Internet competition has had a major impact on the demand for postal services. Even before we moved into the digital age and have our fancy electronic way of communication, postal services are a necessity. It allows people to send just about anything to any part of the world. Though we have an advanced way of reaching out to people, postal services will always remain relevant to us.
Even though it may seem like it is ebbing, many people are still using the service, they prefer it more than anything else. For them, it is safer, and though the delivery may take three to five days, they still choose it.
Many people may be curious why it still exists today with all the electronic devices just around the corner- which is to say the easiest and fastest way to communicate. Some sentimental people say it is because receiving something from postal is better and it shows the effort of the person giving the mail. But postal is not only about letters, but it is also used today as a way of sending packages and for some countries, but it is also the cheapest way to do so.
On the technical side, postal services have long been present in the society and for that reason, it is hard to tumble down, especially that many are attached to the services offered by the sector. It is reliable and they offer the best services. Another thing is that it offers services to an under-developed country who haven’t had the chance to have any other mode of communication. For those countries, it may take some time for them to have access to the modern way of communicating, so postal services are important to them.
Postal services are also valuable to the government of some countries. They use the services to coordinate with other offices- to send notices, memos, and other documents. It is useful especially to places that are hard to reach. They event sent packages and parcels from one post office to another. It is their way of communicating to local offices and their subordinates in remote areas.
For the above reasons, postal services still have a long way to go. As long as there is someone using their services it will remain intact. And as long as someone sees its importance it will never cease to exist.
