Jakarta (ANTARA) – State-owned postal company PT Pos Indonesia continues to strengthen its partnerships with individuals and businesses in a bid to expand its logistics services to underdeveloped, border and outermost (3T) areas.
Pos Indonesia’s courier and logistics business manager, Siti Choiriana, noted that Pos Indonesia is expanding its network by increasing the number of agents, couriers and drop-off points as a form of empowerment for micro-enterprises.
“We are doing this, so that 514 districts and cities, with nine thousand sub-districts and 73 thousand villages, can be covered. That is why we are collaborating,” she noted in a statement here on Saturday.
Choiriana explained that Pos Indonesia, as part of the Universal Postal Union (UPU), has reached an agreement with all global postal companies to provide services to the public for sending letters and parcels.
If there is a letter or package from Washington, DC, USA to Puncak Jaya in Papua, then Pos Indonesia must send it, although it is considered a 3T area.
“We, as a company that has an obligation to the international agreement of the UPU, must carry out this task”, she underlined.

The company currently has national and international networks that guarantee the delivery of goods to remote areas of the country and up to 228 destination countries in the world.
Additionally, Pos Indonesia has over 50,000 agents, 27,600 drop points, around 10,000 couriers, 4,594 post offices, 151 warehouses and up to 510 financial service billers.
Choiriana said there are nearly two thousand post offices located in 3T areas.
“We continue to collaborate with other parties, including community, private parties and MSME stakeholders, to add service points,” she said.
