KUALA LUMPUR, Tuesday – Since October 2013, Pos Malaysia Berhad (Pos Malaysia) had conducted a survey in the form of distributing address postcards to gauge the public’s feedback on the proposed new address format in selected areas of Kuala Lumpur, Selangor and Seremban in light of rapid residential and business development in the said areas.

The outcome of the survey suggests the majority appears not keen on the proposed change. Pos Malaysia, your designated postal operator will henceforth continue with the present address system which the public is accustomed to and will continue to strive in improving its delivery services.

Pos Malaysia values the feedback given and we strongly believe in the importance of listening to our customers. Pos Malaysia would like to assure the residents that the delivery of all postal articles will remain using the existing mailing address and postcode. Nevertheless, for those who had taken the initiative to change their address as proposed, such as with the National Registration Department, please rest assured that postal articles will continue to be delivered as usual as Pos Malaysia’s system is able to cater for that as well.

Pos Malaysia would like to take this opportunity to thank its customers and the public for partaking in the survey providing the essential feedback as well as for the continued support, trust and confidence in the company. Pos Malaysia will strive to excel and deliver its best.

TAWAU, SABAH, 20 February 2014 – Pos Malaysia Berhad’s (Pos Malaysia) Postal Transformation Plan in Sabah & Sarawak (PTPSS) continues with the handover of the community mailbox to the local residents and the appointment of the Posmen Komuniti by the Deputy Minister of Communication and Multimedia, YB Dato’ Jailani Johari in Pulau Sebatik, Sabah today.

The PTPSS is a strategic initiative by Pos Malaysia to improve the efficiency and quality of its delivery service in the rural areas for the two respective states in a holistic manner.

As part of the continuation of the initiative, the community mailbox built in Kg. Sg. Pukul in Pulau Sebatik will help provide approximately 1,200 residents with secured and convenience way to post and receive letters.

“The setting up of the community mailbox and introduction of Posmen Komuniti service is part of our plan to transform as well as enhance the last mile delivery system in hard-to-reach areas in Sabah and Sarawak,” said Dato’ Iskandar Mizal Mahmood, Group Chief Operating Officer of Pos Malaysia.

“The implementation of the PTPSS since its inception in 2010 is also part of the National Postal Strategy to extend our delivery network further and increase the penetration rate to rural areas in Sabah and Sarawak. With the support from the Ministry of Communications and Multimedia and the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) we believe that this initiative will enable us to achieve the target reach benchmark and ensure that the Rakyat will benefit from our improved quality of delivery service,” Dato’ Iskandar added.

While the setting up of the community mailbox is for the villagers with complete mailing address, Posmen Komuniti service was introduced to reach residents in more scattered and remote locations with incomplete mailing address. Posmen Komuniti is tasked to collect mail from the supervising post office in Tawau town before delivering it from house to house at least 3 times a week to their respective areas and is appointed from among the local people.

Currently, there are three Posmen Komuniti appointed in Pulau Sebatik who provide service to three villages namely Kg. Mantadak Baru, Kg. Bergosong Besar and Kg. Sg. Pukul with approximate total population of 3,182 people.

The continuation of PTPSS until 2016 will enable Pos Malaysia to expand the scope of coverage for delivery of mails to the rural areas, increasing the penetration rate from an average of 65% to 90% in both states. In addition to that, another positive effort that Pos Malaysia has implemented and will continue to develop is the standardization of the addressing system for the rural areas, ensuring that mail items are correctly delivered to the recipients.

This is also part of Pos Malaysia’s Corporate Responsibility efforts towards ensuring all Malaysians to have better access to its services as well as enhancing the socio-economic development of the people in rural areas by providing them with job opportunities.

Pos Malaysia’s Official Reply to The Malay Mail Article Titled
“Flares, smoke bombs sold online and sent via PosLaju” 
Dated 14 May 2014

At present, there are existing legislations in force in Malaysia that prohibit and/or control amongst others, the handling, transportation and/or possession of explosives and/or explosive substances. The legislations include the following:

undefined

In Pos Malaysia’s case, the Post Office Rules 1947, which governs the handling and/or transmission of postal articles, prohibits senders from using postal services to send such articles. The said rule states as follows:

undefined

The prohibition to send dangerous goods such as explosives is also contained in the terms and conditions of PosLaju’s Consignment Notes. The list of the said prohibited items as listed below are displayed at post offices and PosLaju centers, including our websites.

undefined

PosLaju’s Consignment Notes also makes it mandatory for the senders to declare the contents of the article to be delivered especially to ensure the article does not contain any hazardous or prohibited items.

These measures are consistent with the international best practices of postal and courier operators.

Pos Malaysia always endeavours in exercising due care in its operations. In this instance, such care has been observed, implemented and complied with by Pos Malaysia/PosLaju. There was no reasonable ground for PosLaju to suspect that the package would pose any physical danger to other persons or property.

Do note that Pos Malaysia cannot open any postal article. Pos Malaysia may only do so under strict requirements of the law.

KUALA LUMPUR, 4 September 2014 – Pos Malaysia Berhad (Pos Malaysia) posted record revenue of RM1.43 billion, for the financial year ended 31 March 2014. This is equivalent to an increase of 12.4% or RM157.4 million against the previous year.

In a statement issued today, POS Malaysia said the strong revenue performance reflects improvement across the board in the key segments and courier business as well as international operations. Its operating expenses stood at RM1.22 billion, accounting for 85.8% of total revenue compared against 87.3% recorded in the previous year, translating into improved operating margin to 14.2% from 12.7% in the same period a year ago.

Meanwhile, its Profit After Tax (PAT) for the full year settled at RM157.7 million, a 4.2% improvement over the previous year. However, excluding the RM12.5 million tax credit received in the corresponding financial year, PAT would be higher by 13.6%.

Pos Malaysia’s Group Chief Executive Officer, Dato’ Iskandar Mizal Mahmood said the enhanced performance is primarily attributed to improvement in productivity and cost controls following the on-going transformation exercise.

“We remain focused on enhancing topline growth, while ramping up efforts to boost operational efficiency. We shall intensify efforts to enhance service quality and improve our processes.”

KUALA LUMPUR, Monday - Pos Malaysia Berhad (Pos Malaysia) would like to warn the public that the company has detected an illegal sale and distribution of fake PosLaju prepaid envelopes in the market. Users of such counterfeit products will risk their items not being accepted for delivery and could also face legal consequences.

In the last few months, a special task force comprising Pos Malaysia’s postal inspectors have been set up to examine the possibility that a network engaged in the sale and distribution of counterfeit Poslaju prepaid envelopes might be active in the country. The investigation has so far resulted in the seizure of 1,300 pieces of fake PosLaju prepaid envelopes of various sizes.

“The offence of producing, distributing, selling and possession of fictitious and counterfeit postal products is punishable under Section 65 of the Postal Services Act 2012 when if convicted, is liable to a fine of up to RM500,000 or imprisonment for up to 5 years or both,” said a Pos Malaysia’s spokesperson.

Pos Malaysia takes this matter seriously and wishes to advise the public to be vigilant and purchase genuine PosLaju prepaid envelopes only at post offices, PosLaju centres and PosLaju authorized agents.

“Pos Malaysia has also requested the assistance of Polis Di Raja Malaysia (PDRM) and the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) to help identify, nab the culprits and bring an end to this illegal activity which has had a huge impact on the company’s business,” he added.

The company is constantly working to stay ahead of counterfeiters and as part of its commitment to protect its customers, more safety features for its products will be introduced soon to combat this crime.

Pos Malaysia encourages the public to report any suspected illicit activity of manufacturing, distributing and selling of counterfeit Pos Malaysia’s products by calling PosLine 1-300-300-300 or email to care@pos.com.my.or report to the nearest Pos Malaysia outlet.

KUALA LUMPUR, Friday - Pos Malaysia Berhad (“Pos Malaysia”) will run its own internal investigations following newspaper reports on the alleged delivery of Ketum leaves via PosLaju recently and on the allegation of possible involvement of its employees in the syndicate.

A company’s spokesperson said Pos Malaysia views this allegation serious as the company has zero tolerance policy towards employees who violate any laws. He said Pos Malaysia will continue to support and give full cooperation to the authority in their investigations.

At present, there are existing legislations in force in Malaysia that prohibit and/or control the handling, transportation and/or possession of Ketum leaf (scientific name of Mitragynine) which falls within the Poisons List issued by the Minister of Health in accordance with the powers accorded under Section 6 of the Poisons Act 1952.

In Pos Malaysia’s case, the Post Office Rules 1947, which governs the handling and/or transmission of postal articles, prohibits senders from using postal services to send such articles. The said rule states as follows:
“poisons, including any preparations, solutions, compounds, mixture or natural substances containing poisonous substances unless sent in accordance with the written law relating to poisons” - Post Office Rules 1947 10 (a) (vii)

He added, “PosLaju’s Consignment Notes also makes it mandatory for senders to declare the contents of the article to be delivered to ensure the article does not contain any hazardous or prohibited items. Pos Malaysia however cannot open any postal consignment. Pos Malaysia may only do so under strict requirements of the law as stipulated under Section 53 of the Postal Services Act 2012.”

Pos Malaysia welcomes the public to report any information on suspected illicit activity and mistreatment of postal articles. Any enquiries or comments can be channelled through our Customer Care at 1-300-300-300 as well as via e-mail at care@pos.com.my. or contact the nearest post offices.

KOTA KINABALU, SABAH (Saturday) – Pos Malaysia Berhad (“Pos Malaysia”) today launched its 3,110th post box and sets a new entry in the Malaysia Book of Records by becoming the first post box on highest altitude at 3,289 meters above sea level.

The post box is located at the Pendant Hut which is reachable by climbing four to six hours from Kinabalu Park, Malaysia’s first World Heritage Site, known as the main entrance to the majestic Mount Kinabalu (4,095 meters).

The launch of the post box was graced by YB Dato' Jailani Johari, Deputy Minister of Communications and Multimedia Malaysia in Kota Kinabalu this morning.

“We are proud that this is the first post box installed at such a height, and more importantly it will help put Malaysia on the world map,” said Encik Azlan Shahrim, Covering Group Chief Executive Officer of Pos Malaysia. “This initiative would provide climbers and tourists scaling the peaks of Mount Kinabalu with the unique experience of mailing their postcards and letters from this altitude.”

Pos Malaysia also hopes that the initiative will further promote and increase the popularity of Mount Kinabalu to the world. A special self-inking date stamp with Mount Kinabalu and its altitude print is available at Ranau Post Office as the cancellation mark. The post box will become a new attraction for tourists where they can commemorate their climb by posting letters and postcards at the height of 3,270 meters.

This unique initiative gets the full support from national postal sector regulator, the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) as it combines the elements of postal services and tourism.

A dedicated postman is assigned to collect postal articles from the post box at 12pm on a daily basis during weekdays. All postal articles will then be collected by a Pos Malaysia shuttle van from Mountain Torq’s office, a Pos Malaysia licensed agent at 10am on the next day for processing at Ranau Post Office.

To find out more about other services offered by Pos Malaysia customers are welcomed to contact PosLine at 1-300-300-300 from 8.30 a.m. to 8.00 p.m. on Monday to Friday and from 8.30 a.m. to 5.00 p.m. on Saturday except on the 1st Saturday of the month and Public Holidays.

KOTA BHARU, Thursday – Pos Malaysia Berhad (“Pos Malaysia”) and the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (“MCMC”) today relaunched postal services that were affected in the floods in December last year.

 

The reopening of the Dabong Pos Mini which was severely affected was officiated by Mohamed Zaidi Abdul Karim, director of Postal Affairs and Digital Signature Department, MCMC. Pos Malaysia was represented by Azlan Shahrim, Covering Group Chief Executive Officer. Also present was YB Dato’ Ramzi Abdul Rahman, Dabong state assemblyman.

 

Pos Malaysia, one of the most extensive retail networks in Malaysia with over 1,000 touch points nationwide, including Pos Malaysia outlets, Pos Minis, Pos24 (Self Service Terminals), Pos-On-Wheels (mobile outlets), postal and stamp agents, is among those badly affected by the recent floods which was considered as the worst in Malaysian history.

 

“Some of our premises were flooded, while some outlets including mini pos were paralyzed during the period”, said Azlan Shahrim.

 

“However, in most affected areas, the condition had not prevented us from carrying out our duties and responsibilities of collecting and delivering letters, even when we had to paddle a sampan.”

 

MCMC has contributed RM100,000 to Pos Malaysia to help foot the cost of repairing the affected infrastructure.

 

At the ceremony, Mohamed Zaidi handed out RM1,000 in donation to each of the 18 affected Mini Pos operators.

 

“On behalf of Pos Malaysia, I extend my deepest appreciation and gratitude to the Ministry of Communications and Multimedia Malaysia and MCMC which had come to the aid of the public, including Pos Mini operators who had lost their income due to the floods.”

 

“With the re-establishment of the pos minis, the public can now enjoy postal services as usual.”

 

“Donations given to the operators will also help in some way to rebuild their life,” said Azlan.

 

Pos mini was established since the era of the Malaysian Postal Services Department aimed at extending basic postal services to customers across the country, especially in rural locations.

 

It also serves to support post offices in nearby cities and towns with high volume of transactions.

 

The establishment of pos mini is also aimed at helping operators boost their existing business via postal services which can be a crowd puller.

KUALA LUMPUR, Friday - Malaysian taxpayers continue to experience secure, smooth and efficient e-filing thanks to Digicert, a licensed Certification Authority (CA), and a wholly owned subsidiary of Pos Malaysia Berhad. Digicert has been providing Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) Services to the Inland Revenue Board (IRB) since 2006.

 

PKI supports the distribution and identification of public encryption keys, enabling users and computers to both securely exchange data over networks such as the Internet and verify the identity of the other party.

 

According to Azlan Shahrim, Covering Group Chief Executive Officer of Pos Malaysia, Digicert is the first CA licensed under the Digital Signature Act 1997 (Act 532) and Digital Signature Regulations 1998, which governs the issuance of digital certificates in Malaysia.

 

As an organization that is regulated by the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC), Digicert plays an important role in managing the lifecycle of PKI and digital certificates to our customers, and in turn helps MCMC to ensure the Digital Signature Act 1997 and Digital Signature Regulations 1998 in Malaysia are complied with.

 

“To date, the accumulated number of digital certificates that have been generated by Digicert for the e-Filing system has already reached six million units, and it has the highest usage of digital certificates in the country,” added Azlan.

 

Through digital certificates, taxpayers can also use the e-Filing services through smartphones. This mobility service was introduced back in 2012 and has encouraged the use of e-Filing especially among the younger generation.

