POST PNG face challenges

There are challenging times ahead for one of the country's State own Enterprise (SoE) Post PNG now that writing letters is becoming a thing of the past, but with innovation and good management things should be alright.
That’s the message from the new Board Chairman for Post PNG Mr. Maxwell Paiya when presenting a cheque of K500, 000 divided to the Kumul Consolidated Holdings (KCH) yesterday. Paiya said the amount, though may not be big, it is an indication of a positive growth in a difficult business environment.
Since 2006 postal services worldwide have being declining due advancement in technology such as emails, the social media and mobile phones. But, new technology means changes and as such Post PNG is now more into logistics and going online to conducting its business.
“The real solution and the business opportunity is in providing a highly efficient and reliable airfreight, sea freight and cartage service,” Paiya said.

“We have developed relationships with international logistics partners, we now have in- house customs brokers and bonded airfreight warehouses in Lae and soon in Port Moresby.”
“We are also using new technology to develop e-commerce projects through our website,” he said.
The company’s Acting CEO Mr. Peter Tepure also assures customers that the new board will ensure that this vital service continues and improves more in the future.
Meanwhile, the Chairman of KCH Mr. Pau Nerau urged all SOEs to put more focus into achieving good customer service and good marketing so to see business activity increase.
He said these two areas of business are vital because as a business entity of the government, SoEs have to return a dividend to the shareholder and also provide high quality service to the people.
Nerau when congratulating Post PNG for the payment also assures that KCH stands ready to assist where ever it can to ensure Post PNG grows.
