Through E-Commerce, some 46,000 parcels had been transported to their destination, he added. The minister said the Pakistan Post would soon bring ‘revolutionary changes’ in the Logistic Cell sector adding that a request has been made to the Pakistan Railways to provide one more carriage as the business has flourished from the past.

Saeed stated that Pakistan Post was soon going to launch a project “Made in Pakistan Products” throughout the world adding that the public money had to be spent on the public departments facing downfall instead on education and health sectors.

Electronic Money Order (EMO), e-commerce initiatives and same-day delivery services received excellent feedback from the public. To ensure further ease, the EMO service, also known as post-to-doorstep, was being offered at all General Post Offices as a window service. Consumers could send up to Rs50,000 via EMO.
