Posta, NTSA extend delivery agreement
The Postal Corporation of Kenya (Posta Kenya) and the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) have extended their delivery agreement which sees PCK provide logistics services to the agency.
The renewed service agreement takes effect on March 31 from which NTSA will deploy a more enhanced model to deliver driving licenses, log books, PSV badges and other documents countrywide.
The renewal of the pair’s partnership comes at a time when the PCK is reading itself to become the principal delivery partner for government agencies even as the parastatal remodels itself to respond to fast-changing consumer needs.
“This enables the development of suitable last-mile delivery networks, which today are the enablers of economic, social, financial and digital inclusion,” said Post Master General Dan Kagwe.
Posta Kenya is backing its extensive brick and mortar network comprising of 600 branches countrywide to be a key cog in the last-mile connectivity especially for the budding e-commerce industry.
On his part, NTSA Director General George Njao is hoping to exploit the pact to fulfill a presidential directive on same day deliveries.
“The rational behind the same day delivery directive was to relieve the pain and bane of Kenyans getting services when they go around the country. We were initially only in our regional offices but have now started moving to the Huduma Centres,” he said.
