Last week, German ambassador to Pakistan, Martin Kobler, sent a small gift to his family in Berlin.
Well, today he was thoroughly overwhelmed by the fact that for just Rs.200, his parcel had safely reached home within seven days.
He took to Twitter to share this with his fans and applauded Pakistan Post’s service.
“Remember I sent a gift to my family in Berlin with unregistered mail for just 200pkr? Enthusiastic, that it arrived just in 7 days!,” he wrote on Twitter.

The German envoy admired the government, in general, and Murad Saeed, in particular, for making Pakistan Post a reliable service again.

Federal Minister for Communication and Postal Services has vowed to turn the loss-mounting department into a profitable one.
To do so, the national postal service, under his leadership, first launched Urgent Mailing system in October 2018 which promises nationwide parcel delivery in 12 hours at half the rates charged by its competitors.
And now in early January, the department has announced ‘export parcel service’ which offers parcel delivery to foreign countries in 72 hours. The charges for this service are about five percent less than competitor private companies.
