VELOTAX

   

A company that is operating for many years, mainly for goods and parcels with offices in many parts of Colombia. Not very much known that it also carried letters, however, the company is still operating these days.

 

This is an example for many operators offering specialized messenger services in Colombia today, due to the virtually inexistent official national postal service, which handles mainly incoming mail from UPU countries and less internal mail service which is handled nowadays by over 300 private messenger carriers, authorized and not authorized, far more efficient than the Government Postal Administration.

Sample of a handstamp used on mail carried by that company.
