PO Box rental and EziMail

Emirates Post Group Holding (EPGH) has launched new improved PO Box rental and EziMail bundle services for corporate customers, with enhanced mail pick-up and delivery services as well as value added services.

The bundles are being offered leveraging the combined expertise of Emirates Post, the region’s leading postal corporation and Empost, UAE’s national courier company.

As of January 1, 2011, all Emirates Post and Empost corporate customers benefit from a new range of five different bundle offers designed to meet corporate customers’ needs, complemented by a host of value added services, including free courier coupons, mailbags, direct mail discounts and SMS notifications.

Under the new plan, Emirates Post and Empost have integrated two key services – PO Box rental and EziMail delivery – to form new bundles that are more convenient for the customer. Five bundles have been created to enable companies to select a suitable category, depending on their mail volumes, ranging from PO Box Light, the most basic of categories, to EziMail Gold, which will offer 50 per cent discount on unaddressed mail up to 40,000 pieces in addition to other benefits.

PO Box rental charges for individual customers have not been changed. However, individuals can also subscribe to the bundles after paying the fees, if they feel the need for such services.
