Q-Post and FedEx yesterday signed a memorandum of understanding for the launch of Qpex, the new courier service to be offered by Q-post.
Q-post, the country’s national postal and courier service, hopes that consumers will stand to gain from the signing of the agreement between Q-Post and FedEx, which will enable Q-Post to handle the services currently being delivered by the global logistics giant at what it described as “rates lower than what is currently available in the market”.
Q-Post chairman and chief executive Ali Mohamed Al Ali said the new service, likely to be launched in two months, will have the assurance of on-time delivery, insurance and customer satisfaction.
“FedEx is the biggest logistical and express courier service in the world, and we are pleased to be working in partnership with them,” said Al Ali, adding, “we will deliver express and courier services in locations such as Al Khor on behalf of FedEx, because we already have post offices there, while they provide us with training for our personnel and software to further improve our services.”
“FedEx has the biggest airline fleet in the world, and using their wide network, we will be able to provide customers, both individuals and companies, quick access through our offices and own online web portal,” added Al Ali
The service would be initially available only at the main post office and the Teyseer Post Office, and will then be extended to the rest of the post offices.
