With more people shopping online, the postman will be working harder to get those packages delivered.

From July 12, they will be delivered on Saturdays as well, said Singapore Post.

Its call centre services also run 24 hours each day now, to cater to online shoppers who may want to enquire about their deliveries day or night.

To help its mailmen with their growing loads, SingPost is giving them bigger, more comfortable three-wheelers that can hold more parcels.
