegations visited the flagship of La Poste office in the Louvre and the Louvre urban logistics area, after an introduction to the premises of Louvre Banque Privée. This was an opportunity for Jean-Paul FORCEVILLE to welcome delegations to this emblematic location, and to present La Poste Groupe's various businesses and services.

The KPG alliance was created in 2002 by 6 postal operators: 5 in Asia Pacific (Australia Post, China Post, Hongkong Post, Japan Post and Korea Post) and USPS. La Poste Groupe joined the alliance in 2007. Today, KPG has 11 members: 6 founding members and Royal Mail, Correos (Spain), La Poste, Thailand Post and Canada Post.

The goal of the KPG alliance is to improve EMS product performance with end-to-end tracking, in order to offer our customers an optimized and competitive postal service. The total EMS flows of the 11 KPG members represent the majority of global EMS flows. Since 2017, tracked packets have been integrated into KPG's scope to meet market developments.

At the initiative of the French Post, a sustainable development project has been launched for 2022, co-piloted by La Poste and Correos.
