NIPOST Applauds Enugu Courier Compliance With Registration

Listen to article

NIPOST lauded private courier and logistics companies operating in Enugu and the southeast for their substantial compliance with the service’s regulations within the state.

NIPOST had stipulated a deadline of February 2024 for illicit courier and logistics enterprises throughout the nation to register and conform to the service’s regulations, with enforcement consequences looming.

Addressing reporters at the 35th Enugu International Trade Fair, Akoma Friday, the Enugu state postal manager of NIPOST, revealed that the service had halted plans for enforcement due to the impressive compliance demonstrated by the companies.

He indicated that courier and logistics firms in the state had achieved a registration and licensing compliance rate ranging from 65 to 70 percent.

Akoma also applauded the courier/logistics association’s union in the state for their dedicated efforts in educating and inspiring their members to abide by legal protocols and legalize their operations within 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.

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 can 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.”

He further mentioned that our representatives have also made progress by exploring the booths of companies and exhibitors at the event to introduce our distinctive offerings designed to amplify their products.

The manager highlighted that the trade show allowed NIPOST to engage with a substantial number of Nigerians who had visited their display, interested in discovering the distinctive services provided by NIPOST.
