Qatar Post, also known as Q-Post, is the national postal service provider in Qatar. It is wholly owned by the Government of Qatar and is headquartered in Doha, the capital city of the country. Formally known as Qatar Postal Services Company, it was set up in 1950 in what was then a sleepy town. With the discovery of oil and the subsequent boom in economic activities, Q-Post got a shot in the arm and started expanding rapidly. Today, it is the largest and most profitable State-owned player in logistics & supply chain management, Express Mail Service or EMS, money transfers and is making rapid strides in the E-commerce sector too. It is well-known that the E-commerce boom across the Middle Eastern countries is surpassing all forecasts and expectations. Pandemic-induced lockdowns have further fuelled this growth.
Some analysts predict that E-commerce sales may well exceed US$ 69 billion by 2021-end. In 2017, this figure was a paltry US$ 4.3 billion. Qatar Post has invested heavily in technology over the last few decades. Today, it is an ultra-modern logistics giant that covers not only the Middle East, but also most of the major international markets. The company has 130 mailboxes located strategically around the country. This number might appear miniscule at first glance. However, Qatar is not a very big country and the population density is just over 170 every square kilometer as per available records. Before it waded into the E-commerce shipping business, Qatar Post was well-known for its PO Box services and money transfers.
The company has since then leveraged AI-enabled technologies to scale up its operations, making it the most influential player in the region. In fact, Qatar Post has been consistently positioning itself as a logistics and supply chain solutions provider, shedding its previous image as a postal services provider. From a logistics perspective, Qatar Post has several state-of-the-art services. It has its own parcel delivery services for both its domestic market and for international destinations. These are offered in Standard, Express, and Post Premium versions. An additional delivery option for overseas markets is the Priority service, which is easily the fastest mail delivery system the country has to offer.
It also specialises in freight forwarding services which can be easily customised for various businesses and their unique requirements. The ‘E-delivery’ service that was introduced a few years ago has revolutionized the way parcels are tracked. This is a fully operational fulfillment centre set up mostly to cater to the growing number of people who purchase almost everything online. Q-Post also excels in-home deliveries of products. As of 2021, it operates in over 200 countries, in addition to the dynamic Middle Eastern market. Do you want to go live with Qatar Post in a mere 24 hours?
