Mobile Post Office


             On October 8, 2005, an earthquake of over 7 magnitudes struck the northern region of Pakistan, 95 kilometers north east of the capital Islamabad which caused massive destruction.

       The Universal Postal Union (UPU) International Bureau immediately sought to ensure that postal exchanges between the postal administration of Pakistan and other postal administrations continued without interruption and that the postal network destroyed by the earthquake was restored as quickly as possible.

        An Emergency Assistance Project, aimed at restoring the Postal Services of Pakistan was prepared. The UPU was of the view that top priority for the Postal Administration of Pakistan was to establish Mobile Post Offices by utilizing trucks to provide Postal Services in the affected areas.

        In this connection, financial resources from the UPU development Cooperation Budget were allocated to provide the Postal Administration of Pakistan with one truck. This is how idea of a Mobile Post Office was conceived.
