What is Speed Post?
Speed Post is an express delivery service from India Post. Letters and parcels are delivered at a speed much faster than conventional postal mail to specified Indian cities and towns. The Speed Post service can also be used for deliveries locally within the city.
You can also use it to send articles to international locations that are in India Post’s service network. In partnership with Universal Postal Union, EMS Speed Post also offers services to 99 other countries.
There’s no guess work involved on the delivery time frames. India Post has fixed delivery norms for the cities and towns it serves. It delivers on exactly what its name implies…Post delivered speedily.
The letters and parcels can weigh up to 35 kg.
Speed, reliability and value; these three words are the hallmark of the service. Quite appropriately, the tag line used by India Post to promote this service is ‘We deliver excellence’.
How reliable is Speed Post?
The reliability of the Speed Post service can be gauged from the fact that almost all articles are delivered as per the delivery norms. In fact, as per studies conducted, 99% of the letters and parcels booked through Speed Post are delivered as per commitment.
What makes the reliability factor even more impressive is the fact that India Post handles over 40000000 articles through Speed Post every month!
It is not surprising then that this service has been the undisputed market leader in the domestic delivery market, despite all the intense competition from Indian and international brands, for almost three decades.
