Naval Supply Systems Command Global Logistics Support (NAVSUP GLS) postal products and services recently facilitated mail services for the first time to Antarctica. Before February 2015, military mail was facilitated by the Joint Military Postal Agency (JMPA) via the mail routing instruction (MRI), taking into account ships' movements and dates. Now, the NAVSUP GLS routing center has expanded the mail delivery process. The NAVSUP GLS routing center is now the primary hub for mail routing for the Navy, Coast Guard, USNS (Military Sealift Command), and embarked Marines. One hundred percent of all Navy mail routing goes through the NAVSUP GLS routing center, which conducts the research to determine the best route for the mail. Meanwhile, domestic military mail transportation is coordinated with the U.S. Postal Service.
