Integrated Index for Postal Development (2IPD)

The UPU's Integrated Index for Postal Development (2IPD) is a composite index providing an overview of postal development around the world, with the results for 2016 covering over 170 countries. The basic input into the 2IPD consists of UPU data, including postal big data – over 3 billion tracking records checked and analyzed – official UPU statistics, and key UPU surveys. 2IPD data insights thus rely on the greatest data integration ever conducted to measure the development of postal services on a global scale. An analysis of the data results in a benchmarking performance score (0 to 100) along four key dimensions of postal development: reliability, reach, relevance and resilience.

This Index reveals not only the relative performance of Posts around the world, but also the key roads to excellence in postal infrastructure. This makes the 2IPD a unique tool for policymakers, regulators, national Posts and other sector stakeholders eager to understand the role that postal services can play in the era of e‑commerce.
