POST AND TELECOMMUNICATIONS DEPARTMENT
Postal Corporation of Jamaica (PostCorp): This entity was formed to be a transition company to commercialize and modernize the postal service as certain modernization initiatives could not be implemented within the legislative framework of the PTD. Its Chief Executive Officer is the Postmaster General.
The plan is to promulgate a new Postal Services Bill which will result in the creation of a new statutory corporation to be known as “Jamaica Post”, which will assume the functions of the PTD and PostCorp. Subsequently, the PTD and PostCorp will be dissolved.
Post and Telecommunications Department (PTD): Headed by the Postmaster General and the largest entity within the ministry, this entity’s mandate is to provide efficient and cost effective postal and related services to its customers. It operates through a head office and a network of post offices and postal agencies that offer a full range of postal services, including the acceptance and delivery of mail and the sale of postage stamps. It is also a major conduit through which the GOJ channels pensions to pensioners.
Postal services are offered Monday to Friday 8:00am to 5:00pm.
