Kazpost recently announced the opening of its second automated postal service point in Astana. This is a new self-service format to send and receive packages.
According to the Kazpost press statement, the opening of the second point was dedicated to the Nauruz celebrations. By the end of the current year, one more is planned to be established in the city. The same service centres will be opened in Almaty and Karaganda. In the regions, this service will be introduced during 2016 and 2017. The monthly volume will be 8,000 packages.
The post centres are located on 37 Beibitshilik Street and 37/9 Turan Avenue next to the Khan Shatyr shopping mall. Both centres operate from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m., also on the weekend.
In order to receive small packets, parcels and packages, a customer should enter the tracking number of the package or a mobile phone number in a special terminal installed in the post centre. This terminal identifies the requested package and provides the number of the stand, row and cell where the package is to be found. After that, a client just goes into the hall to the required stand and takes the package off the shelf.
It is also possible to independently send the package to any location in Kazakhstan. To do so, a customer should buy special packaging with the tracking number, the price of which is already included in the delivery charge, and register the package with the help of the terminal. After the registration is completed, a customer should press the “Send” button and get a check. The registered package should be left on the shelf for its further transportation.
