IPC facilitates the negotiations between members that determine on what basis member posts are paid for the on-time delivery of inbound international mail. These intercompany payments are known as Terminal Dues, and the arrangements for payments are contained in multilateral remuneration agreements which the Intercompany Pricing team administers. The arrangements (and the agreements) constantly evolve in response to customer needs and technological advance and competitive pressures among the signatories to the agreements.
