Western Union Financial Services, the worldwide leaders in money transfer, and India Post, India’s postal department have undertaken a new marketing initiative to strengthen their relationship with the Indian communities and build awareness. The two have embarked on a month-long series of road shows in Maharashtra and Goa. The road show was kicked off in Mumbai from the General Post Office (GPO).

The initiative will entail visiting major cities in Maharashtra and Goa in Western Union and India Post branded vans to enhance the awareness of Western Union Money Transfer Service.

The relationship began in 2001. Since then the two have offered money transfer services to a cross-section of customers and grown to 4200 agent locations throughout India including remote areas like Ladhak and Leh.

“Our successful relationship with India Post is of great significance as it has helped us build closer ties with our customers in India. We further intend to leverage the vast network of India Post to reach out to more people who require fast and secure money transfer service,” says Kapur, Western Union.
