PHLPost set to buy more GPS-equipped delivery vehicles
Postmaster General Josie Dela Cruz has announced that the Philippine Postal Corporation has allocated funding to buy delivery vans equipped with GPS technology. Dela Cruz told local media that PHLPost has earmarked P100 million (US$2.3 million) to buy more than 130 vans. The GPS system will enable the company to track mail and provide clients with delivery updates via SMS.
The Postmaster General said that PHLPost’s intention is to raise its profile in the Philippine’s courier service market. As reported by Post&Parcel last week, Dela Cruz has revealed that PHLPost is aiming to launch a programme of “improved express products and services” – and the new delivery vans will be part of this push.
