SA Post Office conveyance delays resolved

Home / Blog / SA Post Office conveyance delays resolved


The South African Post Office is pleased to inform its customers its mail conveyance delays have been resolved. Full conveyancing capacity will be restored as of 15 August 2015.

In 2014, SA Post Office went through a bruising 4 month strike over a labour dispute, which paralysed mail delivery and other operations, with the backlog of mail deliveries extending well into 2015. Officials acknowledged the damage, but said changes in attitude, cost cutting and rationalisation were paying off.

Losses of R102 million are expected in the current financial year, with profits only from 2017. SA Post Office showed a net loss of almost R360m in 2013/14 and R179m in 2012/13.

The Post Office is rationalising delivery routes, looking at managing its own fleet of vehicles rather than renting them, rationalising its outlets as it is moving to kiosks and mobile structures. Efforts are also under way to repay the R952m the Post Office owes to suppliers and creditors. Small, medium and micro enterprises are being prioritised.

Following the 2014 strike, the Post Office board resigned in November and Simosizwe Lushaba was appointed administrator, and he became chairman of the board when it was appointed in August 2015. However, several key management posts remain unfilled, leaving, for example, Mathonsi doubling up as acting chief executive, while continuing as chief operations officer. Vacant top jobs are expected to be filled soon as disciplinary proceedings against incumbents are at a stage of settlement talks.
