Line Man, an on-demand professional services assistance app “serving the needs in your daily life at any time”, has releases its new Postal service – beta version (for Android only).



 

The company said Postal was aimed at local merchants and small and medium-sized enterprises, “offering nationwide, door-to-door parcel delivery – fast, affordable and secure”.

It said that after the “great success” of its food delivery service, Postal was an expansion of its services.

Line Man said the service included parcel pick-up from a customer’s door, with delivery to destinations nationwide at a “reasonable price”

It said the new service was a collaboration with Alpha, an “expert” in delivery services nationwide for e-commerce – targeting merchants looking to send goods quickly but who do not want the hassle of making the deliveries themselves.

Postal picks up goods between 8am and 10pm and delivers them via two options including delivery by Alpha, which handles all deliveries, from pick up to destination (only available in Bangkok and Nonthaburi, Pathum Thani and Samut Prakan). The cost is based on parcel size, with next-day delivery “guaranteed”.

The other option is EMS – picking up parcels and delivering them to post offices, which forwards them nationwide. 

The cost is based on parcel weight, with next-day delivery (before 11am) guaranteed at the post office and within three days at the destination guaranteed.

Line Man said the Postal service “offers seamless experience of delivery, requiring a minimum of information to use”. 

“There is no need for the senders to type a lot of information. They can just drop a pin on a map on their phones to indicate their address,” it said. 

“In addition, the sender can check delivery status [including an EMS tracking number] in real time, and share that status with the receiver via Line. In term of security, Line Man also offers insurance for delivery goods, up to Bt2,000.”

To celebrate the launch of Postal, from Tuesday until Sunday, Line Man is offering a special promotion of free delivery a day (up to 10 boxes) on Android only (limited).
