Selected schools will also be receiving Hope Boxes that contain postcards and hope wishes for the students. This initiative aims to promote the wonderful art of letter writing, connecting Malaysians and encouraging creative writing among the younger generation, with cash prizes to be won by schools with the highest number of entries.
During the event, Pos Malaysia unveiled the design of a unique commemorative stamp for World Post Day, symbolising the enduring legacy of postal services. The event concluded with the flagging off of Pos Malaysia’s first fleet of electric vans by YB Ahmad Fahmi Mohamed Fadzil, showcasing the organisation’s commitment to a sustainable future.
Charles remarked “As we continue with our transformation journey, we are proud of the essential role that we play helping to build trust and connect Malaysians for a better tomorrow. We stand as a ‘lighthouse’, championing sustainability for both Malaysia and the logistics sector.”
“The inauguration of our first electric vans marks a significant step forward towards achieving our goal of making 100% of our deliveries via electric vehicles by 2030 and a key component of our commitment to be net-zero by 2050,” he continued.
The electric vans join an already impressive 105 electric bikes in Pos Malaysia’s fleet, delivering sustainably the ‘smile in the last mile’ across the Klang Valley, Johor, Kedah, Penang and Perak, and have already accumulated a staggering travel-distance of 153,363km as at the end of September this year.
