Subscribers of Emirates Post's private post boxes in the UAE will now have the option to renew their annual post box subscription online through its web site launched yesterday. The new web site was officially launched by Abdullah Lootah, Under-Secretary of Ministry of Communications, at a function held at the Fairmont Hotel in Dubai to announce the Postal Corporation's financial results for 2002.

Abdullah Ibrahim Al Daboos, Director-General of Emirates Post, said that besides giving information on all aspects of the corporation, the web site would provide facilities like renting and renewal of post box subscription, tracking and tracing postal items (registered mail, EMS and parcels), calculating postages, ordering postal products (stamps, registered envelopes, aerogramme and parcel boxes) and downloading contract forms.

Many of the postal services can now be accessed online, he said. Al Daboos added that services involving cash payment, such as payment for renewal or renting of private post boxes, purchase of postage stamps, parcels, among others, can be made online using credit cards, according to a report in "Khaleej Times.” Al Daboos noted that the new interactive web site forms a part of Emirates Post's commitment to meet tomorrow's needs today, thereby sustaining a competitive edge. "In a world that is becoming increasingly dependent on the Internet and information technology, Emirates Post is proud to offer consumers every bit of information and service at the touch of a key."
