As you may recall, over a year ago the Pakistan Post introduced Urgent Mail-UMS-Cash on Delivery (COD) service in Islamabad. The service has now been extended to the whole country.
Pakistan Post is moving towards digitization of its services. The countrywide launch of UMS-COD service will help Pakistan Post compete with private courier services.
The launch of this service will undoubtedly facilitate customers and will prove to be convenient, given Pakistan Post’s expertise and outreach throughout the country. This is particularly significant if Pakistan Post’s service charges prove to be more competitive than other courier services in the market.
As a public service oriented organisation, Pakistan Post stands committed to serve the public in order to meet the rising expectations of its customers in today’s technology driven market.
The service is now available in over 226 cities and towns that are linked with the Unified Messaging System (UMS) network.
Pakistan Post is one of the oldest courier services in the country. It started out as a Department of Post and Telegraph back in 1947. It later on split and started working as an independent entity.
Currently Pakistan Post has an existing network of 13,000 offices around Pakistan that serve a large amount of households. Apart from just courier services, it also helps the federal and provincial governments in collecting taxes and utility bills.
