With the rapid expansion of the online shopping market, public demand for the flexible collection of postal items has been on the rise. In view of this, Hongkong Post has commenced the establishment of iPostal Stations as early as 2016 across the territory, enabling the public to pick up postal items at their convenience. Up to now, 21 iPostal Stations have been established.
New iPostal Stations to be set up in Oi Tung Estate (Second Floor, Oi Tung Shopping Centre, Oi Tung Estate, Shau Kei Wan, Hong Kong) and Siu Sai Wan Plaza (First Floor, Siu Sai Wan Plaza, Siu Sai Wan Estate, Siu Sai Wan Road, Chai Wan, Hong Kong) will commence operation on January 7 (Tuesday). The total number of iPostal Stations in Hong Kong will reach 23 by then. Senders can set any of the abovementioned iPostal Stations as the delivery address for their Smart Post, Local Parcel and Local CourierPost items through the EC-Ship platform, while recipients can set any of these stations as the default pick-up point for their items with a Mail Collection Number.
Detailed information is as follows:

To facilitate the greater use of iPostal Stations, Hongkong Post will continue to expand its network. It is scheduled to set up 20 iPostal Stations in the first quarter of 2020 and more than 80 gradually in the following three quarters. This will make the total number of iPostal Stations more than 120 in the following year, covering all 18 districts in Hong Kong.
Details of iPostal Stations' locations and ways to use them are available at ec-ship.hongkongpost.hk/platform/en/iPostalStation.jsp. For enquiries, please call the Hongkong Post General Enquiry Hotline at 2921 2222.
