Customers of Emirates Postal Group (EPG) can now have document parcels delivered to Europe and the US within 2-3 days through a new Express (EMS) service. Previously they could only have their parcels guaranteed to be delivered within 3-5 days.
The new offer applies to customers who wish to send parcels of less than 500 grammes to the US and Europe. These can be sent for prices as low as AED 108 per parcel, a similar rate to that offered for the longer transit time.
“Emirates Post is delighted to offer our customers this superior Express EMS service at an attractive price that beats all our competitors,” said Chief Commercial Officer of EPG, Mr. Ibrahim Bin Karam. “This offer is part of our efforts to raise the bar on document delivery service to Europe and United States as well as across the globe. We are sure our customers will appreciate this service.”
Bin Karam added: “We have been putting great efforts into improving our Express EMS product through better pricing and shorter delivery timeframe, as part of a strategy to offer great value addition to customers. We are pleased to say that our success is demonstrated by a significant increase in number of customers for Express EMS and our parcel services that are available at 118 post offices across the country.”
Emirates Postal Group has said that this new offering is because it has been strengthening partnerships with a number of airlines – notably, Emirates and Etihad. In doing so it has managed to get more favourable terms for its international deliveries.
