Postal Service and Less Developed Countries
Within a single nation, the same postal organization that collects revenue for a particular piece of mail performs all services associated with delivering that piece. When a piece of mail is bound for a foreign country, however, a different postal administration performs final processing and delivery services from the postal administration that collected revenue and initiated processing. The postal administration of the destinating country provides services for which it does not directly receive revenue.
