Pos Malaysia users can now fill in their consignment note in-app, then have it printed at the post office. Starting in Klang Valley, the feature rolls out nationwide on Aug 17. — AZHAR MAHFOF/The Star

Those in Klang Valley planning to send mail through Pos Malaysia can now fill in the consignment note before heading to the post office.

In a Facebook post, Pos Malaysia Bhd said it would be rolling out the e-consignment feature nationwide starting Aug 17, where customers would be able to fill in the form digitally, then have it printed at a Pos Laju kiosk or outlet.

Customers can find the e-consignment form on the Pos Mobile app, which is available for Android and iOS users.

A Pos Malaysia spokesperson confirmed that their mobile app had already implemented the feature, though users could only print at selected outlets for now.

A check by LifestyleTech showed that the system already listed 21 locations – all in Klang Valley – where users could print out the mobile consignment note.

In the app’s home page, there is a ‘New Consignment’ tile, which leads users to the form.

The app automatically fills out the address once users type in the first few details, like a street name or apartment building.

It also enables users to pull the recipient’s address from a list of favourites.

Users will also be asked the weight and value of the item to be posted, as well as to provide a description. The system then calculates a delivery charge accordingly.

Once users fill out the form, the app generates a QR code and a reference number, which users can then take to an outlet to get the consignment note printed.
