Poslaju Kuching Utara, the main Poslaju branch serving the Petra Jaya area has opened this week, signalling better parcel distribution for the national courier service, Poslaju.
Located within Matang Jaya, the new office occupies a standalone shop building in Taman Lee Ling at Matang Jaya. Located just behind E-Mart Lee Ling (Matang), Poslaju Kuching Utara is hard to miss since the signboard is quite prominent.
Based on our observation, Poslaju Kuching Utara is equipped with the latest technology with parcels sent over the counter getting their tracking numbers instantly updated upon completion of a parcel drop-off.
The new headquarters also comes with a numbering system to manage queues, and a dedicated window for customers to claim their package.
Also noticed is office space located above the building, with the back of the building used for parcel sorting.
Despite the positives, the new headquarters does have limited space for parking and moving around the building itself is slightly narrow.
Anyway, the opening of Poslaju Kuching Utara means that those from Petra Jaya, especially major satellite towns like MetroCity Matang, Samariang, Petra Jaya and Petra Jaya, need not travel to the Main Post Office in the city center to collect or send their parcels anymore.
Operation hours of Poslaju Kuching Utara follows any standard branch, with the collection counter closing at 6PM.
Parcels can be delivered to the office on weekdays, but Saturdays would be reserved for collection only, in which the office would be closed.
