Flexibility, accessibility, and diversity in services are some of the things we look for in an efficient courier service. We found all those in Pos Laju.
Pos Laju offers both local and international delivery services and 8 package plans to choose from at competitive rates and benefits. All bookings done online or via the app include a pick-up service at no extra charge.
You can take your pick from having a same-day or next-day delivery service to 9.2 million addresses in Malaysia alone and over 200 countries and territories internationally. We also like how Pos Laju has delivery resources for the vision-impaired.
What’s more, Pos Laju understands that not all of us have the time to wait for a parcel pick-up. So, it gives clients the option to drop off parcels at designated drop-off points like 7-11.
We also like the payment options that Pos Laju gives its clients — for example, you can opt to do the “pay with credit now” option. But in case you don’t have a credit card, you can top up your credits via bank deposit.
And, of course, any established courier service like Pos Laju has insurance for the packages you ship, whether local or international.
Overall, we like the diversity not only in delivery options but in the payment schemes Pos Laju has. It’s easy to see why this made it into our list of the best courier services in Malaysia.
