IPC’s service to KPG

  • IPC provides performance reports for KPG Standard (i.e. EMS) and the KPG Parcel network (Hybrid e-commerce). Performance reports are used for operational improvement and performance enhancement. As of this year, with the closure of two Migration Projects, all KPG performance and claims and liability reports will be available in the new generation system, BI (Business Intelligence) Tool.
  • System performance and progress of outstanding tasks are monitored on a daily basis and discussed in weekly and monthly review meetings via conference call.
  • KPG relies on IPC’s Global Customer Service System to enhance communication between customer service centres and ensure a fast reply to enquiries about the status of international tracked items. IPC provides system support and runs several reports, including a quality calibration process for KPG Standard and Parcel services.
  • KPG is also using the Common Return Platform, allowing for an easy-to-use cross-border returns system between members of the Kahala Post Group.
  • As from September 2017, KPG members can also access the IPC ITMATT DQM (Data Quality Monitoring) tool. To ensure standardisation and consistency, KPG members are also part of the ITMATT report and validation group chaired by IPC.