 

“MCMC commends the IRB for its success in transforming the Income Tax Returns via e-Filing, one of the most successful e-government applications in Malaysia and the biggest users of digital certificates issued under the Digital Signature Act 1997. MCMC as the controller of Certification Authorities (CA) in Malaysia has mandated all the licensed CA to comply with the international Webtrust audit standard in the last three years as part of its efforts to modernize the National Public Key Infrastructure. This is also to establish a trustworthy digital eco-system environment for the government, businesses and citizens,” said Chairman of MCMC, Dato’ Sri Dr. Halim Shafie.

KUALA LUMPUR, Saturday – Since its first observance by the United Nations in 2008, World Oceans Day has provided an occasion to celebrate the wonders of a magnificent ecosystem.

 

In conjunction with this year’s World Oceans Day celebration, Pos Malaysia and Thailand Post will be issuing a set of special stamps entitled “Malaysia-Thailand Joint Issue (MARINE CREATURES) and associated philatelic products available for sale, starting Monday, 8 June 2015.

 

World Oceans Day takes place on 8 June and is an annual day of celebration and action with this year’s theme on plastic pollution in the ocean; Healthy Oceans, Healthy Planet.

 

Did you know that tens of thousands of marine life die each year after ingesting plastic or getting tangled in it? Every year a huge amount of plastic eventually makes it into coastal waters and harms ocean life. All of us can help to address the issue and play our little part.

 

“We at Pos Malaysia realize the importance of conserving our marine life and resources as they are rapidly declining around the world, and our oceans are changing faster than ever, endangering the security and livelihoods it supports. So for this special joint issue stamps, Malaysia and Thailand have chosen to feature marine life in this collection,” said Azlan Shahrim, Covering Group Chief Executive Officer of Pos Malaysia.

 

Adorned with images of four colourful marine creatures, the stamps measuring 30mm X 40mm will feature white spotted jellyfish (Phyllorhiza punctate) and sea slug or nudibranch (Hypselodoris bullockii) chosen by Malaysia, and coral guard crab (Trapezia areolata) and harlequin shrimp (Hymenocera picta) selected by Thailand.

 

They are available in two denominations, each featuring jellyfish and sea slug at RM0.60, and crab and shrimp at RM1.20.

 

“This World Oceans Day, let’s appreciate our coastal waters. We hope that everyone will be inspired to learn more about ocean change and understand how it supports us, so that all of us can better support it in return. On that note, we are proud to have the opportunity to release this joint issue stamps with Thailand”, added Azlan.

For the record, this is the fourth time Pos Malaysia has released such joint issue stamps. Previously, Pos Malaysia released stamps with Singapore Post on tropical birds (2002), Indonesia Post on various designs (2011) and Hong Kong Post on local food (2014).

KUALA LUMPUR, Tuesday – Pos Malaysia Berhad has a proud tradition of connecting Malaysians with their families and friends, no matter where they are especially during festive seasons.

 

Even with current digital communications, sending greeting cards is still a heritage held by Malaysians. Nothing beats the excitement of actually receiving a physical card in the mailbox.

 

So for this Aidilfitri season, we are pleased to continue our offer of a special postage rate for greeting cards from 18 June until 13 July 2015 !

 

The festive postage rate for a greeting card of any size, shape and colour to anywhere in Malaysia is only 50 sen (for weight of up to 50 grams).

 

The usual price of posting a non-standard letter could cost up to 80 sen to 90 sen each.

 

There is always sentimental value attached to a self-written card especially during Hari Raya Aidilfitri. The reason why many still prefer to send traditional greeting cards is because there is an element of human touch. We at Pos Malaysia hope by having this promotion yet again, the tradition of sending greeting cards during Hari Raya will continue ”, said Azlan Shahrim, Covering Group Chief Executive Officer of Pos Malaysia.

 

This is the tenth consecutive year that Pos Malaysia is offering a discounted festive postage rate.

 

Customers are advised to post their Hari Raya cards early to ensure that their cards are delivered before Hari Raya Aidilfitri.

 

We would also like to advise customers to clearly write the address of the recipient on the envelope and include all the necessary information, such as the full name of the recipient, house number, road, postcode, etc. as this would help us to process and deliver accurately”, he added.

 

Members of the public can purchase stamps for their greeting cards from all post offices and authorized agents nationwide.

KUALA LUMPUR, Wednesday – Pos Malaysia Berhad will issue special “bird stamps”, a popular theme for stamps worldwide.

 

The first stamps in this avian series were issued in 1965. Since then, there have been 12 collections, the last being the Woodpecker series in 2013.

 

In continuing with this tradition, Pos Malaysia will be issuing a special collection of stamps and philatelic items on Thursday, 25 June 2015, this time featuring the uniqueness of Herons and Bitterns.

 

“Herons and Bitterns were chosen to increase public awareness and promote the conservation of herons and their habitats worldwide. There are 19 species of these birds found in Malaysia, 7 of which can be observed at the Kuala Selangor Nature Park,” said Azlan Shahrim, Covering Group Chief Executive Officer of Pos Malaysia.

 

The stamps measuring 30mm X 40mm are available in two denominations, 60 sen and 70 sen for vertical format and 80 sen for horizontal format.

 

A special feature of this issue is that the miniature sheets are die-cut to follow the shape of the bird. This collection will feature four stunning species, namely the Black-crowned Night Heron (Nycticorax nycticorax), the Little Heron (Butorides striatus), the Grey Heron (Ardea cinerea) and the Cinnamon Bittern (Ixobrychus cinnamomeus).

 

Herons are freshwater and coastal birds belonging to the family Ardeidee. They are generally aquatic birds, relatively tall and thin, with long necks and legs, large sharply pointed bills, huge moveable eyes, and broad wings. There are 64 recognised species worldwide.

 

“The heron is a beautiful creature, exhibiting grace, and noble stature. In Egypt, the heron is honoured as the creator of light. A double headed heron is symbolic of prosperity. As a Chinese symbol, the heron represents strength, purity, patience and long life.” added Azlan.

 

Although birds have been featured many times in the past 50 years, herons have only appeared in one stamp in each of the following issues - Migratory Birds of Malaysia and Unique Birds of Malaysia.

KUALA LUMPUR, Tuesday – Pos Malaysia Berhad will issue special stamps series featuring exquisite pearls.

 

This is the first time Pos Malaysia is issuing collectors’ stamps portraying the uniqueness of South Sea pearls.

 

This special collection of stamps and philatelic items will be available on Wednesday, 29 July 2015.

 

“The highlight of this collection is a more striking 3D image, where foil stamping is combined with embossing, through the special printing technique which uses pearlescent foil and embossing of the Miniature Sheet. Another interesting feature is the shape of the stamps, which will be circular”, says Azlan Shahrim, Covering Group Chief Executive Officer of Pos Malaysia.

 

Foil stamping is a printing process whereby a heated die is stamped onto a sheet of pearl sheen foil making it adhere to a surface and leaving the design of the die on the paper.

 

Stamps measuring 30mm X 40mm are available in three denominations, 60 sen, 70 sen and 80 sen.

 

The collection will feature Drop, Baroque and Circle South Sea pearls that are renowned worldwide as the most valuable pearls. These pearls are generally much larger than other pearl types and have a unique luster quality therefore they command the highest price of all pearls.

 

“The way pearls are formed have special significance to our lives. We at Pos Malaysia believe it is a legacy that should be preserved. Pearls have endured the test of time to remain nature’s most beautiful gem,” added Azlan.

LAYANG-LAYANG ISLAND, Friday – Tourists, divers, navy personnel and resort staffs can now post letters from the deepest underwater post box located at Layang-Layang Island, which is a part of island/reef in Gugusan Semarang Peninjau (GSP) in Malaysian waters.

 

It is located in the South China Sea, 158 nautical miles or 293 kilometres northwest of Kota Kinabalu, within Malaysia Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).

 

On 4th of August 1994, Layang-Layang Island is gazetted as off-limits areas under the Protected Areas and Protected Places Act 1959 – Area Restraining Order (No.5) 1994 (Akta Kawasan Larangan dan Tempat Larangan 1959 –Perintah Kawasan Larangan (No.5) 1994).

 

After the establishment of the Royal Malaysian Navy (RMN) base in 1983, in-line with the Federal Government’s effective administration exercise, it is decided that Layang-Layang Island should also be developed as a tourist attraction because of its beautiful coral and marine life.

 

And the result, Avillion Layang Layang started its operation in 1993. Since its opening, the number of tourists that visited the resort has totalled up to 25,000 guests. Majority of the tourists comes from the United States of America, Europe as well as Asia Pacific countries.

 

This particular programme which is named as “Program Kedaulatan Pulau Layang-Layang”, focusses in extending the postal services on the island by introducing Special Postcode, Special Postmark, Post Box, Underwater Postmen and the appointment of Stamp Agent.

This initiative was carried out by the Ministry of Communications and Multimedia (KKMM), Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) and Pos Malaysia Berhad together with the full support and cooperation from the National Security Council (NSC), RMN and Avillion Layang-Layang.

 

The initiative includes the creation of special postcode for Layang-Layang Island (postcode 88005) and installation of two post boxes (underwater and on land).

 

Planted/installed on a sledge at 40 metres depth, the underwater post box is recognised by the Malaysia Book of Records (MBR) as the nation’s deepest underwater post box.

 

It is another ground breaking initiative by the MCMC in collaboration with Pos Malaysia, following the success of launching the highest altitude post box at the peak of Mount Kinabalu, earlier in February this year as it combines the elements of postal services and tourism.

 

This programme was launched by the Deputy Minister of Communications and Multimedia, YB Dato’ Jailani Johari at the Avillion Layang-Layang today.

The objective of World Post Day is to invoke appreciation towards the role and functionality of the postal sector in our everyday lives and to acknowledge the postal industry’s contribution towards social and economic development in countries worldwide.

 

Pos Malaysia’s special stamp collection features a logo that aptly portrays a traditional letter morphing into a carrier pigeon taking flight, which symbolizes two well-known icons of the postal and communication industry.

 

The letter evokes the fundamental values and mainstay of the postal industry, whereas the digitized lines and shape on the bird represents the modernisation of the postal industry as it continuously strives to evolve and transform to meet the demands of the modern world.

 

“The way we communicate is constantly changing and the Post is transforming by quickly adapting and innovating. Our focus is to better prepare ourselves in order to meet the demands of a digitally enabled society with needs and wants that are constantly evolving,” Covering Group Chief Executive Officer of Pos Malaysia Berhad, Azlan Shahrim said, in reference to the challenges faced by postal service providers in recent times.

 

Measured at 35mm x 35 mm, the World Post Day stamp is priced at 60sen per piece and will be on sale starting Friday at post offices nationwide.

 

Issued alongside the stamp will be philatelic products such as First Day Cover (53sen), First Day Cover with stamp (RM1.13), stamp sheet (RM12.00) and folder (RM6.36).

 

Additionally, Pos Malaysia will be celebrating World Post Day by organising various activities at national and state levels, such as “letter sorting” and “guess the number of stamps” competitions, as well as lucky draws, and exhibition of stamps and philatelic collections at General Post Offices nationwide.

 

Joining in to celebrate this anniversary, is Pos Laju, the courier arm of Pos Malaysia Berhad, who will offer a special promotion for its prepaid products; a “Buy 10 get 1 Free” offer and Happy Hour promotion at all Pos Laju outlets and kiosks from 11am to 1pm on 9 October.

About World Post Day

 

World Post Day is celebrated every year on the 9 October. It marks the anniversary of the establishment of the Universal Postal Union (UPU) in 1874 in the Swiss capital, Berne. However, it was only declared World Post Day by the UPU Congress held in Tokyo, Japan, in 1969. World Post Day is celebrated in more than 150 countries to create a global awareness of the roles and importance of the postal industry in the everyday lives of people and businesses, and its contribution to the social and economic development of its respective countries.

KOTA KINABALU, Thursday – “ASEAN postal organisations must capitalise on the rapidly expanding world of e-commerce by providing amongst other things, greater access to the post’s international logistics capabilities, infrastructure and delivery networks, as well as end-to-end solutions to customers and merchants,” said Group Chief Executive Officer of Pos Malaysia Berhad (Pos Malaysia), Dato’ Mohd Shukrie Mohd Salleh at the opening ceremony of ASEAN Postal Business Meeting (APBM) today.

 

Pos Malaysia currently is chair of ASEANPost for a 2-year term from 2015 to 2016. Dato’ Mohd Shukrie will lead the ASEANPost grouping to embrace opportunities from the opening and consolidation of the ASEAN economies into one single market post 2015.

 

 “In the face of deteriorating conditions of letter markets due to global economic and financial crisis, the uprising of e-commerce is indeed good news to all of us -- the postal operators -- as the overwhelming majority of goods bought online around the world will reach their final destinations via postal and express services. The increase in volumes of parcel domestically and internationally means the customers are relying more on postal organisations to deliver their goods purchased online rather than sending traditional mails” he added.

 

Dato’ Mohd Shukrie also urged the ASEAN postal organisations to leverage closely on each other’s competencies in order to create logistics solutions for regional and international e-commerce.

 

 “We see considerable strategic advantages, such as the creation of new relationships and opportunities for strategic cooperation within the ASEANPost network, all of which are expected to increase the growth and development pace in the postal industry as it pursues regional as well as international opportunities,” Dato’ Mohd Shukrie said.

 

Also present at the opening ceremony were Minister of Communications and Multimedia, YB Senator Datuk Seri Panglima Dr Mohd Salleh Tun Said Keruak and Pos Malaysia’s Director, YBhg. Datuk Mohamed Razeek Md Hussain Maricar.

 

Held as a two-day meeting, APBM features various slots of presentations from ASEAN post members. Topics of presentation include Integrated Product Plan by Pos Malaysia, UPU Customs Updates by Singapore Post and New Business Initiative for SMEs by Indonesia Post.

 

APBM is held annually in order to formulate common strategies in dealing with new challenges and business opportunities in response to the increasing need of customers in ASEAN counties. It is an avenue for its members to share experiences and best practices for postal reforms and business developments.

KUALA LUMPUR, Wednesday– Pos Malaysia Berhad (Pos Malaysia) today announced that it will be issuing the Traditional Attire stamps and philatelic products on Friday, 4 December 2015 in conjunction with the FourNation Stamp Exhibition 2015.

 

There are four stamp designs for this special issuance and each stamp features the traditional attire of every participating country in the stamp exhibition which is Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore and Indonesia.

