India Post Cashes in on E-retail Boom

BHUBANESWAR:  The Department of Posts has begun to rapidly upscale its parcel operations to cash in on e-retail boom in the country. It is all set to expand the integrated parcel and booking hubs across major locations while establishing a mechanised nodal delivery system soon, Union Secretary Kavery Banerjee said here on Tuesday.

Riding on the e-commerce growth, parcel and order delivery to customers through India Post has seen a major upswing in recent years. The parcel operations have, in fact, emerged the major revenue earner for the Department as traditional postal services have almost been pushed to oblivion on the onset of emails and mobile phones.
