Emirates Post reinstates postal services to India
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 16 - 06 - 2020

Emirates Post has re-started operations to India, providing a cost-effective option to UAE residents and businesses to ship goods to the world's seventh largest economy.
The move marks the continuance of all services — Economy Mail, Standard Mail, Registered Mail, Standard Packets, Standard Parcels and Express Parcels — after a period of limited operations in the wake of restrictions imposed on the travel and transport due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The reopened channel provides UAE's large Indian expat population a convenient way to send shipments, including household goods, personal electronic items and gifts back home. Emirates Post is also offering saver bundles for parcels of 10 kg at AED162 and 20 kg at AED262.
"As the world cautiously opens back up, re-establishing channels of exchange with our key global partners like India will be critical to strengthening socio-economic growth once again," stated Abdulla Mohammed Al Ashram, Group CEO of Emirates Post Group.
"India has always been one of our key markets, thanks to the large expat community in the UAE. Last year alone, we moved 180 tons of small packets and parcels all across India and we expect this to grow year-on-year.
"As we go into the second half of the year, we are looking forward to supporting UAE-based businesses as well as individuals with a seamless and speedy system to send essential and non-essential goods."
In partnership with India Post, Emirates Post has established a wide network all across the country, including the main metropolitan areas of New Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Chennai as well as cities and towns across Kerala, which receives the highest volume of post from the UAE.
In tandem with the reopening of the route, Emirates Post continues to employ stringent measures as part of its response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Health and safety protocols include regular sanitization of all branches, sorting and delivery centers, offices, delivery vehicles, including all mail and parcel items that enter the facilities.
It has also ensured that all its couriers have their temperature checked daily and are equipped with the personal protective equipment needed to conduct contactless shipments. — SG