 

Every stamp is imprinted with the illustration of a man and a woman donning the respective country’s traditional attire such as Baju Melayu and Baju Kebaya (Malaysia), Kesatrian Ageng and Putri Jogja (Indonesia), Thangzhuang and Cheongsam (Singapore) and “Suea Bhraratcha-than” and “Thai Chakkraphat” (Thailand).

 

Group Chief Executive Officer of Pos Malaysia, Dato’ Mohd Shukrie Mohd Salleh said the theme was chosen due to the fact that the four countries are known for their shared richness and diversity in cultures and traditions, and can be represented through traditional attires.

 

“Every traditional garment has its own historical background that can be traced back to our roots, making it one of the important representations of our culture and heritage. For example, Baju Melayu and Baju Kebaya or Baju Kurung of the Malays from Malaysia are the result of the growth in style and fashion that has gone through time and change, and many different influences over the course of history,” he said.  

 

 

The issuance of Traditional Attire stamps are  accompanied with special features such as miniature sheet without perforation and FourNation Stamp Exhibition cachet chop.

MELAKA, Friday– Avid stamp enthusiasts and members of the public are invited to the first ever FourNation Stamp Exhibition 2015 hosted by Malaysia, held at Dataran Pahlawan from today, 2 December until Sunday, 4 December 2015.

 

The FourNation Stamp Exhibition 2015 is participated by stamp collectors and philatelists from Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Indonesia. They will be competing with each other for three days, showcasing their stamps and philatelic collections to visitors and jurors and eyeing for awards in various categories.

 

“As visitors come to the exhibition to see and explore the wonderful and unique stamps from different countries, we hope that they will also discover that stamps are one of the important national heritages, as they are usually vignettes that document important information of their country of origin. Therefore, we expect that this exhibition will at least slightly change people’s perception and understanding on stamp collecting as a hobby, and consequently help to revive the interest just like it used to before,” Group Chief Executive Officer of Pos Malaysia Berhad (Pos Malaysia), Dato’ Mohd Shukrie Mohd Salleh told the reporters after the launch ceremony of the FourNation Stamp Exhibition 2015 here today.

Kota Belud, Saturday – Pos Malaysia Berhad (“Pos Malaysia”) with the support from the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (“MCMC”) launched the Address For All (“AFA”) project in Kampung Pirasan, Kota Belud, Sabah as part of the Sabah & Sarawak Transformation Program Series 3 on 26 March 2016.  The AFA project in Kota Belud will encompass of the renumbering process of 20,221 premises within the district’s 191 villages.

 

“In order to ensure all efforts to reach out to the citizens in terms of physical communications, socio-economics, disaster relief and emergency management, among others, I believe that a complete address is a necessity for every premise in the country.  We would then be able to facilitate and provide better services to boost the quality of living as accessibility will not be a hindrance once this project kicks off,” said Pos Malaysia’s Group Chief Executive Officer, Dato’ Mohd Shukrie Mohd Salleh.

 

“This project is in line with SIRIM and the Universal Postal Union (UPU) S42 standard in creating a library of templates that can be easily incorporated into computer systems for managing addresses.  To date, there are over one million or 12 per cent of residential and business premises without identification number and complete addresses. The AFA project will ensure that all premises will be equipped with complete addresses by 2020.  The project has been in progress since 2015 and is driven by the partnership of Pos Malaysia and MCMC,” he added.

 

This AFA project will be spearheaded by a team that would beperforming a physical survey and extraction of the Geographical Positioning System (GPS) location for each premise and will then propose the establishment of the official premise number based on the consensus from the AFA team and the villager’s representative.  A prominent feature of the premise number is the Quick Response (QR) codes which will be embed and the QR code would then be accessible and verified via Pos Malaysia’s website using smartphones.  This initiative is seen as a bridging tool to minimise the gap between the rural and urban areas in Sabah and this would be a platform to bring more value added products and services offered by Pos Malaysia to the community in Sabah.     

 

Having grown from strength to strength throughout the years, Dato’ Mohd Shukrie is confident that Pos Malaysia will continue to innovate and transform itself to ensure relevancy and having the competitive edge to connect with Malaysians and beyond.

Kuala Lumpur, 28 March 2016 – Pos Malaysia Berhad (“Pos Malaysia”), today launched its first e-Commerce hub to tap into e-commerce opportunities in Malaysia and beyond by providing amongst other things, greater access to Pos Malaysia’s local and international logistics capabilities, infrastructure and delivery networks as well as various e-commerce solutions to customers and merchants.

 

Said Dato Mohd Shukrie Mohd Salleh, Group Chief Executive Officer of Pos Malaysia:” This strategic initiative is a significant milestone in our transformation journey into the region and is an affirmation of our long-standing strategy in e-Commerce business as part of Pos Malaysia’s growth trajectory. We are excited to create concrete benefits to our customers by enhancing their user experience and providing greater access to a suite of e-commerce solutions, all of which are expected to increase the Company’s growth and development pace as it pursues regional opportunities.”

 

The hub will deploy some of the most advanced and innovative automation systems such as Application Programming Interface (API), warehousing facility, parcel locker and drop box facilities which will significantly improve and meet the growing needs of the e-Commerce merchants and buyers. The implementation of API will provide a wider platform and reach to help businesses leverage the power of the internet to establish their presence and conduct businesses via local and global marketplaces. 

 

Via the e-Commerce hub, both the merchants and buyers will be able to perform online transactions 24-hours globally.  The e-Commerce platform creates 5,700 touch points throughout the region that easily connects eight (8) million addresses in Malaysia.  More e-Commerce Hubs are in the pipeline to be built at strategic locations this year.

 

With the tremendous e-commerce opportunity, Pos Malaysia is confident that this strategic investment will enable Pos Malaysia to significantly scale up its e-commerce business, build new capabilities and strengthen it as a revenue stream, even as its core business continues to be under tremendous pressure from rapidly declining traditional mail volumes.

 

“Still, as Malaysia’s postal provider, our foremost priority is to provide high quality domestic mail services to meet our service obligations in Malaysia.  Pos Malaysia will continue to speed up investments especially in technology and infrastructure. We have already invested a lot to improve our service and productivity by setting up National Mail Centre and Integrated Parcel Centre in Shah Alam, replacing the delivery fleet and offering more 24/7 services such as Parcel Locker and Drop Box facilities. And we will continue to invest despite the declining letter mail volumes into serving Malaysia’s postal needs and its delivery standards,” added Dato Shukrie.

PONTIAN, Sunday 10 April 2016 – Pos Malaysia Berhad (Pos Malaysia) continued its efforts in promoting postal tourism with its newly erected post box in Tanjung Piai, Johor which is located at the southernmost part of Mainland Asia.

 

A collaborative project between the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC), Pos Malaysia, Johor State Government and Tanjung Piai National Park, the post box was launched by the Menteri Besar of Johor, YAB. Dato’ Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin. Also present to witness the event were Minister of Communications and Multimedia Malaysia, YB. Senator Datuk Seri Panglima Dr. Mohd Salleh Tun Said Keruak, Pos Malaysia’s Group Chief Executive Officer, YBhg. Dato’ Mohd Shukrie Mohd Salleh, and representatives from MCMC.

 

The post box is strategically located in front of the Tanjung Piai Monument at the entrance of the Tanjung Piai National Park in Pontian, Johor.  It has a 3D floor mural featuring Lotong Cikong Macaques and Piai Raya tree leaves in a mangrove surrounding.

 

“This achievement is part of Pos Malaysia’s continuous efforts with the support of MCMC in promoting postal tourism in the country,” said Dato’ Mohd Shukrie.

 

“Apart from Tanjung Piai, Post Malaysia had previously unveiled few postal tourism post boxes such as the highest post box in Malaysia on Mount Kinabalu, and the deepest underwater post box in Malaysia on the seabed of Pulau Layang-Layang, Sabah. Rest assured that we won’t rest on our laurels as we are still exploring other initiatives to make more contributions to the country’s growth via postal tourism”.

 

Local visitors and tourists are encouraged to post special postcards via the Tanjung Piai post box to commemorate their visit to the National Park, which is renowned as the southernmost tip of Peninsular Malaysia and the Mainland Asia.  The postcard is available for purchase at the National Park.  It is a must have item as the special postcard features the image of the Tanjung Piai’s monument.

 

“A special postmark featuring an illustration of a Lotong Cikong macaque enclosed with address of the location is made available only at this location,” said Dato’ Mohd Shukrie.

 

During the launch, Dato’ Mohd Shukrie also announced that 2,277 premises from seven (7) villages in Mukim Serkat will be given identification numbers as part of citizen’s outreach agenda.

 

“A complete address is a necessity for every premise in this country. It helps to ensure all governmental efforts to reach out to the citizens in terms of socioeconomics, security, utilities, disaster relief and emergency management efforts can be channelled efficiently.

 

“At the same time, it will help Pos Malaysia as the national postal and courier services organisation to provide more effective service especially for the growing e-commerce sector,” said Dato’ Mohd Shukrie.

 

To date, there are over one million or 12 per cent of residential and business premises without identification number and complete addresses. The Address for All (AFA) project will ensure that all premises will be equipped with complete addresses by 2020.  The project has been in progress since last year and is driven by the partnership of MCMC and Pos Malaysia.

Kuala Lumpur, Wednesday – Pos Malaysia Berhad (Pos Malaysia) continues its tradition to encourage families and friends to connect throughout Malaysia by sending greeting cards in conjunction with the Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebration by offering the Special Postage rate of RM0.50 from 13 till 30 June 2016!

 

Even with the current social media frenzy, Pos Malaysia still believes in the excitement and preserving the traditional heritage in sending and receiving greeting cards, especially during the festive seasons.

 

“A self-written card bears a sentimental value, especially during special occasions such as the Hari Raya Aidilfitri.  Nowadays, a wish is just a click away, but to personally write and receive a card gives it a more personal, nostalgic and human touch.  Thus, we in Pos Malaysia continue to embrace the tradition by having this promotion, yet again,” said Dato’ Mohd Shukrie Mohd Salleh, Pos Malaysia Berhad’s Group Chief Executive Officer.

 

“The special postage rate of RM0.50 is applicable to greeting cards not exceeding 50 grams, which is posted within Malaysia.  We are also giving our customers a grace period of 18 days, which we believe is an ample period for anyone to post their festive cards,” he added.

 

Customers are advised to post their Hari Raya cards early to ensure that their cards are delivered before the Hari Raya Aidilfitri, as the promotion period will end five (5) days prior to the celebration. 

 

In addition, customers are advised to clearly write the name, address and other necessary information of their recipients to ease the process and delivery of the festive cards to their beloved families and friends, in time for the Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebration!

Kuala Lumpur, Monday – The courier arm of Pos Malaysia Berhad (Pos Malaysia), Pos Laju targets to manage 255,000 kilograms (kg) of goods and baggage for  Malaysian pilgrims during the Haj season this year.

 

Group Chief Executive Officer of Pos Malaysia, Dato’ Mohd Shukrie Mohd Salleh said he is optimistic that with the allocation of extra counters throughout selected locations in Mecca and Medina, as well as the continuous promotional activities done by Pos Laju, will produce positive impact and surpasses last year’s services standards during the period.

 

“We have expanded the number of hotels from five during last year’s period to seven this year for the upcoming Haj season. We hope that our effort eases our Malaysian pilgrims, especially in delivering their goods and baggage to Malaysia or other parts of the region under Pos Malaysia’s jurisdiction.  In addition, this service is not restricted only to pilgrims who reside in the selected hotels, but also to those who reside within the vicinity and require delivery assistance during their Haj session,” he said to the media after the launch of Pos Malaysia’s Haj Baggage Service at Pos Malaysia’s headquarters, today.

 

Pos Malaysia will be deploying 35 staff from 3 August to 21 October 2016 and they will be attached at several hotels in Saudi Arabia to facilitate the services. The selected hotels are Hotel Al-Wafideen, Rawdhat Al Souroq, Manar Al Shouroq, Qasr Al Janadiriyah, Masat Al Bada’e in Makkah and Al Saha and Al Haram in Madinah.

 

Dato’ Mohd Shukrie said Pos Malaysia would impose a SR14.00 or RM15.00 per kilogram (kg) for goods sent to Peninsular Malaysia and SR19.00 or RM21.00 per kg for goods sent to Sabah and Sarawak.

 

“Malaysian pilgrims can also dispatch Zam-Zam water for RM125.00 (SR115.00) per 10-litre bottle for delivery to Peninsular Malaysia and RM146.00 (SR135.00) per 10-litre to Sabah and Sarawak.  I would like to also advise our pilgrims to despatch their goods early so that the delivery in Malaysia could be made before the Wukuf day,” he added.

 

“It would take about two weeks for the shipment to be delivered to the recipients. Malaysian pilgrims who engage this service, will be able to track their shipment status via the Pos Malaysia’s website at www.pos.com.my,” said Dato’ Mohd Shukrie.

 

Pos Malaysia has been offering the Haj baggage services for the past 17 years. The programme, which is part of the company’s corporate responsibility initiative, was introduced in 1999.

  • Revenue grew 15 per cent to RM1.72 billion
  • Achieved RM92.5 million of Profit Before Tax
  • Declared final dividend of 11.7 sen per share

 

SUBANG, Thursday – Continuing expansion in e-Commerce and Logistics activities raised Pos Malaysia’s revenue for Financial Year 2015/2016 (FY2015/16) by 15% to RM1.72 billion. This is attributed to the strong growth in its Courier and e-Commerce-driven transhipment businesses.

 

Brigadier General (K) Tan Sri Dato’ Sri (Dr.) Haji Mohd Khamil Jamil, Chairman of Pos Malaysia said: “Pos Malaysia remains resilient amidst the challenging year under review and it strives to further improve its sustainability to remain relevant. Thus, the acquisition of the entire equity interest of the KL Airport Services Sdn. Bhd. (KLAS) and Konsortium Logistik Berhad (KLB) is envisioned to provide Pos Malaysia the edge over our competitors in its quest to become the preferred one-stop fully integrated logistics provider.”

 

“The acquisition for RM749.35 million is expected to be completed in the second half of 2016.  This strategic investment is a significant milestone in our transformation journey into the region and beyond and is an affirmation of our long-standing strategy in e-Commerce logistics as part of Pos Malaysia’s growth trajectory as it pursues regional opportunities.”

 

“Pos Malaysia will leverage on the core competencies and experience of KLAS and KLB in providing a comprehensive ground handling services and integrated land, air and sea logistics solutions to advance its e-Commerce eco-system and create a suite of end-to-end logistics solutions for the customers. However, we will ensure that our mail delivery services remain as our trademark or identity,” he said during the company’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) and Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) held at the Glenmarie Ballroom, Holiday Inn Kuala Lumpur Glenmarie earlier today.

 

With regards to the operation, Dato’ Mohd Shukrie Mohd Salleh, Group Chief Executive Officer of Pos Malaysia said: “Early this year we have increased our 24/7 e-Commerce convenient touch points by introducing Pos Laju EziBox (parcels lockers) and Pos Laju EziDrop (for prepaid items), as well as Pos Laju EziDrive-Thru facilities at strategic locations. This will grow to a total of 110 more touch points from the current total of 1,030 throughout Malaysia by end of 2016. This together with improvements in productivity and service efficiency from investments in infrastructure resulted in positive performance overall.”

 

Pos Malaysia recorded the Profit Before Tax of RM92.5 million for its financial year ended 31 March 2016.

 

During Pos Malaysia’s Annual General Meeting, the Board of Directors of Pos Malaysia declared a first and final single tier dividend of 11.7 sen per ordinary share for FY2015/16 to be paid on 7 October 2016.

PULAU MENSIRIP, Monday – Pos Malaysia Berhad (Pos Malaysia) unveiled its first Royal Seabed Post Box within the waters of the Sultan Iskandar Marine Park (TLSI) near Pulau Mensirip, one of the many islands located off the east cost of Mersing, Johor.

 

Group Chief Executive Officer of Pos Malaysia, Dato’ Mohd Shukrie Mohd Salleh said the latest installation of the post box is part of the collaboration between Pos Malaysia,the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) and the Johor State Government in promoting postal tourism in the country.

 

“This ground breaking initiative emulates the previous success stories of Pos Malaysia in providing and installing the highest altitude post box at the peak of Mount Kinabalu, followed by the deepest underwater post box at Pulau Layang-Layang both located in Sabah, as well as the southernmost post box in Mainland Asia, located in Tanjung Piai, Johor,” he added.

 

“Pos Malaysia would like to extend our gratitude to His Majesty the Sultan of Johor, Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar, for his consent and to the Johor National Parks Corporation (PTNJ) and the Mersing District Office for their cooperation to ensure the realisation of this project.  In turn, we hope that this initiative will further encourage international and local tourists to experience the vast wonders offered by TLSI,” said Dato’ Mohd Shukrie during the launch of the Royal Seabed Post Box.

  

In a similar fashion to the deepest underwater post box in Malaysia at Pulau Layang-Layang which was launched a year ago, the Royal Seabed Post Box has been honoured by the Malaysia Book of Records (MBOR) as the first ever royal underwater post box ever installed in the country.

 

This latest collaboration is also a part of Pos Malaysia’s extension programme in improving its postal services around the group of islands for the benefit of the residents at the TLSI area which includes Pulau Besar, Pulau Pemanggil, Pulau Sibu, Pulau Tinggi and Pulau Aur.

 

In conjunction with this launch, guests also witnessed the introduction of the special 86888 post code for the group of islands in TLSI. In addition, new products and services such as a landed post box, as well as special postmark and post cards showcasing the splendour of TLSI were introduced during the event.

 

Concurrently, Pos Malaysia had successfully set another milestone by installing the first artificial coral reef garden in Malaysia also recognised by the MBOR. This artificial coral garden depicting 42 coral frames in the formation of T.L.C.G, is named Tunku Laksamana Coral Garden (TLCG) in memoriam of the Almarhum Tunku Laksamana of Johor, Tunku Abdul Jalil Iskandar ibni Sultan Ibrahim who passed away in December last year. .

 

Also present at the officiating ceremony were the Menteri Besar of Johor, Dato’ Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin and the Chairman of MCMC, Dato’ Sri Dr. Halim Shafie.

Tuesday, 20 September, 2016 - Pos Malaysia was ranked second worldwide and received the Gold Award for its international Express Mail Service (EMS) at the 26th Universal Postal Union Congress 2016 in Istanbul, Turkey today.  This award was given by the Universal Postal Union (UPU) in recognition of Pos Malaysia’s high levels of reliability, visibility, customer focus and value for money for international EMS items handled during the past year.

EMS volumes handled by Pos Malaysia have been growing at an average rate of 5% annually since 2009, and are set to grow even further, driven by the strong growth of e-commerce.

 

Annual EMS awards are given by the UPU to postal operators for achieving high levels of performance.  The UPU is an agency under the United Nations which sets rules for international mail exchanges between all postal sector players worldwide. Results are subject to an international independent audit.

 

This international award is recognition for Pos Malaysia’s efforts at improving its operations aimed to meet customer expectations.  The Company attributes the award to the hard work put in by its employees and aims to further improve service levels to meet customer expectations.

 

Besides providing door-to-door express international delivery service with tracking and proof of delivery, Pos Malaysia had recently introduced new features to its EMS, such as zoning and lower weight steps of 200 g, which make sending lightweight merchandise for personal and business even easier and more value for money.

Cyberjaya, Thursday – Pos Malaysia Berhad (Pos Malaysia) today has established a strategic partnership with Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) to further enhance its postal services for rural communities in Sabah and Sarawak via the Pos Authorised Agent initiative at the Pusat Internet 1Malaysia (PI1M).

 

The initiative is a part of the Postal Transformation Plan for Sabah and Sarawak (PTPSS), now entering Phase 3, in which Pos Malaysia has collaborated with the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) for the past six years since 2010.

 

Dato’ Jailani Johari, Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Communications and Multimedia Malaysia said, from the regulatory point of view, MCMC is tasked to ensure a healthy growth of e-commerce in Malaysia, as the growth is not only essential for it to build an all-inclusive broadband network, but it is also needed to create an excellent e-fulfilment network throughout the country in line with the current user requirement.

 

As such, the strategic collaboration between 1Malaysia Internet Centre (PI1M) and Pos Malaysia could not have forged at a better time, as the rural e-fulfilment facilities can be expedited at a lower cost, in tandem with the Government recommendation under the National Blue Ocean Strategy Agenda (NBOS).

 

In addition, Dato’ Jailani also said that the Pos Authorised Agent project will further strengthen and expand Pos Malaysia’s capabilities and offerings under the PTPSS project.

 

 

“Our Pos Authorised Agent at PI1Ms in Sabah and Sarawak will provide value added services such as the sales of Pos Laju prepaid envelopes and boxes, Pos Express envelope, Flexipack (domestic), postal registered mail, and definitive stamp as well as serving as the acceptance counter for Pos Laju posting, ordinary mail and registered mail and also the call point for delivery service.”

 

“Additionally, this strategic partnership be one of the avenues to enable the Government to assist and improve the socio-economic segment within the communities of Sabah and Sarawak,” added Dato’ Jailani

 

Dato’ Jailani also said that the Pos Authorised Agent project will be officially launched on 1 November 2016 and he hoped that the initiative will further benefit both the Government and Pos Malaysia as it will indeed enhance the communications and delivery system in Sabah and Sarawak.

 

“I believe that the Pos Authorised Agent project will be a catalyst of change for the community surrounding the PI1M locations, as they will not only enjoy and benefit from the high speed internet services and IT facilities, but it will provide convenience to business owners and community to selected Pos Malaysia’s products and services.”

 

“For starter, the Pos Authorised Agents will be placed at eight PI1Ms situated at Kampung Pandan (Lundu), Niah Suai, Kampung Jepak (Bintulu) in Sarawak and Pekan Kinabatangan, Pekan Bingkor Laut (Keningau), Kampung Rampayan Laut (Kota Belud), Sungai Kayu (Sandakan) and Batu Sapi (Sandakan) in Sabah,” he explained.

 

During the event, Dato’ Jailani also unveiled a limited edition 1 Kg Pos Laju prepaid pack which will be sold at the aforementioned PI1Ms.

 

 

 

 

“The special Pos Laju prepaid pack comes in two designs. Although both types are predominantly white coloured, one pack sports red themed design for postage within Sabah or Sarawak, whereas another uses blue themed design for postage between Sabah and Sarawak and to Peninsular Malaysia.

 

 It is a limited edition box as only 1,000 units of each box type will be produced. As such, I urge those who are in Sabah and Sarawak to grab it fast before it goes out of stock,” he said.

 

The strategic partnership agreement was signed by MCMC’s Chairman, Dato’ Sri Dr. Halim Shafie Communication, Digital Services and Standards Sector Chief Officer, Dato’ Mohd Ali Hanafiah Mohd Yunus,  Pos Malaysia’s Group Chief Executive Officer, Dato’ Mohd Shukrie Mohd Salleh and Chief Commercial Officer, Postal and Courier, Tuan Haji Nor Azizan Tarja and was witnessed by Dato’ Jailani Johari.

The mobile app is the latest initiative introduced under the latest phase of the Postal Transformation Plan for Sabah and Sarawak (PTPSS), which is now in Phase 3. The PTPSS project is growing stronger since its inception in 2010.

Kuala Lumpur, Tuesday – The orphans’ eyes from Pusat Jagaan Al Faizin and Rumah Nur Hikmah gleamed with excitement at the sight of their new school uniforms, stationeries and bags that they were taking home under the “Back To School” (BTS) program organised by Pos Malaysia Berhad (Pos Malaysia) earlier today.

 

Pos Malaysia’s Group Chief Executive Officer, Dato’ Mohd Shukrie Mohd Salleh said the “Back To School” program which was initiated in 2012, is part of Pos Malaysia’s corporate responsibility under its Community quadrant.  Pos Malaysia adopts selected orphanages and works closely with them to plan and execute a fruitful event for the benefit of the orphans.     

 

“We sincerely believe in the phrase to pay it forward, which literally means helping a person or a group, and in return, they will benefit from what we had shared with them.  We hope that by providing the basic school necessities, these children will look forward to the new school semester as well as uplift their spirits to work hard in achieving success in life.  It also frees up some funds for the orphanages or parents that they can use elsewhere,” added Dato’ Mohd Shukrie while addressing the audience during the BTS program.

 

Concurrently, the children were treated with a tour of the Kuala Lumpur General Post Office and the Stamp Gallery to experience the day-to-day life of a postal personnel and to discover the various stamp collections produced by Pos Malaysia.

Kuala Lumpur, Friday –Pos Malaysia today rolled out its 50th Pos Laju EziBox at the PETRONAS Station Jalan Kolam Ayer Lama, Ampang. Through this collaboration with PETRONAS Dagangan Berhad (PDB), customers especially motorists will find it even more convenient to have their items delivered to the automated smart locker as they can easily collect and now post their parcels 24/7 at their convenience.

 

The wide adoption of digital technologies like the smart mobile devices and internet has led to increasing online interactions. Pos Laju EziBox is well suited for urban areas like Kuala Lumpur as it lets the parcel do the waiting, catering to busy lifestyle of busy Malaysians in this digital age.

 

“We are aware of our customers’ woes in collecting their items or parcels during their working hours or the long queue in our collection centres.  Thus, the conceptualization of the Pos Laju EziBox is to provide ease and convenience to our customers to collect their parcels in their own time as well as under a secured environment,” said  Pos Malaysia’s Group Chief Executive Officer, Dato’ Mohd Shukrie Mohd Salleh.

 

Previously, the Pos Laju EziBox main function was to be a mechanism for customers to collect items posted to them during their absence at home, after office hours or during the holidays.  After thorough observation and study throughout the year, Pos Laju eventually introduced posting of items via the Pos Laju EziBox.  Thus, it creates more options for the prepaid and contract customers, as they are able to perform their transactions 24/7.

 

PDB’s Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Dato’ Mohd Ibrahimnuddin Mohd Yunus said, “We are pleased to support Pos Malaysia’s expansion of EziBox as it is also aligned with PDB’s commitment of diversifying our convenience offerings at our PETRONAS Stations and Kedai Mesra. We are certain that our customers will appreciate this efforts, especially those who are on the go.”

 

Moving forward, Pos Laju Ezibox customers will be able to use the Pos Laju Ezibox to return parcels to the merchants directly, as well as utilising the EziBox as an alternate address to receive any items purchased online.

 

The Pos Laju EziBox is currently being rolled out at 60 other locations including nine (9) PETRONAS Stations in the Klang Valley, with a view of expanding an additional 10 units within the same year, Pos Malaysia e-Commerce Hub Dayabumi, GPO Johor Bahru, Pos Laju Bangi, Putrajaya Sentral, 18 Post Offices and three (3) Light Rail Transit (LRT) Station (Kuala Lumpur) and Tesco.

Kuala Lumpur, Thursday - Pos Malaysia today announced its support to the "To My Friend in Gaza" project by providing the convenience for children in Malaysia to post their letters, postcards and greeting cards to a single PO Box address.

"To My Friend in Gaza" is a project that was conceptualized, initiated and led by YBhg Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir to encourage Malaysian children to write letters, cards, postcards or drawings to show Palestinian children that they are thinking of them, wishing them well and praying for their safety.

The children can now send their goodwill messages to the children in Gaza through the PO Box address as follows :

To My Friend in Gaza / Untuk Kawanku di Gaza
P.O. Box 1000
50796 Kuala Lumpur.

The letters will then be translated into Arabic and sent to UNICEF to be delivered to the children in Gaza.

Pos Malaysia will also show its support by displaying the posters for "To My Friend in Gaza" project at all its 691 outlets countrywide.

"I am pleased to be working with Pos Malaysia on this very special project. It shows how a partnership between individuals, the private sector such as Pos Malaysia and +wondermilk who designed the logo and the posters, and international organisations such as UNICEF can truly make things happen," said Datin Paduka Marina.

"It is my sincere hope that all children of Malaysia will show their support for the children of Gaza and send their messages of hope and goodwill. Times have been very hard for the children and I truly hope that the messages from our Malaysian children will help in a way to restore their faith in humanity. Pos Malaysia will do our best to support this initiative by ensuring that the letters are delivered safely and efficiently to the Project Organiser in Malaysia," said Dato' Syed Faisal Albar, Group Managing Director / Chief Executive Officer of Pos Malaysia.

YBhg Datin Paduka Marina and Pos Malaysia's Group Head of Corporate Communications handed over the first batch of close to 3,000 letters, cards and drawings to Mr. Youssouf Oomar, UNICEF Representative to Malaysia and Special Representative to Brunei at the Media Conference held today. The letters will be dispatched to UNICEF's office in the Occupied Palestinian Territories in support of efforts to bring normalcy back to the lives of children in Gaza.

According to UNICEF, tens of thousands of children in Gaza have returned to school since the third week of January. Together with its partners in the region, UNICEF is working to rehabilitate schools to create safe and protective spaces and provide psycho-social support that will benefit 40,000 children and 5,000 teachers.

"We need to remind children in Gaza who are battling their own inner fears and insecurities that they are children and they are not alone", said Mr. Youssouf. We hope that the letters from children in Malaysia will reinforce these messages and help Gaza's children live through this cycle of their life in a positive way."

KUALA LUMPUR, Tuesday – Pos Malaysia will be issuing a new collection of stamps and philatelic items on the Legacy of Weave featuring Songket, Cindai, Chinese Silk and Brocade, Pua Kumbu and Magavol. The stamps will be available for sale on 12 January 2012.

The Malay Archipelago has always been a magnet to migrants from all parts of Asia and the world. Traders and adventurers from India and China began to settle in this region over 2,000 years ago. They brought along their culture and arts. Through time and cross-cultural blending, a unique heritage emerged, including the art of weaving traditional textiles and embroidery that is uniquely Malaysia. Using diverse forms, techniques, embellishments and materials, various textile products were produced.

“The stamp collection is produced as Pos Malaysia’s tribute to Malaysia’s textile heritage. Issued for the first time ever, this collection exclusively features the different types of textiles produced by various races in the yester years and we hope that our efforts will increase the public awareness on Malaysia’s history and the art of weaving traditional textiles.” said YBhg Dato’ Khalid Abdol Rahman, Group Chief Executive Officer, Pos Malaysia Berhad

The stamps, measuring 35mm X 45mm in size are printed in sheets of 20 on SPM Watermarked Phosphor Coated (14 perforations) which features five types of textiles with denominations 60 sen each : Songket (60 sen), Cindai (60 sen), Pua Kumbu (60 sen), Chinese Silk and Brocade (60 sen) and Magavol (60 sen)

Songket (60 sen) 
The Songket of the East Coast of Peninsula Malaysia is said to have Thai-Cambodian roots with clear Indian-Chinese influences. Gold and silver threads were weaved into the silk or cotton cloth which made it an exclusive item. The Songket with gold and silver threads is usually weaved on a frame loom. But now more people are using the flying shuttle which is also called Siamese loom. Up until the 20th century, the Songket was only reserved for the nobility. Palaces and royal households employed master weavers to make sure this remained so.

Cindai (60 sen)
Another unique textile is the Cindai. Also known as Kain Limar in Malay and Patola in Hindi, this was brought to our shores in the 15th century by Gujerati traders who were mostly Muslims. It was brought to our shores during the time of the Melaka Sultanate. Highly detailed it was weaved with high quality silk. The royal courts in the Malay kingdoms of Melaka, Sumatera, Java and Brunei soon adopted it as part of their ceremonial attire.

Pua Kumbu (60 sen)
The Pua Kumbu weaved by Dayak women of Sarawak are used at various life-cycle events such as childbirths, the coming of age, weddings and also deaths. It is also believed to possess powerful spirits and is integral to the traditional rituals of the people. It is so important to the Dayaks that every Dayak woman is expected to know how to weave it. The Dayaks also produce the Anyam, a brocade cloth weaved with silver and gold thread, similar to the Songket of the East Coast. In the Iban language pua kumbu means grand blanket. This colourful and finely woven textile is made on the simple backstrap loom.

Magavol (60 sen)
Women of the Rungus tribe (a sub-group of the KadazanDusun tribe) are prolific weavers capable of producing finely embroidered hand-woven cloth which they call Magavol. Mostly black it is usually worn with other embellishments. To the Rungus black is the colour of power. They also believe that black protects the wearer from evil spirits. The natives of Sabah are also well-known for their head-cloth which goes by various names such as Dastar, Sigal, Tubao, Tanjak and Padung.

Chinese Silk and Brocade (60 sen)
Home-made silk and cotton were part of life in olden China. People of the time produced what they needed, including silk and cotton cloth which they produced using the backstrap or frame loom. This fabric with an ancient past has been produced throughout the various periods in China’s long history. Broadly there are four styles of this intricately embroidered needlework fabric - Yun (Nanjing), Shu (Chengdu), Song (Suzhun) and Zhuang (Guangxi).

** Further details are included in the enclosed brochure of the stamp collection.

The stamps will be sold to the public beginning Monday, 27 February 2012.

The IFNGO has played a significant role in fostering cooperation and collaboration between Government and non-government organizations throughout the world.

It is IFNGO's objective to work together as one, to pursue activities to prevent drug and substance abuse in order to achieve a drug-free society.

The "Yes to Life, No to Drug" stamp collection features the positive outlook for lives that are free from drugs and other substance abuse.

"Pos Malaysia has always been supportive of the efforts towards promoting healthy and positive lifestyle and this includes through the production of stamps and philatelic items which will increase the awareness and understanding among our customers and the community. We hope that everyone would also show their support towards lifestyle that is free from drugs and substance abuse by purchasing the stamps and First Day Cover", said Dato' Khalid Abdol Rahman, Group Chief Executive Officer of Pos Malaysia Berhad.

In short, this stamp issuance aims to stress the fact that a healthy lifestyle from the beginning till the end of life of a person can be achieved by choosing to say "Yes to Life, No to Drugs" and ensure a bright and healthy future for all.

KUALA LUMPUR, Thursday – Pos Malaysia continues the voyage in its Transformation Roadmap by embarking on the Second Wave which will be a five-year plan from 2012/13 – 2016/17 to transform the company into a modern and high performance organisation. The ambitious plan is expected to see double digit revenue growth and improved profitability. The First Wave was a three-year plan from 2010 - 2012 and emphasized on fixing the core business and processes to allow the Company to put the house in order.

The Second Wave of the Transformation Roadmap will be guided by Five Strategic Thrusts, known by its acronym,SCORE:

 

S Solution driven by technologies
- Harnessing ICT to support business growth and enhance service quality
C Customer centricity
- Focus relentlessly on meeting customer’s changing needs
O Operational efficiency
- Extract the optimal efficiency, thus optimize cost and increase productivity
R Revenue and geographical diversification opportunities
- Look into opportunities to diversify revenue by venturing into high growth areas and attractive markets domestically and regionally
E Effective enablers’ capabilities 
- Strong and effective enablers to support the transformation program

 

“Technology has certainly changed the marketplace and business landscape for postal organisations all over the world. Pos Malaysia recognizes the importance of embracing the digital technology to keep ahead with the times but nevertheless, despite the constant evolution of technology, there are some areas of our business that can never be digitized. For example, the flow of goods and merchandise will always rely on physical networks. Therefore, we are in the best position to converge digital and physical worlds. Technologies will also allow us to develop innovative, value-added and customer-centric products and services,” said YBhg Dato’ Khalid Abdol Rahmad, Group Chief Executive Officer of Pos Malaysia.

“The plan also includes extending convenience and easier access to our customers, along with improvements to our operational efficiency and optimisation of our resources, allowing Pos Malaysia to pursue new growth opportunities as well as increase its revenue and business viability,” Dato’ Khalid added.

SCORE will be focusing on developing Pos Malaysia’s potential and enhancing operational capabilities, similar to the paths undertaken by successful postal organisations all over the world and some of the key factors that will be incorporated are as follows :

Diversified income stream and service beyond postal

 

  • The core contributor to Pos Malaysia’s revenue is postal and related services, mainly the traditional postal products but moving forward, the Company shall pursue revenue diversification through aggressive business growth strategies to reduce its dependency on mail as well as develop and expand other business areas both organically and inorganically
  • In essence, Pos Malaysia will manage a more balanced portfolio focusing on high growth areas and high margin services. It is important to note that mail will continue to be Pos Malaysia’s main revenue generator and cash cow, growing in value and size, however, other businesses will grow exponentially hence increasing in terms of proportion to overall revenue, resulting in reduced mail proportion.

 

Supply chain solutions

 

  • The Transformation Plan has taken into consideration the massive network strength of Pos Malaysia which encompasses over 1,000 touch points and its capability to deliver to over 8 million addresses all over the country, both of which can be capitalized to offer end-to-end supply chain solutions for corporate and individual customers.

 

Innovative solutions across channels

 

  • Access to our offerings is currently pretty much in the physical form, including brick and mortar channels. The 5-Year Strategic Plan envisions the future of Pos Malaysia where its services can be accessed via either physical and digital channels; or even a combination of both.
  • Pos Malaysia is in the best position to exploit the convergence of physical and digital technology in order to develop innovative, creative and convenient value offerings to our customers. This includes taking into perspective the current competencies of Pos Malaysia and recognizing the need to build new competencies for tomorrow in order to maintain its relevance to the customers from all walks of life.
  • This will open up new possibilities and opportunities to broaden our business areas as well as create new ones.

 

Expand digital business

 

  • Technology is changing the business and social environment and influencing consumer behaviors especially to the younger generation who will become our future customers.
  • The critical need here is to understand the ramifications of the digital technology and how to use it creatively.
  • As the market is moving towards e-solutions, Pos Malaysia will expand its digital business by either build/acquire the competencies required for us to offer comprehensive digital solutions in line with technologies that drive customer preferences, wants and needs.

 

Through the strategies as outlined in the above, Pos Malaysia will aggressively engage to diversify its revenue within the domestic market as its priority remains to elevate its dominance within the domestic market, prior to venturing beyond borders.

Dato’ Khalid said, “Pos Malaysia aspires to establish ourselves as the preferred one stop solutions provider for communications, financial and supply chain and we believe this can be accomplished through SCORE within the next five years. We will focus on and prioritize our resources, time and investment to grow and expand any initiatives that can support our aspiration”.

KUALA LUMPUR, Sunday – In line with the spirit of 1Malaysia, Pos Malaysia today announced the 50 sen flat rate for postage of festive cards to anywhere within Malaysia.The special offer will allow Malaysians to send more greeting cards to friends and family, during major festivals celebrated in Malaysia, with a cheaper rate than normal postage.

The promotional rate of 50 sen will be offered for the following major festive occasions in Malaysia :

 

Festive OccasionPromotion Period
Hari Raya Aidilfitri 23 July 2012 until 25 August 2012
Deepavali 29 October 2012 until 17 November 2012
Christmas 10 December 2012 until 31 December 2012
Chinese Lunar New Year 21 January 2013 until 16 February 2013

 

The rate is applicable for all sizes of festive greeting cards,with the weight of no more than 50gm.

“With the current development of Information and Communication Technologies such as e-mail, SMS, and free e-cards, we understood that Malaysians would choose these alternatives. However, many of them still value the personal touch when wishing their friends and loved ones with a physical greeting card. Therefore we would like to encourage Malaysians to send greeting cards during these festive seasons by introducing the one flat postage rate.” said Dato’ Khalid Abdol Rahman, the Group Chief Executive Officer of Pos Malaysia Berhad.

“The one flat rate would also be in support of the local card and envelope manufacturers, as more Malaysians would be sending greeting cards.” Dato’ Khalid added.

However,greeting cards to international destinations will be charged as per the normal surface of airmail postage.

For Hari Raya Aidilfitri, Pos Malaysia would like to advise the customers to post their Hari Raya Cards by 13 August 2012 to ensure that the cards are delivered to the recipients in a timely manner before the celebration of Hari Raya Aidilfitri.

Pos Malaysia would also like to advise customers to adhere to the proper guidelines on writing the address of the recipients on the envelope to ensure that all the necessary information is included, such as the full name of the recipient, house number, block number, name of the building etc. as this would help us to process and deliver their greeting cards efficiently. (Please refer to the attached visual)

ArRahnu@POS is a strategic partnership between Pos Malaysia Bhd. ("Pos Malaysia") and Bank Muamalat Malaysia Berhad ("BMMB"), two companies under the DRB-HICOM Group, combining both its network reach and expertise in Ar-Rahnu. ArRahnu@POS will be operated by Pos Ar-Rahnu Sdn. Bhd., a subsidiary of Pos Malaysia.

Ar-Rahnu, an Islamic pawn broking is a micro credit financing and an alternative to loan borrowings which could cater for business requirement of petty traders as well as small and medium scale businesses. Among the advantages of Ar-Rahnu is its compliance to Syariah (Islamic code of law) and applicable to everybody.

POS MALAYSIA'S
ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING 2012
POS MALAYSIA ACCOMPLISHED A HISTORIC RECORD OF RM1.48 BILLION 
REVENUE FOR THE 15-MONTH FINANCIAL PERIOD ENDED 31 MARCH 2012
   
RM1.48 billion revenue recorded for the 15-month Financial Period Pos Malaysia today announced its financial results for the financial year ended 31 March 2012 which covers a 15-month period from 1 January 2011 until 31 March 2012

Pos Malaysia attained a revenue of RM1.48 billion, an increase of 21.8% compared to the previous Financial Year (2010) and Profit Before Tax recorded at RM200.2 million, powered by the full year domestic tariff impact and realization of value creation from its initiatives under the Transformation Plan that focuses towards improving, enhancing, developing and augmenting Pos Malaysia’s domestic core businesses, namely Mail, Courier and Retail.

2011 also marks a significant year for Pos Malaysia with the acquisition by DRB-HICOM Berhad of Khazanah Nasional Berhad’s 32.2% equity stake in the Company.

Declared 17.5 sen dividend per ordinary share for shareholders Pos Malaysia declared a first and final dividend of 17.5 sen per ordinary share less 25% income tax for the financial year ended 31 March 2012.

This translates to a net dividend payout of approximately 46.6% of net Profit After Tax.

Positive Financial Performance in all areas Pos Malaysia recorded higher operating profit of RM177.8 million compared to RM83.4 million in 2010, a remarkable increase of 113.2%.

EBITDA improved by 88.3% to RM264.6 million from RM140.5 million recorded last year.

The noteworthy achievements are attributed to the various revenue growth initiatives throughout the year by all Strategic Business Units which includes the launch of new and innovative financial and retail services, increased offering in postal products, growth in courier volume in tandem with the development of e-commerce and online shopping as well as revision of the domestic tariff. 

Higher Profit After Tax as well as annualized Revenue and Profit Before Tax Pos Malaysia recorded RM138.8 million in its Profit After Tax an increase of 106.9% compared to RM67.1 million in the previous year.

On an annualized basis, revenue and PBT recorded major growths of 16.8% and 61.6% respectively from 2010 which reflects positively on Pos Malaysia, considering the challenges faced by postal organisations all over the world and regression in overall volumes across our business lines.

Strong revenue contribution from business segments Mail business continues to be the major source of revenue for the Group despite the declining mail volume, contributing RM921.5 million for the 15-month FYE or 62.2% of the Group’s revenue. On annualized basis, this represents an increase of 21.8% compared to the previous financial year

Contribution from the Courier business also increased, registering an increase of 9.0% in revenue on annualized basis from 2010. Courier business contributed RM308.7 million in revenue which represents 20.8% of the Group’s revenue contribution for the FYE 2012.

The Retail business contributed 13.7% to the Group’s revenue at RM202.6 million for the FYE 2012 and on annualized basis, registered an increase of 9.4% compared to 2010.

