Strategy Goals


The Decree No.78 of 29/03/1423 AH by the Saudi Council of Ministers was issued to approve the regulation of the Saudi Post Corporation. The regulation stipulates in Article (2) that the Corporation shall advance postal services to a similar level of the services provided in the more developed countries through the following:

  • The Corporation shall operate on a commercial basis and shall have the flexibility and authorities enabling it to undertake its tasks and preparing it for privatization at a later stage.
  • The Corporation shall develop modern methods for providing postal services according to the international standards.

In pursuance of the above, the regulation granted the Corporation the legal personality and the independent financial liability and conferred on the Board of Directors thereof the widest powers to issue the financial, administrative and regulatory authorities and to have the flexibility required to overcome the obstacles to achieve such objectives.

To overcome the challenges, the Corporation developed a detailed strategic plan emanating from its following vision and mission:


To be an independently effective commercial postal operator with diverse areas of activity, operating on a commercial basis and providing high quality public services and competitive commercial products.


Providing integrated and innovative postal, financial and logistic services for enterprises and individuals, which contribute to the support of e-government and e-commerce, using the latest world technologies, the highest quality and excellence standards, and national qualified personnel.

The plan consists of three main areas:

  1. First: Strategic structure of the Corporation (networks' structure).
  2. Second: Development of business units.
  3. Third: Development of the organizational structure and work methods.

The plan aims at achieving several objectives, particularly:

  • Developing the regulatory frameworks of the postal sector and an advanced postal operation system in the Kingdom.
  • Developing postal services provided by the Corporation and updating and developing the Corporation performance in the postal market, through developing and updating operations, promoting and diversifying the existing products, customer care, raising the service level, cooperating with strategic partners to develop the important products.
  • Expanding new, profitable, and significantly growing activities, products, and services.

The strategy of the Corporation is aimed at developing the strategic structure and updating and preparing a number of its departments to be independent business units which commercially operate and cooperate with each other to provide excellent postal service at competitive and profitable prices that achieve attractive returns. Each unit is considered as a service provider authorized by Saudi Post. Therefore, some units are transformed into independent companies wholly owned by the Corporation or jointly owned with the private sector under the supervision of the Corporation after being transformed into a holding company, establishing an authority to regulate the post operation and approving the postal system.

Accordingly, the main objectives, policies and implementation mechanisms were defined as per the following tables:
