Murad Saeed formally inaugurated the services at the Pakistan Post head office in a ceremony. Director General of Pakistan Post Naseer Ahmed Khan, Secretary Postal Services Pir Baksh Khan Jamali and Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Media Affairs Iftikhar Durrani were present on the occasion as well.
Speaking on the ceremony, Murad Saeed said that Pakistan has found honest leadership under Imran Khan. Taking about the new service, Saeed added that it has been launched as a pilot project in Lahore, Sialkot and Faisalabad. Parcels up to 30 kilograms can be booked with this service and sent to six countries: Australia, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, Japan, United Kingdom, and Saudi Arabia.
