I booked an Express Mail (courier service) addressed to my wife for delivery in Federal B Area Karachi through Bahrain Post Office. The Bahrain Post Office Tracking System read that the item has been dispatched to destination. The package left Bahrain at midnight and reached Karachi Airport Monday morning.

After arriving at Karachi Airport, the parcel vanished as there is no more information available. It is amazing that my parcel travelled thousands of miles in one night but could not reach its destination in three days since it arrived in Pakistan.

Bahrain Post Office Tracking System in the column of final delivery of the article for the last three days reports “information not available” – reason being that no one in Pakistan Post wants to take responsibility for any work or maybe they don’t have time to attend to such updates, despite the fact that Pakistan has specific mutual agreements with foreign postal authorities on these express mails.

Pakistan Post International Tracking System did not show that the parcel even existed, the reason being that the Tracking System does not appear to be working on incoming international parcels. The webmaster of Pakistan Post Office appears to have more interest, and actually efficiency, to maintaining and keeping updated his own personal website showing which courses he attended, which services he rendered, which countries he visited, his personal photographs and information is present while no attention is given to the official information required by people who use this service.
