Österreichische Post AG Express Mail Service (EMS) now offers new features

Pressemeldung from 29.04.2003

Delivery until 10 a.m., customer-defined time, and personal delivery

As of 1 May 2003, the best known express service and market leader in Austria - Österreichische Post AG’s EMS - offers its customer new services.

Always on time: EMS customer-defined delivery time
Starting from May 2003, Österreichische Post AG’s customers can specify precisely the time they want their EMS items to be delivered. From Monday to Friday, customer-defined delivery will be possible at one-hour intervals, with a tolerance margin of plus/minus 30 minutes. For a € 9 surcharge, Österreichische Post AG will deliver EMS items in all of Austria’s provincial capitals between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. at the time specified by the customer.  Items can be mailed from every post office in Austria.

No time to waste: EMS delivery until 10 a.m. on the next day
For all those who have no time to waste, EMS offers an excellent alternative, starting on 1 May. For a € 3 surcharge, Österreichische Post AG will deliver EMS items in all of Austria’s provincial capitals no later than by 10 a.m. on the next day (from Monday to Friday). With this service, too, EMS items can be mailed from all Austrian post offices.

Secure and confidential: EMS personal
As of May 2003, EMS item senders can mark items as “personal”  This ensures that the item will be delivered personally to no one else but the intended recipient. This service, which is being offered for delivery in all of Austria’s provincial capitals, costs € 3.

EMS - the number one among Austria’s express services
With 1,669 post offices and 120 post partners all over Austria as well as 5,000 postal delivery staff members in rural areas, Österreichische Post AG offers an unrivalled number of opportunities to mail express items. EMS items are reliably delivered by not later than 12 noon on the next working day - or, with the new features, by 10 a.m. or at a customer-defined time in all of Austria’s provincial capitals.

EMS on weekends, too
At 123 post offices, you can mail EMS items on Saturdays, or even on Sundays at 10 post offices.  If requested by the customer and against a surcharge of € 3, EMS items are also delivered on Saturdays throughout Austria.
