Pakistan Post has launched ‘Same Day Delivery Service’. It is a new delivery service specifically for delivering goods & services in Islamabad & Rawalpindi on the same day. So in the twin cities & nearby areas, the residents would be able to send goods up to 20 kg via this service, as confirmed by the official sources. The business community of the cities can benefit from this service.
In order to help the clients, Pakistan Post has introduced specific desks at the chosen post offices of both the cities. Through SMS the clients will be kept up to date on the status of their mail. The goods, parcel or gift will be sent to their dear ones on the same day they did the delivery.
From 11:30 daily the citizens of twin cities can avail this service.
The charges for the posts are Rs 150 on the first 500-gram weight. After that, on every 500-gram weight Rs 50 is added to the total weight.
