In November, the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (Icasa) informed PostNet that come Tuesday next week it may no longer courier reserved postal services as it did not have a licence to do so.
Icasa acted on a recommendation by the Complaints and Compliance Committee following a complaint lodged by the South African Post Office about PostNet also offering reserved postal services to the public.
The Post Office said it was the only entity licensed in terms of the Postal Services Act to courier packages weighing a kilogram or less.
