The Postal Corporation of Kenya (Posta) has launched a cross-border business partnership with the Tanzania Postal Corporation to facilitate ease of doing business and reduce delivery times between the two countries.
The partnership will also offer a platform that will ensure fast and efficient delivery of postal and courier services, with the ability to track and trace from origin to destination between the two countries.
It will now take a postal item leaving Dodoma, Tanzania to Nakuru, Kenya, an average of 3 days. Previously, this would take up to 7 days, or more depending on the distance.
Other benefits of the partnership include enhanced cooperation in e-commerce opportunities, and identification of emerging opportunities and markets for the two corporations to grow business opportunities and generate revenue
The state corporations have also agreed to improve the postal and courier services between the two countries and bring on-board private sector players in the land and aviation sector to improve the time taken and processes involved on clearing import and export items.
