A post office is an organisation that provides postal services to a customer and is usually run by a government. Obviously the post office cannot offer the much faster and sophisticated service like a courier company such as Aerospeed Couriers. Clients can obtain various services from the post office such as handing in letter, and parcels for delivery. In the past, post offices also sent and delivered telegrams. On request, a post may offer a registered service, whereby the client can ensure that their parcel or letter is signed for by the person to whom it was addressed. A Post office sells postage stamps, and various containers like envelopes and boxes to contain postal items. The post office often also has depots that are separate from the actual post office. A typical example is the red pillar boxes that are in used for depositing mail in England and the rest of the United Kingdom. These pillar boxes and are depots for the Royal Mail. In some countries, the post office also sells revenue stamps and handles other taxes such as renewal of car licences and other permits. In some countries the post office also take requests for passports and other documents. In certain countries, the post office also offers a banking service. The most senior officer at a post office is usually called a postmaster and the national head of a post office is usually called a postmaster general. In some countries like the USA the head of the post office [called USPS (United States Postal Service)] has a cabinet post in the government. The term post office originated in the 17th century in England, when a private mailing service was allowed by law. In England there were post riders, who were mounted couriers that carried the mail along a post route. The post route had posting stations or posting houses every 2 hours along the route at which horses could be exchanged for fresh mounts, so that the mail arrived as quickly as possible once had been sent. Inns often doubled as post houses. In modern times, when horses and carriages fell from use and were replaced with cars, trucks and aircraft the term post house was no longer used.
One of the big advantages of using courier is the time it saves. We can either do a time management course or use courier :).
