“The Islamic Republic of Iran Post Company has signed an MoU for cooperation with Germany’s logistics firm DHL and Dutch package delivery firm TNT Express, its chief executive has said. Hossein Mehri said the state-run Iranian company had made the decision ‘in order to provide better services to customers and compete with foreign rivals’. ‘DHL, with a fleet of more than 250 aircraft, has the largest and most unique air and ground transportation network. Why should we not tap this potential for better services to the people?’ he said. Under the agreement, Iran Post Company will collect local parcels on behalf of the foreign companies and deliver them to those firms in order to reduce the forwarding time, Mehri added. DHL is owned by German mail and logistics group Deutsche Post, providing express courier delivery, freight forwarding and supply chain services. It has been operating in Iran for years through a representative but its cooperation with the state-run Iranian post company is the first in its kind.” (Press TV, “Iran post company links up with DHL, TNT,” 7/14/2015)
