UAE national postal operator Emirates Post has entered a partnership with telecommunications firm ‘du’ to provide billing services throughout the country’s post offices.
Customers of du will now be able to make bill payments at any of Emirates Post’s 120 branches.
Commenting on the news, Abdulla M. Alasham, CEO of Emirates Post, said: “Emirates Post is delighted to add du services to its bouquet of services at Post Offices.
“As a rapidly growing telecom company, du has achieved remarkable growth in just a few years, with a strong focus on customer satisfaction and offering value-for-money services.
“We are delighted to enter into a partnership with du and we are confident this relationship will help du to enhance its reach because of our extensive network of 120 post offices located across the country.”
