THE Balearic Postal Services have improved and have the statistics to prove it, as last year they increased deliveries and in this way reached more than 100'000 Balearic residents.

The Balearic Postal Services increased the delivery routes to include 121 more delivery routes which helped reach over 100'000 residents and businesses in 2004.

This new improved service also meant that the Post Office created 22 new jobs last year in different towns on the islands.
The postal delivery routes that were changed and increased last year were mostly in urban areas (91 routes), and the remaining changes were made in rural areas or in small villages.

It has also been noted that the Balearic Postal Services have improved working conditions and provided improved postal services to more villages and rural areas. The Post Office has extended postal delivery times, as well as extending post office opening hours.

The areas that benefit more from these new improved delivery routes, are Can Pastilla and Marratxí, who both received three more delivery routes last year.

Two new delivery routes were created in Palma, an additional one in Andratx, Cala d'Or, Llucmajor, Palmanyola, Santa María, Santa Ponça, Son Ferriol, Es Castell (Minorca) and Ibiza.

In addition, the Post Office has improved post box services for those people who live in areas where there is no official postal address. The Post Office has installed post boxes in the entrance or on the entrance road to these areas, so that residents are able to check their post everyday.

This new service is very effective and has helped postal service to reach areas that have grown recently (for example parts of Palma, Marratxi and Llucmajor), said a spokesperson from the company.

The Post Office has answered all postal requests and installed 38 new post boxes for people living in an area that has no postal address.
FURTHERMORE the Post Office has opened new post offices in small villages and towns, where residents can go to post parcels, packets and letters.
In order to make this possible, these new post offices have reduced opening hours, as well as having help from the relevant town councils.
The Balearic Postal Services supply and manage staff at these new post offices and also take care of the maintenance of the buildings.
