Jamaica Post asks us to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that the International Mail Processing Centre in Kingston, Jamaica (IMPC code JMKINA), had to initiate an emergency shutdown of operations as of 9.52 local time on Tuesday, 14 May 2019, owing to noxious fumes circulating outside and within the IMPC.
Consequently, all outbound and inbound mail operations have been impacted. Certain administrative functions, such as the processing of verification notes and customer queries by the Customer Service Unit, have also been affected.
The local health and emergency authorities are actively investigating the situation.
Jamaica Post thanks all member countries and their designated operators for their understanding. It will update them via EmIS once the situation has returned to normal.
