A second advantage of the REIMS III agreement is to ensure that terminal charges are cost-based in accordance with the EU Postal Directive and are based on regulated national tariffs in the supplier country. Therefore, this compensation agreement is one of the building blocks of the new INTERCONNECT system, which lays the foundation for a global post-e-commerce distribution network. While REIMS works well for those who have registered for this purpose, participating organizations still have to differentiate themselves from the UPU pricing system for deliveries from countries that are not subject to the agreement. For countries that cannot afford the national interest rates of the relatively prosperous countries of Europe, there is little incentive to register. The INTERCONNECT Remuneration Agreement – Europe (IRA-E) is the first multilateral agreement on the Dues terminal, which covers both letters and parcel products and focuses on e-commerce. After two years of negotiations, European postal operators have reached a new agreement on the payment of terminal fees, which replace the REIMS II agreement in force since 1997. Eisenhower therefore ensured that the commanders-in-chief of each of the three Bundeswehr soldiers were personally transported from Flensburg to Berlin in early May 8; until 10 a.m. .m a.m., when the Allied delegation arrived, until they waited all day when the amended text of the handover was made available to them.  The final law on military surrender was signed on 8 May before midnight at the headquarters of the Soviet military administration in Berlin-Karlshorst, now the site of the German-Russian Museum in Berlin-Karlshorst. As Eisenhower, as commander-in-chief of the Alliance for Western Europe, technically surpassed Zhukov, the signing act, on behalf of the Western Allies, passed to his deputy, Air Marshal Tedder. The Soviet amendments proposed to the reims surrender text were readly accepted by the Western Allies; But the identification and designation of allied signatories proved to be more problematic. French forces operated under the command of SHAEF, but General de Gaulle demanded that General Tassigny sign separately for the French high command; but in this case, it would be politically unacceptable if there were no American signature on the final handover document, whereas the Soviets would not agree with the fact that there are in total more than three Allied signatories – one of them should be Zhukov. After repeated new projects, all of which had to be translated and seized, it was finally agreed that the French and American signatures would be both witnesses.
As a result, the final versions could not be signed until after midnight. As a result, the physical signature was carried out at nearly 1.00 .m. on 9 May, the Central European period; then goes back to May 8 to comply with the Reims agreement and the public announcements of surrender already made by Western leaders.  As a result, all REIMS agreements offer an intercompany pricing system based on costs and quality of service for postal operators.
