From now on everyone can independently and without wasting time at a post office prepare postal items for sending and present them to a post office without queuing, or even easier – to hand it to a postman serving your company using only electronic tools. To send a letter with documents or a larger parcel has never been that convenient, fast and simple, " Head of Strategy and Development Department of Lithuania Post Mikas Jovaišas said.

The operating principle of e-self service is simple: the business client has to connect to the e-self-service system of Lithuania Post, enter the necessary data online, form a sending order, and affix a special printed sticker on the outgoing postal item. Such a postal item only needs to be handed to the postal worker serving the company or organization, or presented to a post office to be sent. Postal items prepared at e-self-service are accepted without waiting in a queue.
