About Lao Post
Lao Post is a postal company whose goal is to manage all postal services in Lao. For those unaware, Lao is a country in Southeast Asia. The company Lao Post specializes in delivering documents, parcels, and letters throughout the country. Thanks to good ties with the logistics firm DHL, customers who do not reside in Lao can easily send a parcel from their home to Lao via DHL. There is also the option to send packages internationally and track their delivery status on the main homepage.
Lao Post was founded in 1975. This era is after the overthrowing of the monarchial government in Lao. In more recent times, Lao Post has gained the financial backup of countries such as China. Also, opening trade relations with the U.S (in 2004) has been nothing short of a boost in growth for companies such as Lao Post. Their headquarters are in the city of Vientiane, the capital of Lao.
This is also the exact location where DHL's headquarters are located. Hence, this allows Lao Post to function alongside and together with DHL. It's worth knowing that Lao Post's headquarters is the only office where airmail tracking service is offered. Overall, there are beyond 25 offices of Lao Post spread across the entire nation. These offices are placed in the most crucial parts of Lao.
For deliveries within the nation, it takes around 2-3 business days to fulfill an order. Lao Post takes different periods to complete a delivery, depending on the region you send your package to. For instance, for deliveries made to South, North, and Central American countries, the total time taken is 2-3 weeks. On the other hand, parcels sent to the continent of Africa or European countries take approximately 3-4 weeks to complete.
The standard fee of Lao Post for deliveries within Lao is $7. If you opt for the Domestic and International Express Mail (EMS) service, you'll be charged around $12. Akin to the delivery time, the shipping cost fluctuates according to the region to send a package. On the homepage of Lao Post, customers can easily track their orders via the tracking tool. An alternate method is to visit a Lao Post office nearby and track the order with the Lao Post tracking number. With ClickPost's tracking API, you can easily track all your packages sent to Lao.
