Pos Malaysia starts automated, mobile services

KUALA LUMPUR: Pos Malaysia is going both automated and mobile.
To reach out to more customers and for their convenience, it is launching two new services, namely the country's first-of-its-kind Post-Automated-Machine (PAM) and the Pos-on-Wheels, or mobile post office.

Pos Malaysia chairman Tan Sri Aseh Che Mat said a PAM pilot project was being carried out at the Kuala Lumpur General Post Office and it was expected to be expanded to other locations nationwide in stages.

"PAM is similar to a bank's ATM (automated teller machine) but in that it is integrated with postal service.

"The response from the public has been very encouraging and we plan to deploy another 30 PAM units this year.

"Our target is to have a PAM in every post office nationwide. It will run round the clock in due course," he said here yesterday.

PAM services include purchase of stamps, posting of non-standard letter (up to 2kg), posting of domestic PosLaju items (up to 2kg), posting of domestic PosParcel and PosDaftar items (up to 2kg) and top-up for Standing Order Deposit Account (Soda).
