Hongkong Post will adjust its mail delivery services with effect from May 16. While a full range of mail delivery services currently provided from Monday to Friday will be maintained, only express delivery, viz. Speedpost and Local CourierPost service, will be available on Saturday. The post office counter services and other postal services, which include pick-up services of Speedpost and Local CourierPost items, street posting boxes, and iPostal Stations collection will remain unchanged.
A spokesman for Hongkong Post today (April 29) said, "With the development of information technologies, email, Short Message Service and mobile applications have become major means of communication. Almost 90 per cent of the ordinary mail processed by Hongkong Post are commercial items. The operation mode of the business sector has also changed in view of the gradual implementation of a five-day work week in many commercial enterprises.
"On the other hand, Hongkong Post has been actively expanding its network of self-service posting and collection facilities in recent years. More than 140 iPostal Station self-collection facilities have been set up in various districts in Hong Kong to provide convenient postal services that enable the public to collect mail items at the time and location of their choice. Therefore, the adjustment of the mail delivery services at this time is an appropriate arrangement."