Positive outlook for 2012 Commenting on Pos Malaysia’s noteworthy achievement in its 15-month Financial Year, YBhg Dato’ Sri Haji Mohd Khamil Jamil, Chairman of Pos Malaysia said, “The entry of DRB-HICOM on 1 July 2011 as the largest shareholder of Pos Malaysia marks a new synergistic journey as we explore new opportunities to unveil the next stage of Pos Malaysia’s transformation. We are positive that with the employees’ dedication and commitment as well as leveraging on Pos Malaysia’s various potential towards modernization and innovation, we are able to soar to greater heights and build a new future for Pos Malaysia,”

“We have made significant improvements internally and our success certainly was not achieved overnight. Nevertheless, with the implementation of the second stage of our Transformation Plan, we hope to be able to overcome the various challenges in the postal industry as well as evolve and enhance Pos Malaysia’s growth through revenue diversification, exploring regional business opportunities and expansion to new business areas.”

Dato’ Sri Haji Mohd Khamil further said that Pos Malaysia will continue to give its full commitment to deliver high quality service and improve the reliability and relevance of its service offerings.

KUALA LUMPUR, Tuesday – Pos Malaysia Berhad in collaboration with the State Government of Melaka and Melaka Museums Corporation (PERZIM) will be issuing new stamps and First Day Cover to commemorate the 750th Anniversary of the Founding of the Malay – Melaka Empire. The stamps will be sold to the public on Monday, 8 October 2012.

Melaka has a strong and ancient link with Palembang. Once ruled by Hindu-Buddhist kingdoms of Srivijaya and Majapahit, Melaka and Palembang have different stories to tell. Palembang was the capital city of Srivijaya and had been established more than 700 years before Melaka was founded. When Palembang was already an important international trading port, Melaka was a nameless region languishing in the swampy backwaters.

Soon after it was founded by Parameswara, Melaka’s fame and fortune grew. Quickly she became the focal point of international trade and played host to traders from far and near. Melaka was also an important centre for the spread of Islam within the region. Under the protection of China during the Ming Dynasty, Melaka grew by leaps and bounds to become one the most important trading centres in the world during her time alongside Amsterdam and Genoa.

At her peak in the 15th century, Melaka attracted people from all parts of the world who spoke over 80 different languages besides Bahasa Melayu (Malay Language) which was the lingua franca of the region; over 2,000 ships docked in her harbor at any one time. Peace and stability prevailed and Melaka thrived owing to good governance including the introduction of laws such as The Canons of Melaka and Melaka’s Maritime Laws.

“Pos Malaysia has always been involved in the issuance of stamps to commemorate historical milestones of Malaysia and we are very honoured for the opportunity to issue this Commemorative Stamp collection celebrating the 750th Anniversary of the founding of Melaka. We hope through this issue, it will enhance the awareness on Melaka as a historic city worldwide, and the Commemorative Stamps and philatelic items will be a valuable collection for all Malaysians, stamp collectors and philatelists all over the world,” said YBhg Dato' Khalid Abdol Rahman, Group Chief Executive Officer, Pos Malaysia Berhad.

The stamp, measuring 70mm x 25mm in size (14 perforations each), containing 15 pieces of stamps and printed on SPM Watermarked, phosphor coated paper are available in 2 designs featuring Cheng Hoon Teng temple and Masjid Kampung Hulu in 50sen and 90sen denominations respectively.

The Miniature Sheet at 110mm x 80mm in size contain a stamp measuring 70mm x 35mm with denomination of 750 sen (RM7.50).



** Further details are included in the enclosed brochure of the stamp collection.

 

First Day Cover is at 50 sen each and can be purchased at all Pos Malaysia Outlets countrywide. Folder at RM5.50 each is only available at selected outlets.

DOHA, Qatar, Wednesday – Malaysia was elected to the Postal Operations Council (POC) on 10 October 2012 (yesterday) at the 25th Universal Postal Union (UPU) Congress in Doha, Qatar. The Postal Operations Council which is made up of 40 member countries was heavily contested by the UPU member countries.

The Council deals with technical and operational issues affecting the international postal sector. It promotes the introduction of new postal products and makes recommendations to member countries concerning standards for technological, operational or other processes. The Council’s programme of work aims above all at helping postal operators to modernise and upgrade their postal products.

“The win reflects the UPU member countries’ trust and confidence in Malaysia’s contributions and leadership in various UPU committees and project groups,” said YAB Datuk Seri Utama Dr. Rais Yatim, Minister of Information, Communication and Culture.

“With this membership, Malaysia will be able to play a greater role in shaping the future of global postal sector and will play an integral part of the increasingly digital world. Malaysia has already started its support by pledging a contribution of USD100,000 for the dotpost project, which will be one of the key agenda for the next cycle. This initiative is especially meaningful to us since Malaysia was instrumental in the early stage of development of the regulatory framewok for the dotpost domain under the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN),” said Datuk Seri Utama Dr. Rais Yatim.

The Malaysian delegation in Doha, comprising of senior officials from the Ministry, Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Commission and Pos Malaysia Berhad was led by YB Senator Datuk Maglin Dennis D’Cruz, the Deputy Minister of Information, Communications and Culture.

The theme of the 25th Universal Postal Congress, “New World, New Strategy” officially opened in Doha, Qatar on 24th September 2012 and marked the gathering of postal leaders and stakeholders from the Universal Postal Union’s 192 member countries to decide on the global postal sector’s future every four years.

KUALA LUMPUR, Wednesday – Pos Malaysia Berhad, the nation’s postal services company continues its partnership with Etiqa Takaful Berhad, the no. 1 Takaful player in Malaysia, to offer two newly launched non-motor products, namely Takaful Flexi PA and Takaful Driver & Passenger PA. These products are readily available at all Pos Malaysia outlets countrywide.

“The strategic partnership with Etiqa reflects their trust and confidence on Pos Malaysia’s ability to provide their takaful products to our customers and this is part of our PosAssurance long term initiative to diversify our service offerings. We have been aggressively promoting such products and it has been positively received because the products are affordable by customers from various walks of life and accessible through our extensive network of outlets,” said Dato’ Khalid Abdol Rahman, Group Chief Executive Officer of Pos Malaysia.

“Based on the response from our customers since it was introduced three months ago, we can see that Takaful Flexi PA and Takaful Driver & Passenger PA will continue to receive good response from our customers. At only 19 sen per day, it’s cheaper than a glass of Teh Tarik but provides you and your loved ones peace of mind as the coverage is provided all year long against fatality and disabilities due to accidents, hospitalization as well as assisting in the settlement of Vehicle’s Hire Purchase,” Dato’ Khalid added.

In his speech, Hans De Cuyper, Chief Executive Officer of Etiqa Insurance and Takaful said that the continued strategic alliance with Pos Malaysia will enable Etiqa to expand its brand presence further, with products being distributed by more than 700 Pos Malaysia branches nationwide.

“With the support of Pos Malaysia, we are able to reach more people, offer them more products and be the preferred choice for Malaysians from all walks of life. That is what we at Etiqa strive for – humanizing insurance and takaful. We understand the busy schedules, coupled with the traffic and hassle of going to the selected destinations for your protection needs. This is why we are bringing our products to you instead, via Pos Malaysia. We place people over policies, taking into consideration your needs to make your life simpler and less complicated,” said Hans.

The Takaful Flexi PA coverage provides policy holders protection against unexpected circumstances such as assisting in settlement of vehicle’s hire purchase of up to RM50,000 in the event of death, permanent disability and hospital admission allowances due to an accident. On the other hand, the Takaful Driver & Passenger PA covers each driver and up to four passengers with RM15,000 coverage each in the event of death, hospitalization treatment benefits and permanent disability in the event of an accident.

The products are simple and straight forward plans with high coverage and can be packaged with the existing Etiqa Takaful Comprehensive Motor Products. Both plans have been sold since June this year and as of 15th October, 2,997 policies with a total contribution of RM179,820 have been issued by Pos Malaysia branches and Pos-On-Wheels (POW) nationwide.

Underwritten by Etiqa Takaful Berhad, both plans feature an easier and more convenient experience for customers with options to purchase the products via Pos Malaysia’s extensive network at an affordable rate of only RM0.19 cents per day or RM70.00 per year, including a stamp duty of RM10. Coverage for both products is valid for a period of one year.

Pos Malaysia currently performs as an agent for eight insurance companies and two takaful operators. It has transacted more than one million insurance transactions with over RM125 million premiums collected for the first half of FY12/13. This is largely generated from motor insurance. Besides Etiqa Takaful Berhad, other existing Pos Malaysia Motor insurers / takaful operators, such as UniAsia, Allianz, Kurnia, Zurich, Syarikat Takaful Malaysia, RHB Insurance and Multi Purpose are also geared up in providing comprehensive insurance and motor coverage. In addition, Pos Malaysia’s customers can enjoy on-the-spot policy and online NCD transfer. Moreover, Pos Malaysia also offers renewal of road tax service for private vehicles on behalf of Jabatan Pengangkutan Jalan (JPJ).

KUALA LUMPUR, Tuesday – Pos Malaysia Berhad will issue new stamps and philatelic items featuring Postmen’s Uniform in conjunction with the celebration of World Post Day. The stamps and philatelic items will feature several types of postmen’s uniform since the early 20th Century until the modern times. The stamps will be sold to the public on Monday, 22 October 2012.

“This is the first time in Pos Malaysia’s history that we issue a special collection of stamps featuring the types of uniforms worn by our postmen from the colonial era until the modern times. This collection is issued in conjunction with World Post Day that was celebrated on 9 October and it is indeed very significant to us as a tribute to the postmen who has dedicated their lives in connecting Malaysians and the rest of the world through postal service,“ said YBhg Dato’ Khalid Abdol Rahman, Group Chief Executive Officer of Pos Malaysia Berhad.

“The various types of uniforms depicted on the stamps in terms of their colours, type of materials used and styles marks the changing times in Malaysia’s history. For example the earlier 20th Century, the uniforms were simple and made of resilient and durable materials such as khaki, suitable for the harsh nature of work for postmen at that period compared to during the 80’s where the postmen’s smart uniform reflects its status as a Government department. As time goes by, the uniform becomes much more modern in terms of the style that is more comfortable and the colours being used with the current version reflecting the brand and identity of Pos Malaysia,” Dato’ Khalid added.

The stamp, measuring 35mm x 45mm in size (14 perforations each), containing 20 pieces of stamps and printed SPM Watermarked, phosphor coated paper are available in 3 designs featuring postmen’s uniforms during the 1950s, 1970s and 1990s in denominations of 60sen, 80sen and RM1 respectively. The collection also features the Universal Postal Union’s logo on the stamp designs to commemorate World Post Day celebration.

The Miniature Sheet, 85mm x 120mm in size contains 2 stamp designs, one of which, at 35 mm x 45 mm in size in denomination of RM 1.00 featured the current postmen uniform and another one at 35mm x 90mm in size in denomination of RM 2.00 featured the postmen’s uniform during the early 20th Century. First Day Cover is at 50 sen each and can be purchased at all Pos Malaysia Outlets countrywide. Folder at RM5.50 each is only available at selected outlets.

History of Malaysia’s postal service.

Malaysia’s first post office was most likely opened in Penang in 1805 under the British administration. At the time all of Penang’s administrative matters including those related to postal services were decided in India which was the seat of the British Empire in the East at that time. On 1 September 1867 the Straits Settlements issued their own stamps which were essentially overprints of Indian issues inscribed with the words ‘Straits Settlements’. Communication among the Straits Settlements was mostly by sea before the turn of the 20th century.

The Federated Malays States (FMS) made up of Selangor, Perak, Negeri Sembilan and Pahang were formed in 1896. Postal services for these were separate from those of the Straits Settlements. For example, only stamps marked with the inscription ‘Federated Malay States’ were valid for use in the FMS. This autonomy caused inconvenience. It was only in 1934 that the postal services of the FMS and the Straits Settlements merged. This followed the formation of the Malayan Postal Union.

The postal service in the Unfederated Malay States (UMS) which consisted of Johor, Terengganu, Kelantan, Kedah and Perlis was patchy, except for Johor. This may be due to her proximity to Singapore. Johor became a British protectorate in 1885, earlier than the other states in rest of the country.

Letters moved very slowly in those days. For example, a letter from Kelang to a recipient in Pahang went through a convoluted route. From Kelang it was taken to Kuala Lumpur after which it was taken to Kuala Kubu Bharu at the western foothills of the Main Range. From here it crossed over to the other side of the mountain perhaps making a brief stop at Fraser’s Hill before eventually going to Raub and subsequently to the final destination many days later.

Interestingly, the idea of delivering mail by airplanes had been mooted before the First World War but it did not happen until much later in 1937 when Wearne Brothers flew the first regular air service from Singapore to Penang via Kuala Lumpur beginning on 28 June 1937. Another route opened up air mail service to Kota Bharu, Kelantan. This lasted from April 1937 to June 1940.

The outbreak of World War Two saw strict censorship of all overseas mail. Shortage of stamps was also a problem. This went on until after the end of the war and beyond. After World War Two, Malaya was briefly ruled by the British Military Administration.

By 14 April 1947, the Malayan Post Office took over the postal services from the British army and Royal Air Force. Soon the Federation of Malaya was formed. Malaya issued her own stamps as did each state within the federation. Each had her own stamps and related stationery, and these were valid for use throughout the new federation.

Malaya became an independent nation on 31 August 1957. Definitive stamps were issued to mark this significant moment. As a young nation Malaya joined many international organizations such as the Universal Postal Union UPU to keep abreast of developments in various parts of the world. Malaysia has been a dynamic member ever since.

It is also worth noting that from its early days the post office was an important institution. Before and after Independence the Post Office was not just a transmitter of letters and documents it also provided other essential services such as insurance, transactions of money through postal and money order, and also the collection of investment funds through Post Office Savings Bank. Other miscellaneous services were also available such as the payment for electricity bills, television and radio licenses (at one time) and even dog licenses! It was truly the one-stop centre in its day.

A lot has happened since then and Malaysia’s postal services have grown by leaps and bounds. To keep up with changing times, Pos Malaysia introduced many new services. A lot of improvements had been made since the early days. A new dynamism was infused into the service with greater emphasis on delivering of top-notch services to all.

KUALA LUMPUR, Friday – Pos Malaysia will be issuing a new stamp collection and philatelic items featuring four types of Woodpeckers that can be found in Malaysia and other Asian countries. The stamps and philatelic items will be sold to the public beginning Monday, 14 January 2013.

