We are sure that our customers will find this a highly efficient channel for dispatching their documents and other mail items, due to our competitive pricing, speedy delivery and partnership with leading airlines."

"We have been putting a lot of efforts into improving our Express EMS product through better pricing and shorter delivery timeframe, as part of a strategy to offer significant value addition to customers. We are pleased to say that our efforts are reflected in increased number of customers for Express EMS service at 118 post offices across the country," Mr. Bin Karam added.
