Swiss Post's "Urgent Document" service

Hi all

Any of you from Russia or with relatives there will know that Russian post is a joke. Therefore when sending anything important to Russia it's important that Russian Post dosn't have anything to do with your letter or parcel.

UK post offered Parcelforce courier deliveries and I was hoping Swiss Post would have a courier offering. They seem to have something called Urgent Document but don't describe on the website whether it's end to end Swiss or not.

http://www.post.ch/post-startseite/p...ief-kurier.htm

Does anyone know one way or the other please? Their service is multiples less than DHL/UPS (who are quoting 126 CHF and up for a normal sized letter) which makes me doubt that it's not just a priority postal service.

They used to use TNT http://www.tntswisspost.com/de. Suppose they still do. Call them and ask.... It's cheaper because they have less service points available which makes it a bit slower / more complicated on the recipient's side.
