You should understand UNCompany's confusion if you requested "USPS." - USPS stands for UNITED STATES Postal Service.

If you said "USPS", they won't know the acronym and will read "UPS."

I wouldn't say that was wholely their fault.

If you want Hong Kong's equivalent of CanadaPost XpressPost or USPS Global Expedited, request "Speedpost EMS".
