The Nigerian Postal Service has commended private courier and logistics companies for substantially complying with the registration laws for such companies in the state.

The state postal manager of NIPOST, Enugu, Friday Akoma, gave this indication while speaking with journalists on the sidelines of the 35th Enugu International Trade Fair on Monday.

He said there was a 70 per cent compliance rate by courier and logistics companies in registration and licensing in the state.

Mr Akoma also lauded the union of the courier/logistic association in the state for doing intense work in educating and encouraging its members to follow the due course of the law and formalise their operation in the state.

The manager said that many private courier/logistics operators in the state had used the NIPOST stand at the fair to register, do the right thing and not operate in hiding any more.

“As it stands, we will not use the big sticks on them as we are already communicating with our headquarters on how they are turning out en masse to register and follow the NIPOST guidelines for their operation in the state.

“What we will concentrate more on is further sensitisation and follow-up through their association and facility visits to ensure that all private courier/logistics operators follow due registration, licensing and guidance,” he said.

Mr Akoma also urged Nigerians to patronise NIPOST courier and cargo logistics, saying the service is currently doing exceptionally well.

“NIPOST has a leading edge in courier/cargo logistics through its extensive reach to parts of Nigeria and beyond, as well as its affordability.

“The integrity of the goods being conveyed is maintained and we have the ability to deliver on time and as scheduled,” he said.

The manager, however, warned Nigerians to stop using undocumented and unregistered couriers.

He said, “Just giving a driver a parcel or item without going to the transport company’s office to formalise the courier deal is wrong. What if the parcel or item gets missing or is tampered with? The driver and the owner of the parcel or item will bear the loss since it was not duly registered and logged by the transport/courier company before the movement.”

The manager said the fair afforded NIPOST the opportunity to meet hundreds of Nigerians who had visited their stand to learn more about the unique services of NIPOST.

“Our officials have also made inroads in visiting the stands of companies and exhibitors at the fair to present our unique services meant to enhance their products,” he added.
