Muscat – Atheer
In line with its belief in the importance of international conferences and forums, Oman Post participated in the Last Mile Fulfillment Asia 2018 conference, which was held in Singapore on Thursday and Friday the 15th and 16th March. The conference discussed a number of topics, such as e-commerce, postal services and logistics.
This was the second time that Oman Post took part at what was the fourth edition of this world conference, after previously participating in London. This year more than one hundred speakers participated across six main sessions, with the conference including a two day exhibition boasting over one hundred exhibitors in an area of more than 3,500 square metres. In excess of 2,500 people were in attendance.
Oman Post was represented by CEO Abdul Malik Al Balushi, who presented a paper on the Sultanate and its role as gateway to reaching the Gulf market, going on to speak about its advantages across various fields. Al Balushi explained that the Sultanate’s logistical capabilities and efforts make it a regional logistics centre linking East and West, noting the significance of the Asyad Group, which includes several companies in the Sultanate, including Oman Post.
The CEO said “we aim to reach Southeast Asian vendors and regulators, inform them about opportunities in the Middle East and promote the Sultanate as a gateway to GCC markets in all sectors, namely logistics and postal services.”
Al Balushi added that the company’s participation had earned it considerable attention, with visitors learning about the Sultanate’s rich potential that can enable it to serve as a link between global markets.
He affirmed that Oman Post has always invested in conferences of this kind, so to promote it, as well as in order to meet with and gain from international experts.
Oman Post was established in accordance with Royal Decree No. (48/2005), based on the government’s keenness to privatise the services sector, including the postal sector. Since last year it has seen a significant leap in the development of its customer services.
The company has launched a number of new features and services, including the inauguration of its call centre, online subscription and renewal, extending opening hours at a number of branches and the announcement of services Ersal and Matjar.
