Mal­taPost cel­e­brates World Post Day 2016

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

On 9 Oc­to­ber, the postal com­mu­nity all around the world cel­e­brated World Post Day. Just as in all ser­vice in­dus­tries, the cus­tomer has al­ways been the main fo­cus of postal services world­wide and in to­day’s busy life­style cus­tomers are seek­ing more flex­i­ble and per­son­alised services. This was out­lined by the Uni­ver­sal Postal Union’s Di­rec­tor Gen­eral Bishar Ab­di­rah­man Hus­sein in his mes­sage for the 2016 World Post Day.

Con­scious of this, Mal­taPost has sought to sup­port on­line busi­nesses and e-shop­pers alike through the pro­vi­sion of a va­ri­ety of de­liv­ery services specif­i­cally tai­lored with the cus­tomers’ needs in mind.

This year has seen thou­sands of Mal­tese con­sumers shop­ping with SendOn from their favourite in­ter­na­tional on­line brands par­tic­u­larly those which do not ship di­rectly to Malta.

To con­tinue im­prov­ing on the cus­tomer ex­pe­ri­ence, Mal­taPost launched Easipik, a par­cel locker so­lu­tion for busy shop­pers who are rarely at home to re­ceive their items. With Easipik, cus­tomers may col­lect their SendOn shop­ping 24/7 from a num­ber of lock­ers which are con­ve­niently lo­cated around Malta.

Mal­taPost also in­creased its re­tail net­work with new post of­fices in Swieqi, Smart City, Ħal Lija, and Flo­ri­ana and con­tin­ued to in­crease its par­cel col­lec­tion points with the in­tro­duc­tion of new sub post of­fices in Malta and Gozo.

Through­out 2016, Mal­taPost is­sued stamp sets with var­i­ous themes and com­mem­o­rat­ing global and lo­cal events such as the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro and 450th an­niver­sary of the foun­da­tion of Val­letta. Mal­taPost also pro­duced pres­ti­gious col­lec­tions in sil­ver foil such as ‘The Grand­mas­ters Col­lec­tion 1530 -1798’ and the sil­ver foil replica com­mem­o­rat­ing the 100th an­niver­sary of the birth of Du­minku Mintoff.

In June 2016, Mal­taPost in­au­gu­rated the Malta Postal Mu­seum in Arch­bishop Street, Val­letta. Through the dis­play of ob­jects, nar­ra­tion of sto­ries and in­ter­ac­tive ex­pe­ri­ences the mu­seum seeks to re­late the im­por­tant role played by the post. Se­lec­tively col­lected and pro­fes­sion­ally dis­played, the ob­jects tell the story of Malta’s ex­pe­ri­ences of war, gov­er­nance, trade, love and pol­i­tics.
