NAIROBI, Kenya, Mar 12- The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) and Postal Corporation of Kenya (PCK) have partnered to see that PCK provides logistics and delivery services to the public of Driving Licenses, Logbooks, PSV Badges, and other documents countrywide.
The two bodies through a statement said the operationalization of the new service level agreement will take effect on or before Wednesday 31st March 2021.
NTSA Director General George Njao said the strategic partnership with PCK would help NTSA decongest their premises by having documents delivered to Kenyans.
“The partnership with PCK is aimed at fulfilling a presidential directive of same day service delivery and improving transparency in the management of documents,” said Njao.
The partnership comes at a time when PCK is establishing itself as the ideal delivery partner for Government Agencies.
The Corporation is mandated to provide accessible, affordable and reliable Postal Services to all parts of Kenya as per the PCK Act (1998).
Postmaster General, PCK, Dan Kagwe added that the efforts Posta Kenya is making to respond to the fast-changing consumer needs in adaptation of new technologies.
“This enables the development of suitable last-mile delivery networks, which today are the enablers of economic, social, financial and digital inclusion,” said Kagwe.
He added said PCK has great capacity to handle distribution and logistical services for NTSA and that the partnership would ease customer experience
All Shipment will be processed and tracked through the Corporation’s Post Global System or any other system developed by the Corporation for the purpose.
Consequently, the Corporation will ensure that its office staff use the online system visible to both parties for updates on status of each consignment in real-time up to delivery.
NTSA hopes that PCK’s long-established national network of over 600 branches countrywide and experience in last-mile delivery will be an added advantage.
Postmaster General, PCK, Dan Kagwe confirmed that the Corporation is currently a key partner with the Ministry of Interior and Coordination of National Government and Kenya Medical Supplies Authority (KEMSA) on last mile delivery of passports and distribution of drugs to support the Universal Health Service to citizens among others.
