Global Express Association (GEA)

The three members of the Global Express Association (DHL Express, FedEx Express -­‐ which includes TNT -­‐ and UPS) support an ambitious implementation of the WTO’s Trade Facilitation Agreement, as they are convinced it can bring significant economic and development benefits that will be widely shared. 


GEA members are keen to contribute to implementation efforts by making available their technical expertise in the following areas: 

Border clearance processes and procedures
Small and medium size business needs and requirements
Automation and Information and Communication Technology
Regulatory impact assessment on transport and logistics operators
Multi-­‐modal transportation and delivery operations
Performance metrics
Ability to bring customers to the implementation discussion.

GEA members cannot make direct financial contributions to implementation efforts. 

GEA members support the Global Alliance for Trade Facilitation.  Their resources will be channelled primarily  through  the  Alliance.    However,  to  the  extent  additional  resources  are  available,  GEA  members  are  ready  to  contribute  to  projects  in  countries  not  covered  by  the  Alliance,  through partnerships with other donors or coalitions of donors.  Such projects will be considered on a case-­‐by-­‐case basis. 

Interested donors or countries should write to:
