The service has revolutionized over the years from basic letter sending and receipt to include more wholesome and contemporary services to clients. These days, there are fewer deliveries made via post offices thanks to electronic mail and delivery apps. With these changes, post offices have had to adapt to the new environment and offer updated services.
