EMS is an acronym for Express Mail Service for an international delivery service. This service can be used for any items, including documents and merchandises.  EMS is supported by the largest postal network and provides express delivery service to countries all over the world. 

In most nations, the country’s postal administration governs the EMS while the international express delivery services are governed by the EMS Cooperative. As of now, EMS is offered by more than 200 countries and territories worldwide. 

EMS tracking number is alpha-numeric code. It starts with two letters, followed by nine digits and a two-letter country code. Code of the country indicates the origin country of the shipment. For example, EE123456789MY, with MY as code, indicates Malaysia as country of origin.
