Emirates Post targets 20% increase in international parcels in 2014
Emirates Post targets 20% increase in international parcels in 2014

Strategic partnership with Emirates airline and competitive rates boost growth of parcels to Indian subcontinent and Europe

Dubai, May 27, 2014: Emirates Post Group has targeted a 20% rise in international parcel volumes in 2014, driven by lower rates, increased demand from expatriates and faster delivery times due to a strategic partnership with Emirates airline.

This follows a 10% growth in international parcels and EMS (Express Mail Service) shipments in 2013, to destinations mainly in Europe, Indian Subcontinent, China, the Philippines and GCC countries. The delivery period to most markets has now been reduced by two to three days. An international parcel booked through Emirates Post is thus delivered in 5 to 7 days, at a cost that is just a fraction of what courier companies charge. 

“We have made several enhancements to our international parcel and EMS product. This should come as great news to the expatriate population in the UAE, especially in view of the approaching summer holiday period when people can send stuff to their families through post, instead of paying exorbitant rates for extra baggage,” said Mr. Ibrahim Bin Karam, Chief Commercial Officer, Emirates Post Group.

In the first two months of 2014, parcels booked at Emirates Post offices saw an increase of 14 %, and EMS witnessed a jump of 25 %, compared to the corresponding period in 2013, Mr. Bin Karam said.

Market-wise, Emirates Post is offering real value for money for those sending parcels to foreign destinations. 

Parcel rates to Indian destinations have been reduced by 20% from May 1, 2014.  Customers now pay Dhs8 per kilo for the surface (SAL) Parcel Service and Dhs13 per kilo for the Air Parcel Service. There are no weight restrictions. Customers are charged on a per-kilo basis. Emirates Post also runs a speedy EMS (Express Mail Service) to India, which charges Dhs75 for the first half kilo, with delivery within 3 days.

Emirates Post has also reduced its parcel rates to all destinations in Europe, and accelerated transit times through a strategic agreement with Emirates airline. In addition, the speedy EMS service to Europe, which charges AED 100 for the first half kilo, assures delivery within 3 days. This service is ideal for urgent documents and far cheaper than most courier companies.

The parcel rates to all destinations in the Philippines have been reduced to Dhs8 per kilo for the surface (SAL) Parcel Service and Dhs13 per kilo for its Air Parcel Service. There are no weight restrictions. Customers will be charged on a per-kilo basis, irrespective of the total weight. The EMS Service to the Philippines charges Dhs62.00 for the first half kilo, with delivery within 3 days.
