POS Quick View
Pos Malaysia Berhad is a post services company in Malaysia. The company was corporatized in 1990 from the governmental owned Jabatan Perkhidmatan Pos Malaysia.
Pos Malaysia provides postal and related services, transport logistics, printing and insertion, counter collection and payment agency services for a range of financial transactions, such as bill payments, remittance, insurance and unit trusts.
The company holds an exclusive concession to provide mail services through its network of over 850 branches and mini post offices in Malaysia.
The yesteryears of Pos Malaysia Berhad can be traced back to the early 1800s with the establishment of postal services first in the Straits Settlements (Penang, Malacca and Singapore) and gradually, it covered the whole Malaya by early 20th century.
Letters were then conveyed through despatch riders or special messengers. Instead of postage stamps, fees were collected when letters were handed in at the Post Office. Letters posted were given a receipt.
This system, however, changed when the Indian stamps overprinted with crown and Straits’ stamps overprinted with dollars and cents were introduced in 1867. The first inaugural definitive set of postage stamps was introduced in 1901.
What started as a medium for the transmissions of letters, newspapers and business documents, the postal service soon evolved into a multiple services provider. It began to venture into parcel delivery, registrations, insurance service, transaction of money (postal order and money order) and investment of funds (Post Office Saving Bank).
