Argentine Post - information about carrier

Correo Oficial de la República Argentina Sociedad Anónima, mostly called "Correo Argentino" (given that it was privatized in 1997) is the state-owned company that covers the postal service in Argentina.

On 14 May 1514 the "Correo Mayor de Indias", headquartered in Lima, Peru was produced. Under the required of Carlos III of Spain, the post-service entered into the Viceroyalty of the Río de la Plata depending upon the Kingdom of Spain. With the business activity increasing substantially, it was chosen to develop a post-service in Buenos Aires. Domingo Basavilbaso made the plans to develop a post-service in the region. It would be handled by a senior lieutenant designed by the head office at Lima.

On 1 July 1769, the service began its activities officially. Through the years it encompassed the cities of Potosí and Santiago (Chile). Bruno Ramírez was the first postman of Argentine post, when the profession did not still exist in the nation. Ramírez officially became a post worker on 14 September 1771. Years later that would be promulgated as the Day of Postman in Argentina.

Post-service in Argentina played an essential role throughout the May Revolution due to the fact that of orders and reports from the Primera Junta were dispersed through letters. The very first manager of the service was Melchor de Albín, created in June 1810.

In 1826, during the presidency of Bernardino Rivadavia, the service was nationalized by a Law passed by the Congress of Provincias Unidas del Río de la Plata. Since then, the post-service was named "Dirección General de Correos, Postas y Caminos", being Juan Manuel de Luca in charge. De Luca stayed for 32 years, being prospered by Gervasio Antonio de Posadas. It was Posadas who positioned the first post boxes in the city of Buenos Aires, apart of writing the rules for postmen and establishing lower prices for post rates.

Eduardo Olivera was picked as a director in 1874 changing Posadas. Olivera wrote the brand-new guidelines and sent a task for the Law of renewing of post services, n ° 816. During successive administrations, money orders, carrier services, registered letters and stated values were implemented. After being a company depending upon Ministries of Finances and Interior, in June 1944 the Government of Argentina established the post-service autonomy, calling it "Dirección General de Correos y Telecomunicaciones" (National Direction of Post and Telecommunication).

Due to the increasing need for post services in Argentina, in 1888 the Post Office director, Ramón Cárcano, proposed a particular building as a seat for the postal service. French architect Norbert-Auguste Maillart created the structure, inspiring in the City Hall Post Office of New York City.

Functions began in 1889, not being finished until 1928 when the structure was officially inaugurated by the president of Argentina Marcelo T. de Alvear.

The "Empresa Nacional de Correos y Telégrafos" (ENCoTel) (in English: "Post and Telegraph National Company") was a state-owned business established in 1972 for post, money and telegraph services. Throughout the National Reorganisation Process started in 1976, personal companies were allowed to participate in post services, although the universal post services continued being managed by the state post.

In 1997, throughout Carlos Menem's administration, ENCoTel was privatized. The service was given in concession to "Correo Argentino", a business part of Sociedad Macri (SOCMA), owned by entrepreneur Franco Macri. Because way, Argentina turned into one of the first nations to privatize its post service. The contract of concession set a term of 30 years, also developing that SOCMA would pay a six-monthly rent of A$ 51.6 million to the state. Nonetheless, the consortium built up a financial obligation of nearly US$ 900 million to private lenders and the state as well. In September 2001, SOCMA participated in a reorganization proceeding.

The Palacio de Correos was declared National Heritage by Law 12,665 in 1997 considering its architectural style and historic importance. In 2002 the structure ceased operations as a seat of Correo Argentino. Only a small part of the building continued its activities as a post workplace and sale of stamps, on Sarmiento street. The remainder of the structure ended up being non-active until it became the Néstor Kirchner Cultural Centre.
