Most of the customers/bulk customers are not willing to attend the post office for booking of their articles. To facilitate this target demographic, Pakistan Post has started a new service as a pilot project.
In order to compete with private couriers, Pakistan Post is planning to introduce the “Labaiq Service” as a pilot project in Lahore.
This service will cater to customers by employing a dedicated force for picking up articles from designated places. In short, couriers will pick up items from the doorstep of the customers in the Lahore Postal Area, according to available documents.
To facilitate users of postal services, an online complaint lodging facility has been established as well.
Monitoring Cells have been set up to track the status and progress of the articles.
In order to capitalize on the Cash on Delivery trend, a new service under the name of “Urgent Mail Service Cash on Delivery” (UMS-COD) has been launched in January 2016 by Pakistan Post as well. This service is available in 226 cities linked with UMS network.