Woodpeckers belong to the Picidae family of the Piciformes order. There are more than 180 species around the world. They are easily recognized by their unique behavior of pecking vertically on trees, with some having very distinct crest as well as sharp beaks. Woodpeckers also have specially adapted feet and tail feathers which enable them to cling to tree trunks. Unlike most birds which have only one claw facing backward, woodpeckers have two claws facing forward and two facing backward. The tail feathers of woodpeckers are stiff and act as brace to support the bird.

“Malaysia has variety species of flora and fauna and for this collection we want to share the uniqueness of our fauna species specifically on Woodpeckers through our stamp and philatelic items. This is the first time for Pos Malaysia to feature Woodpeckers on our stamps and we believe by sharing the information through our stamp and philatelic products, we could create awareness among the public on the importance of conserving our jungle which is the natural habitat of these birds. We hope the customers and stamp collectors will not miss the opportunity to get this collection at the nearest Pos Malaysia Outlet,” said Dato' Khalid Abdol Rahman, Chief Executive Officer of Pos Malaysia Berhad.

In Malaysia, woodpeckers are found in varying colors and sizes with some very brightly colored and others somewhat dull. Sizes range from the small 15cm Buff-rumped woodpecker to the large White-bellied woodpecker measuring up to 43cm. In between there are the medium sized woodpeckers (25cm – 30cm) such as the Banded woodpecker, Common Flameback woodpecker and the Yellownaped woodpecker. Most woodpeckers eat only insects and tree sap, but some also eat fruits and nuts.

The stamps, measuring 30mm x 40mm in size (14 perforations each), contains 20 pieces of stamps per sheet and are printed on SPM Watermarked Phosphor Coated. They are available in three designs and different denominations each featuring Banded Woodpecker (60sen), Common Flameback Woodpecker (80 sen) and Lesser Yellownape Woodpecker (RM1). The Miniature Sheet with embossed printed technique was 110mm x 70mm in size contain stamp, at 68 mm x 48 mm in denomination of RM 5.00 featuring White-bellied Woodpecker.

KUALA LUMPUR, Monday – Pos Malaysia continues to offer 50sen flat rate for postage of Chinese New Year festive cards to anywhere within Malaysia. The special offer, in line with the 1Malaysia aspiration will allow Malaysians to send more greeting cards to friends and family, during major festivals celebrated in Malaysia, with a cheaper rate than normal.

The promotional rate of 50 sen is offered for the major festive occasions in Malaysia from 23 July 2012 until 16 February 2013 that includes Hari Raya Aidilfitri, Deepavali, Christmas and New Year as well as Chinese New Year.

The rate is applicable for all sizes of festive greeting cards,with the weight of no more than 50gm.

“With the current development of Information and Communication Technologies such as e-mail, SMS, and free e-cards, we understand that Malaysians would opt for these digital alternatives. However, many still value the personal touch when wishing their friends and loved ones with a physical greeting card. Therefore we would like to encourage Malaysians to send greeting cards during these festive seasons by introducing the one flat postage rate.” said Dato’ Khalid Abdol Rahman, the Group Chief Executive Officer of Pos Malaysia Berhad.

“The one flat rate would also support the local greeting card and envelope manufacturers, as more Malaysians would be sending festive cards” Dato’ Khalid added.

The stamps and philatelic items will be sold to the public beginningTuesday, 5 February 2013.

Traditionally, domesticated animals such as dogs, cats, birds and fishes are kept as pets. Exotic pets are generally deemed as anything other than the typical domesticated animals.

More than 2,000 Pos Malaysia staff gave a rousing welcome to the Deputy Prime Minister who was accompanied by YB Dato’ Seri Utama Dr Rais Yatim, Minister of Information, Communication and Culture and YBhg Dato’ Mohamed Sharil Mohamed Tarmizi, Chairman of the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission. Also present to welcome the guests of honour were YBhg Dato’ Sri Haji Mohd Khamil bin Jamil, Chairman of Pos Malaysia, Encik Mohd Shukrie Mohd Salleh, Covering Group Chief Executive Officer of Pos Malaysia, as well as the Board of Directors and the Leadership Team of DRB-HICOM and Pos Malaysia.

In his speech, the Deputy Prime Minister shared his perspective and recognition of Pos Malaysia’s various contributions to the nation’s development as well as how the Company can continue its efforts to uphold the government’s aspirations towards a peaceful, progressive and harmonious 1Malaysia.

The Deputy Prime Minister announced that Pos Malaysia’s Postal Transformation Plan for Sabah & Sarawak (PTPSS) will be continued for the second phase to improve the efficiency and quality of its service for the two respective states in a holistic manner especially in the rural areas.

“We are indeed incredibly honoured to have our Deputy Prime Minister here with us today to spend some quality time with Pos Malaysia staff and share his thoughts and ideas on how Pos Malaysia can continue to support the transformation efforts of the nation. This is his second visit to Pusat Mel Nasional after launching it on 21 June 2011 and this time it is more significant to us with the launch of the Second Phase of the PTPSS, enabling Pos Malaysia to continue in our efforts to improve our service quality to the rural areas of the two states,” said YBhg Dato’ Sri Haji Mohd Khamil bin Jamil.

PTPSS is part of Pos Malaysia’s efforts to transform as well as enhance the last mile delivery system in geographically challenging areas in Sabah and Sarawak with the support from the Ministry of Information, Communications and Culture (MICC) and the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC). During the First Phase of PTPSS from 2010 until 2012, Pos Malaysia has appointed 450 Posmen Komuniti, 600 Wakil Pos Komuniti as well as deployed 10 Pos-on-Wheels (POW – mobile post offices) in Sabah and Sarawak which contributed to the improvement in delivery standard from 47% to 63.9% in Sarawak and from 65% to 89% in Sabah.

“In line with our core values which includes Customer Centricity, one of the strategies includes bringing our services closer to the people from all walks of life and PTPSS is part of Pos Malaysia’s Corporate Responsibility efforts towards ensuring that all Malaysians will have better access to its services as well as enhancing the socio-economic development of the people in rural areas by providing work opportunity,” Dato’ Sri Haji Mohd Khamil added.

The continuation of PTPSS for the Second Phase from 2013 until 2015 will enable Pos Malaysia to appoint more Posmen Komuniti and Wakil Pos Komuniti as well as expand the scope of coverage for delivery of mails to the rural areas, increasing the penetration rate from an average of 65% to 90%. 6 additional Pos-On-Wheels (POWs) will also be deployed to increase the number of touch points and expand the area of coverage, providing customers the access to various over-the-counter retail services that is normally available at post offices including bill payment for various government agencies and corporate organizations, JPJ and ASNB services as well as over 150 other transactions and services offered by Pos Malaysia.

The Deputy Prime Minister also graciously declared that all staff will receive from Pos Malaysia RM500.00 gratuity as well as family insurance plan that protect the staff and their immediate family in the event of accidents, permanent disability and deaths.

We take pride in providing great customer care services and would constantly find ways to add value to our services so that ultimately, our customers can have a fulfilling shopping experience. Having this service is a great convenience to customers, allowing them to purchase a gift for a friend or family member and have it gift wrapped and mailed out to the recipient all within a single trip to MPH Bookstores. We believe that this service will gain popularity especially during the festive months,” said Donald Kee, Chief Operating Officer of MPH Bookstores.

Kee added, “The synergy created through this collaboration with Pos Malaysia has already been tested via our e-commerce division MPHONLINE.COM whereby Poslaju is our appointed national courier partner. As we all know, e-commerce spending have risen in leaps and bounds in Malaysia in the last 12 months and one of the key essential criteria that customers sought for when shopping online is fast and safe product delivery.

KUALA LUMPUR, 8 May 2013 – Children with disabilities in Malaysia will get the chance to explore and exercise their creativity through the nationwide “Colours of My World” art contest, organised by KakiseniKakikreatif, Pos Malaysia and UNICEF to honour and celebrate the abilities of disabled children.

Children between the ages of 13 and 17 years old who have been diagnosed with a physical, sensory or developmental disability are invited to submit their original artwork to illustrate their life, as well as their dreams and hopes for themselves and for Malaysia.

“This art contest is an eye opening way of seeing the world through the perspectives of children with disabilities,” said UNICEF Representative to Malaysia, Ms. Wivina Belmonte. “It is a critical reminder for the rest of us that what is most important are the abilities that define these children, not their disabilities. Given the chance, children with disabilities can be agents of change, like all children. And like all other children they have a right to be heard. It is empowering for them and revealing for us."

Celebrating ability with stamps

The “Colours of My World” art contest, launched in conjunction with the 5th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) on 8 May, focuses on the abilities of children with disabilities, encouraging greater public understanding, acceptance and inclusion.

“Pos Malaysia lauds the various initiatives coordinated by UNICEF to promote the rights of children worldwide and we are proud to demonstrate our support. This is our second collaboration to produce stamps on children’s rights and we are honoured to be a partner of UNICEF and KakiseniKakikreatif for the ‘Colours of My World’ art contest,” said Encik Mohd Shukrie Mohd Salleh, Covering Group Chief Executive Officer of Pos Malaysia.

“Too often, children with disabilities are made to feel that there is no place for them, that they don’t count and have nothing to contribute. Their invisibility robs society of a valuable resource. Which is why Pos Malaysia is truly honoured to be a part of an initiative that will celebrate disabled children and provide them with a meaningful media to showcase their talents whereby their artwork will be featured in our stamps for all Malaysians and the world to appreciate,” Encik Mohd Shukrie added.

Winning entries from each of the three disability categories will be used to create Pos Malaysia’s Caring Society commemorative stamps and first day cover. Pos Malaysia will also award each of the three winners with a cash prize of RM 10,000. This is the second initiative between Malaysia’s postal service and UNICEF. In 2009, Pos Malaysia joined forces with UNICEF to create the Caring Society stamp set to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Magic of colours

Given the important role of “colours” on a child’s mood, development and learning, the art contest has incorporated the word into its theme “Colours of My World”. Children participating in the contest are encouraged to take inspiration from the word when creating their artwork by allowing their imagination and creativity free rein to express their realities, dreams and hopes.

“Colours have a beautiful magical quality, providing children with the stimulation that helps them learn and think creatively,” said Kakiseni Kakikreatif Executive Director, Low Ngai Yuen. “We hope that the young artists taking part in this contest will be spontaneous in the use of colours, and will let their emotions and their energies flow in a natural way, straight from their heart.”

The deadline for submission of artwork is 20 June 2013. Children who wish to participate in the contest can download the Entry Forms at www.unicef.my from 8 May onwards.All winners will be notified by Kakikreatif and invited to the launch of the commemorative stamps and first day cover on 22 October 2013.

KUALA LUMPUR, Friday – Pos Malaysia will be issuing a new collection of philatelic items on the Wonders of Malaysian Forests, featuring three of Malaysia’s well known and oldest forest reserves : Taman Negara, Royal Belum (Perak) and Maliau Basin (Sabah). The collection will be available for sale on Monday, 13 May 2013.

Rainforests are often called the lungs of the planet for their role in absorbing carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, and producing oxygen, upon which all animals depend for survival. Rainforests also stabilize climate, house incredible amounts of plants and wildlife, and produce nourishing rainfall all around the planet.

Some of the world’s oldest rainforests are located in Malaysia, where they are home to a rich biological diversity of wildlife. Royal Belum in Perak, for example, is one of the largest forest reserves in the Peninsular Malaysia that is yet to be discovered and is believed to have been in existence for over 130 million years making it one of the world’s oldest rainforests, older than both the Amazon and the Congo rainforest. While in Sabah, Maliau Basin is a unique conservation area where rare and endemic flora and fauna have thrived for millions of years

Tropical rainforests contribute a wealth of resources for the survival and well-being of all creatures including mankind. These resources have included basic food supplies, clothing, shelter, fuel, spices, industrial raw materials, medicine and herbs. However, more than half of the world’s rainforests have fallen victim to rapid, uncontrolled development as well as deforestation. 50 years ago, rainforests cover 20% of the world’s land surface and they now cover a mere 5%. Nevertheless, various efforts have been undertaken not only to increase awareness towards conservation of rainforests but also towards sustainable and ecologically conscious development.

“The intricate ecosystems of rainforests however, are currently facing serious threats. It is important for all Malaysians to support the efforts to conserve, protect and maintain our forests in order to preserve our environment, ensuring that the future generation can have access and appreciate the natural treasures of Malaysia. Issuing this new philatelic collection is one of our Corporate Responsibility initiative to increase awareness and understanding as well as enhance the appreciation towards the Wonders of Malaysian Forests,” said Encik Mohd Shukrie Mohd Salleh, Covering Group Chief Executive Officer of Pos Malaysia Berhad.

This collection will feature Miniature Sheets that are available in RM 5.00 denominations each featuring three designs of Taman Negara forest, Royal Belum, Perak forest and Maliau Basin, Sabah The stamps contained within the Miniature Sheets are at 30mm x 40mm and 30mm x 49.5mm in size. The Miniature Sheets are printed on self – adhesive Phosphor coated Stamp Paper, with Kiss-Cut Perforations. The collection also includes three design of the First Day Cover,priced at 50 sen each and can be purchased at all Pos Malaysia outlets. Folders at RM 5.50 each is only available at selected outlets.

Tri-Nation Stamp Exhibition (TRI-NATION) is a joint stamp exhibition jointly organized together by three countries - Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia. The idea of this joint stamp exhibition was talked about and conceived in 2010. The first meeting was held at Johannesburg, Africa in November 2011 by representatives from Philatelic Association of Thailand, Association of Singapore Philatelists and Philatelic Society Malaysia to discuss about the general objectives and policy. The meeting also decided that Thailand would be the first to host TRI-NATION.

In 2011, Thailand successfully hosted the first TRI-NATION Stamp Exhibition at Chiangmai International Conference Center from 21 till 23 October 2011. This was followed by Singapore who hosted the second TRI-NATION Stamp Exhibition at National Library from 31 August till 2 September2012.

POS MALAYSIA’S
21st ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING 2013
POS MALAYSIA CONTINUES TO SUSTAIN A ROBUST AND DYNAMIC 
PERFORMANCE FOR FINANCIAL YEAR 2013
   
RM1.27 billion revenue recorded for FY 2013

Pos Malaysia today announced its financial results for the Financial Year Ended 31 March 2013. It recorded a revenue of RM1.27 billion which is equivalent to an increase of 7.8% against the preceding year, driven primarily by courier and retail businesses.

These positive developments, coupled with greater cost savings and operational efficiencies brought about by its transformation led to a Profit Before Tax of RM191.9 million and Profit After Tax of RM151.3 million, representing an annual increase of 26.6% and 50.4%, respectively.

