Postal Services Act amended in Singapore

On Monday (5 April) the Postal Services Act was amended in Singapore to grant the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) powers to deploy and operate the islandwide  parcel locker network, reports Strait Times.

It comes at a time when e-commerce use and parcel volumes have skyrocketed, in part due to the pandemic.

The nationwide parcel locker network that is being rolled out will be run by the Government so that it is neutral and freely accessible to all delivery service providers and consumers, Senior Minister of State for Communications and Information Sim Ann said in Parliament on Monday (April 5) .

Safety measures will be put in place to ensure that the lockers remain secure through both technology and laws that spell out offences such as tampering with the lockers.
