About IMAG

The premier representative of the U.S. international mailing sector

The International Mailers’ Advisory Group (IMAG) was founded in 1997 and, since then, it has become the premier representative of the U.S. international mailing and shipping sector. Our core mission is to address barriers to the efficient flow of information and goods across borders for companies utilizing postal services.

Why does our voice matter?  Outbound U.S. international mail has more volume than the combined rest-of-world international mail.  While it is a small percentage of overall volume for the U.S. Postal Service, it is a bright spot of future growth for marketing mail and packages.


Who are our members? IMAG represents a diverse community of consolidators, marketers, vendors and international mailing organizations.  We monitor developments worldwide to identify impediments and work toward removing them to ensure the smooth delivery of international mail and parcels.

What happens at our quarterly meetings? Our quarterly meetings bring to the table the people who lead, influence and analyze our industry, so members can get their questions answered and issues resolved.

How can we help your company? IMAG stands ready to address any issues that affect our members. Contact us and let us know the issues that have an impact on your international mailing operations. We invite you to join us and participate in our many initiatives.

How Does IMAG Work?


We monitor developments worldwide, and we work toward removing them to ensure the smooth delivery of international mail and parcels. We are recognized as a credible voice in international forums as we:

  • work with the Global Business unit of the U.S. Postal Service to improve products and services for our industry;

  • together, work with the Postal Service and other posts to resolve service or operational issues as they arise;

  • interact with U.S. Customs and Border Protection to stay on top of customs issues and regulations; and

  • serve on the U.S. Department of State's Advisory Committee on International Postal and Delivery Services, which provides advice to the State Department on U.S. foreign policy related to international postal and delivery services and toward the Universal Postal Union and other international organizations.
