In a bid to help people and facilitate better transportation of mail, Pakistan Post has introduced slabs in its registered mail service. These slabs start from 50 grams to 1 kilogram and 2 kilograms.
Talking to the media, a spokesperson of the Pakistan Post said these slabs would ensure that an average mail that weighs 2 kg will be billed as normal letters. They added that for the international mail, the ticketing system won’t be used and the senders will be given money receipts instead.
He elaborated on this and said that since people have to add additional tickets to envelopes, it becomes hard to write the complete address of the recipient. He added that Pakistan Post had been forced to hike the cost for its international mail service as due to COVID-19, the delivery service cost of airplanes had gone up.
The new system will put an end to the usage of tickets on international mail and instead the senders will be given a receipt for money by Pakistan Post for international delivery.
