Egypt Post is working to improve the country’s postal infrastructure by developing 1,500 post offices and deploying 1,000 ATMs during 2021.
This comes as the authority also seeks to expand the deployment of mobile post offices, mail cars, and automatic teller machines (ATM).
Daily News Egypt has obtained Egypt Post’s time plan for developing and modernising post offices, as well as deploying ATMs, postal kiosks, and mobile mail cars during 2021.
According to the plan in 2021, Egypt Post will divide the development of the post offices according to: 100 offices in February; 150 offices every month from March to May; 50 offices in June; 300 offices during August and September; as well as 200 offices every month from October to December.
As for the plan to deploy ATMs, the authority plans to install 1,000 machines during the current year, starting from next June, and according to the authority’s time plan. This will mean that: 400 ATMs will be set up during June and July; 400 machines will be set up between August and November, or 100 machines per month; and 200 machines during the month of December, bringing the total to 1,000 machines.
Also according to the time plan, Egypt Post intends to deploy 30 postal services kiosks during 2021. The plan includes setting up five postal kiosks per month in February, April, June, August, October, and December.
The authority intends to deploy about 60 mobile cars for postal services, of which one car has already been launched in February, along with 10 cars by April and 49 in August.
Last year, Egypt Post developed more than 850 of its post offices, while it deployed about 700 ATM machines. It plans to increase them to 1,700 machines by the end of this year.