Declared 17.5 sen dividend per ordinary share for shareholders

Pos Malaysia declared a final dividend of 9.5 sen per ordinary share less 25% income tax for the financial year ended 31 March 2013, subject to the shareholders’ approval, as per the Annual General Meeting held today. This is in addition to the earlier interim dividend of 8.0 sen per ordinary share less income tax at 25% that was paid on 31 December 2012..

This translates to a net dividend payout of approximately 46.6% of net Profit After Tax consistent with the Company’s policy to provide sustainable returns to our shareholders.

Slower OPEX Growth

Group Operating Expenses (OPEX), meanwhile, rose by 6.0% to RM1.11 billion in tandem with the rising business costs.

The implementation of the Federal Government’s Gazette on Minimum Wage (Amended) Order of 2012 as well as the five-day working week has made it challenging for Pos Malaysia to contain its staff costs which represents 61.4% of the total OPEX.

Nevertheless, lower fuel surcharges during the financial year as well as lower rental, communications and utility expenses helped to mitigate this effect.

Strong and steady contribution from all business areas

Mail remains the largest revenue contributor, accounting for 57.1% of total Group revenue. Revenue from mail business recorded a marginal decline of 0.2% against preceding year to RM724.5 million amidst sustained mail volume.

Nonetheless, Pos Malaysia has stepped up its efforts to diversify its revenue beyond traditional mail which has led to the launch of Direct Mail and Pos Edaran.

Direct Mail provides an alternative for businesses to advertise their products and services through the distribution of mail or physical samples to targeted recipients in an efficient manner.

Pos Edaran leverages on the current mail network to provide value added solutions for our customer’s convenience such as enabling the postmen to sell products such as mobile reloads, personal dispatch services as well as distribution services.

Meanwhile, contribution from the courier and premium postal business posted double digit growth of 28.3% to garner a revenue of RM322.7 million. This translated into higher contribution to Group revenue of 25.4% from 21.4% in the previous year.

E-commerce has spurred demand for this segment to facilitate the delivery of merchandise purchased online. Consequently, PosLaju saw positive growth in the On-Demand retail business segment, leading to revenue from On-Demand services surpassing that of business courier services.

Plans are currently being put in place to increase accessibility to PosLaju’s products and services which includes opening up of more branches, appointment of Authorised Agents as well as extension of the operating hours at selected PosLaju Centres to provide convenience for customers to acquire its services.

Two new services have also been introduced as part of the initiatives under the Transformation Plan, namely Al-Ajwa, which involves trading of products and services from the Middle East incorporating shipping arrangements, as well as Integrated Fulfillment Services (IFS) which comprises end-to-end logistic solutions provided primarily to manufacturing and services industries.

The Retail business contributed 13.8% to the Group’s revenue at RM175.3 million which represented an increase of 10.0% compared to the preceding year.

Retail revenue saw double digit growth on the back of higher commission rates from existing partners and an increase in the number of high-margin transactions as we aggressively expand our financial service offerings.

To this end, two new Strategic Initiatives have been introduced, namely Ar-Rahnu@POS, a secured Shariah-compliant microcredit financing facility as well as PosAssurance, its self-branded life insurance plans which comprises PosHayat and Pos Bestari, developed in collaboration with Uni.Asia Life Assurance Berhad.

KUALA LUMPUR, Wednesday – Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the formation of Malaysia, Pos Malaysia will issue a special collection of Commemorative Stamp and First Day Cover on Malaysia Day that will be sold to the public on Thursday, 19 September 2013. This collection will feature a special stamp that depicts the map of Malaysia against the backdrop of the Malaysian flag as well as the portrait image of the First Prime Minister of Malaysia while the First Day Cover will feature the photographs of the historic occasion during the declaration of Malaysia.

History was created on 16 September 1963 with the incorporation of the Federation of Malaya, Sabah, Sarawak and Singapore under one banner. Although Singapore separated from Malaysia two years later, Malaysia continues to be a symbol of understanding of the region's rich cultural heritage and natural resources that has prospered this country since its inception.

Seven cheers of "Merdeka" that was led by Yang Teramat Mulia Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj ibni Almarhum Sultan Abdul Hamid Halim Shah, the first Prime Minister of Malaysia, in front of 30,000 Malaysians, marked the formation of Malaysia on 16 September 1963 and now, Malaysia is commemorating its 50th anniversary with glorious celebrations all over the nation.

In line with the 56th anniversary of Malaysia’s independence with the theme of My Sovereign Malaysia, My Native Land as well as celebrating the 50th anniversary of Malaysia Day, a special collection of Commemorative Stamp and First Day Cover will be issued to mark the festivity. The issuance of this stamp reminds all Malaysians of the importance of independence, success and prosperity that must be preserved.

“Over the years, Malaysia has gained so much in terms of modernization, industrialization, social as well as economic development and, as a unique country that is a melting pot of culture and ethnicity, there is a lot to talk about our beloved country. This is indeed a momentous occasion for Pos Malaysia and we are very honoured for the opportunity to be part of the celebration of Malaysia’s 50 years of unity, prosperity and harmony by issuing the Malaysia Day Commemorative Stamp and First Day Cover. We hope that stamp collectors as well as all Malaysians will take the opportunity to purchase the philatelic items as a way to express their sense of pride of the nation’s past and triumphs as well as to be kept as a token of remembrance to be shared with the future generation,” said a spokesperson for Pos Malaysia Berhad.

Winning artworkfrom nationwide art contest for children with disabilities used in “Colours of My World” commemorative stamps and first day cover for Universal Children’s Day 2013

KUALA LUMPUR, 18 October 2013 – A set of special stamps featuring the artwork by three children with disabilities in Malaysia were unveiled today to honour and celebrate the abilities of children with disabilities in conjunction with Universal Children's Day 2013. The winning artwork was selected from 120 submissions to the Colours of My World art contest organised by Kakikreatif, Pos Malaysia and UNICEF to mark the 5th Anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

The winners, Stephanie Tam Zhu Shin from Selangor (development disability), LoviraJospely from Sabah (sensory disability) and IntanSyafienaz Mohamad Bakhid from Perak (physical disability), each received a RM10,000 cash prize from POS Malaysia for their efforts.

In explaining their inspiration in creating their pieces, 14-year-old Stephanie cited colourand nature as elements that were part of her winning crayon / oil pastel artwork. Fourteen year-old Lovira was inspired by the concepts of love and friendship that were at the heart of her colour-pencil piece. The 3rd winner, IntanSyafienaz, 17, drew her water colour piece with reflections of Malaysia’s multi-ethnic society as her cultural inspiration. (For more on each winner’s inspiration, please see the flyer attached.)

Every child is a winner

“All entries are eloquent reminders of the outstanding talent and contribution children with disabilities can make,” said Ms. Wivina Belmonte, UNICEF Representative to Malaysia, in her welcoming speech at the unveiling. “A child is not disabled because they cannot walk, see or hear. They are disabled by a society that excludes them. When we see the disability before the child, it is not only wrong for the child, it also deprives the rest of us, of all that child has to offer. Every single one of these paintings from children with disabilities from all over Malaysia reflect the unique and meaningful way in which they see the world around them. What better way to honour their talent, than by celebrating the ability of children with disabilities,” added Ms. Belmonte.

The Colours of My World art competition complements a host of activities facilitated by UNICEF and its various partners for children with disabilities this year.

Celebrating the abilities of every child

This is the second initiative between Malaysia’s postal service and UNICEF. In 2009, Pos Malaysia joined forces with UNICEF to create the Caring Society stamp set to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

“POS Malaysia is deeply moved by the efforts shown by the children in producing beautiful artworks in this art contest. Too often we tend to judge people from their appearances and forget that everybody is talented in their own special way. We should always have faith that there are no disabilities and all are born equal. It is up to us as adults and society as a whole to help empower and transform the less fortunate, especially the children to growinto successful adults and have a sense of belonging in the world” said Dato’ Iskandar Mizal Mahmood, the Group Chief Executive Officer of Pos Malaysia.

“This contest has truly showcased this and by producing the stamps, Pos Malaysia is honoured to be in partnership with UNICEF and Kakikreatif in presenting to all Malaysians and the world how special the children are and we hope this collaborative effort will provide the children with disabilities the recognition that they rightfully deserve. A small ripple in the middle of the ocean can turn into a tsunami over the long journey to reach the shore,” added Dato’ Iskandar Mizal Mahmood.

According to the Head of Kakikreatif, Ms. Low Ngai Yuen, the creative agency was honoured to be a collaborative partner with UNICEF and Pos Malaysia in this competition. “To be inspired by the talented children who are now given a voice through this meaningful project is about reminding ourselves that these children need a go at the maximum quality of life. Kakikreatif looks forward to sustaining thisprogramme in the coming years.”

The limited edition commemorative stamps will go on sale from 22 October 2013 at all Pos Malaysia outlets. On 22 October, the public can also get a first day cover and customers who utilise Pos Malaysia’s mail services will get a very special postmark on their mail with the message "Celebrating the abilities of children with disabilities". In addition, the Colours of My World exhibition of selected artwork by children with disabilities will be on display at Level 6, Pavillion Mall from 18 - 25 October.

KUALA LUMPUR, Wednesday – Pos Malaysia will be issuing a new stamp collection on The Baba and Nyonya Heritage featuring the images of the Baba and Nyonya traditional dress Kebaya Nyonya, beaded slippers, Peranakan townhouse and Nyonya ware. The collection will be made available for sale beginning Friday, 29 November 2013.

Peranakan Chinese and Baba and Nyonya are terms used for the descendants of late 15th to 19th-century Chinese immigrants. Members of this community in Melaka addressed themselves as "Baba and Nyonya". Baba is the address for the men and Nyonya for the women. The Babas and Nyonyas were partially assimilated into the Malay culture, especially in food, dress and language used, while retaining some of the Chinese traditions and culture like religion, name, folk medicine and festival celebrations, thereby creating an interesting mixed culture.

Public can view the historical artefacts and learn more about this unique culture at the Baba and Nyonya Heritage Museum, Bandar Hilir, Melaka operated by the Babas and Nyonyas of Melaka. The traditional dress of the community like the Nyonya Kebaya dress and beaded slippers for instance, have become the catalyst for a new fashion dimension in the country and a favorite choice of attire to be worn during festivals and ceremonies.

“The Baba and Nyonya heritage is a unique culture that can be found in Malaysia, in fact it is a living heritage to this day with the blending of the Chinese and Malay cultures. The stamps will assist to promote this unique cultural heritage to both locals and tourists to learn more about the Baba and Nyonya Heritage. Stamps and philatelic collectors should take this opportunity to get this special collection from any of the Pos Malaysia branch nearest to them,” said a spokesperson for Pos Malaysia Berhad.

This collection will feature two designs, measuring 30mm by 48mm in 60 sen and 80 sen denominations. The collection also include First Day Cover, priced at 50 sen each and can be purchased at all Pos Malaysia outlets. Folder at RM 5.50 each is only available at selected outlets.

KUALA LUMPUR, Tuesday – Pos Malaysia Berhad (“Pos Malaysia”) today issued a statement to warn the public against buying, selling and using counterfeit stamps which have been found to be distributed and sold in the market.

Postal inspectors from Pos Malaysia have been probing a possible network of stamp counterfeiters and have requested the assistance of the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) and the Royal Malaysian Police to examine the possibility that a network engaged in the sales of counterfeit stamps might be active in the Klang Valley area. More than 50,000 counterfeit stamps have been seized since the investigation commenced.

“The public needs to be aware that there are fake stamps in the market. We should make sure we are buying genuine stamps from Pos Malaysia outlets, mobile post offices or Pos Malaysia’s authorised stamp dealers,’ said Dato’ Iskandar Mizal Mahmood, Group Chief Executive Officer of Pos Malaysia.

The offence of manufacturing, distributing and selling of counterfeit stamps is punishable under Section 65 of the Postal Services Act 2012 carrying fines of up to RM500,000 or imprisonment for up to 5 years or both.

Members of the public are advised to alert Pos Malaysia on any information on suspected illicit activity of manufacturing, distributing, and selling of counterfeit stamps by individuals or group of individuals. This may be made at any Pos Malaysia outlet or via e-mail at care@pos.com.my or Pos Malaysia Berhad facebook.

Complete set of 4 stamps

undefined    undefined
First Day Cover (50sen)                                          Miniature Sheet (RM3.00)

KUALA LUMPUR, Friday – Pos Malaysia today unveiled a new postage stamp to raise awareness of Malaysia’s endangered big cats. The stamp will go on sale on Monday, 23 December 2013.

“Big cats” is a term commonly used in reference to large wild cats. Big cats, small wild cats and domestic cats are members of the felidae family, which is a biological classification.

There are only 9 species of wild cats found in Malaysia; some can only be found in Peninsular Malaysia, whereas some are in Sabah and Sarawak only. The extinction of wild cats in Malaysia is due to habitat loss, coupled with high demand from poachers and traditional medicine practitioners. Tigers for example, are heavily poached and traded for their bones, skin and other body parts, that are mainly used in traditional medicine. Forest conversion and habitat fragmentation arising from developments are also major threats to the survival of these wild cats in Malaysia.

“Pos Malaysia is happy to produce stamp collections that will help to create awareness as well as educate the public of the endangered big cats of Malaysia. We hope that the stamps will inspire the public to get involved in important efforts to address the conservation needs of endangered species such as the big cats of Malaysia,” said a spokesperson of Pos Malaysia.

“This is an easy way for individuals to use their purchasing power to help create awareness on the vanishing big cats of Malaysia every time they mail a letter.

The Endangered Big Cats of Malaysia Stamp Collection will feature 4 stamp designs measuring 50mm x 30mm in size and are exclusively printed on SPM watermarked phosphor coated paper. The setenant design in 60sen denomination features the Leopard (Panthera Pardus) and the 80sen denomination stamp design per piece features the Sunda Clouded Leopoard (Neofelis Diardi) and Clauded Leopard (Neofelis nebulosa).

This collection will feature a Miniature Sheet that is available in RM3.00 denomination. The stamp contained in the Miniature Sheet is at 30mm x 50mm in size featuring the design of Malayan tiger(Panthera Tigris Jacksoni).

Other philatelic items include First Day cover at 50 sen each and can be purchased at all Pos Malaysia outlets and Folders at RM 5.50 each are available at selected outlets.

** Further details are included in the enclosed brochure of the stamp collection.

Stamp enthusiasts are advised to join SODA (Standing Order Deposit Account) to enjoy the convenience of receiving their stamps and other philatelic products without having to queue up at the post office on the day of issue. In addition to that customers can now enjoy the convenience of Philately Online at www.posonline.com.my to open SODA account, top up and check for the balance in their SODA account and update personal details.
