Abuja - The Nigeria Postal Service (NIPOST) has revoked licenses of 15 couriers operators for flouting regulations and operational standards.
NIPOST Courier Regulatory Department (CRD) mentioned the companies as Al-Dawood Agency, A.M Courier, Alternative to Air Cargo Express Services, Parcel Force, IAT Courier Service, Leader Courier, Rich Crystal Courier, Business Mail Express and Dawn Courier Services.
Others include Cleverland & Margates Limited, Delivery Networks Limited, Direct Messages & Service, EDS Express, Funeco Links Transport and Courier Services and Global Parcel Services.
Dr. Simon Emeje, Senior Assistant Postmaster General and Head of CRD, said NIPOST decided to revoked the licenses of the courier operators because they had "lost touch" with the agency's regulations.
"Many of them have not visited our office in the last three to four years. We now consider them a risk the public should continue doing business with. Any firm that has lost touch with what is going on-in terms of regulations and standards, will of course not offer good services to the public. We do not want people patronizing them and then complain of losses, said Emeje.
He urged other courier firms to comply before September 30 or risk losing their licences.
“After that date, any company found delivering parcels or items to clients or customers without obtaining licences, we shall be forced to confiscate the motor-bike or sanction such company. We expect that all courier companies should comply,” Emeje said.
