Welcome to the digital age Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPost)!

The agency plans to continue the process of replacing aging vehicles and acquiring more mail vans and motorcycles for letter carriers.
PHLPost employs some 7,000 full-time regular employees and currently manages a transport fleet of about 840 vehicles nationwide.
