The Universal Postal Union (UPU)

The Postal Union was founded in 1874 by the first International Postal Congress held at Berne. Before that date, international exchanges of mail were regulated by numerous special agreements concluded between countries or groups of countries. The great variety of rates and conditions of dispatch and the diversity of scales of charges etc. resulting from that situation caused difficulties, which increased as traffic grew, to the public and the administrative authorities.
