Botswana Post to resume home mail box delivery project

BotswanaPost has announced that they will resume home mail box delivery project beginning of August. The project had been temporarily suspended as the organization was undergoing operational efficiency exercises.

The home mail box delivery project first commenced as a pilot project in February with the main objective of offering deliveries to physical mail boxes outside customers’ houses instead of postal addresses. 

Addressing the media recently, BotswanaPost Chief Executive Officer Cornelius Ramatlhakwane confirmed that the campaign will resume as part of the organisation’s drive to ensure that Batswana have closer access to postal services. Most houses in Block 7 and 8 already have the mailboxes which were erected when the project took off. BotswanaPost will roll out the campaign on a national basis, but it will do so through a gradual, phased approach.  

Last month BotswanaPost launched another inter-postal money transfer corridor with postal services in Swaziland and Lesotho, bringing to four the postal options for sending and receiving money in Southern Africa. The initiative went live on June 1, 2016, and is meant to bridge and expand the corridor network in the SADC postal entities which aids in easier access for people travelling in the bloc.
