Changing faces of Pakistan Post

Intense compitition from courier services has, in countries like US and Canada, forced the state owned postal services to re-evaluate their way of working, or plain go out of business.

Pakistan, thankfully, is finally catching up. With services like TCS, OCS and DHL taking up most of the parcel delivery service, Pakistan Post was being left behind. The only use left for the ailing service used to be delivery of letters between urban and rural centers where the newer courier services hadnt reached yet. Now, its coming back with a bang.

Yesterday, at Jinnah Super, i saw what i can only describe as a “Mobile Post Office” setup by PP. Advertising services of Eid Card delivery, Eid Parcel Delivery and opening up of Saving Accounts, they were making the most of providing ease and comfort to the people. For the two hours i was there, i saw the stall packed with people sending out letters and parcels.

Good going PP. A testament to the fact that intense competition amd good management can truly turn even state-owned enterprises around.
