Small world

Guidry-Foxhoven, chief executive officer of Aprisa Express

The Postal Service and Aprisa Express, an international shipping and logistics company, have a history that goes back 20 years.

Aprisa specializes in online commerce, mail freight, and parcel shipments in Mexico, South America and other major markets around the world.

“Together with USPS, we’re making the world a smaller place by helping U.S. companies and organizations make deliveries in a simple, smart, and effective way,” Aprisa’s chief executive officer, Leslie Guidry-Foxhoven, says in a new video on the National Postal Museum’s site.

The 5-minute, 50-second segment is part of “America’s Mailing Industry,” an online exhibit that showcases the Postal Service and its business customers.

Aprisa’s newest service, Parcelmax, solves one of the industry’s biggest challenges — getting shipments through customs — by streamlining the checkout process.

As online commerce continues to grow, Aprisa and USPS will tackle the challenges in international shipping, Guidry-Foxhoven says.

“You’ll be able to count on the United States Postal Service to partner with companies like Aprisa to deliver the best, seamless solutions for all U.S.-based businesses so we can continue to be the proudest companies in the world,” she says.
