Mongol Post JSC (Монгол Шуудан) is the national postal service of Mongolia.[1] The formerly state-owned Mongol Post was transformed to joint stock company on April 11, 2016 by offering 34 percent of the total shares to the public. It was founded by the Mongolian People's Republic in 1935 and went under several different names before its current structure was established in 1994.[2] The Mongol Post JSC is charge of postal services, delivery and issuing of postage stamps. The headquarters are in Ulaanbaatar, and the company employs over 900 people and has over 389 post offices. [1]

The company is charged with providing the following postal and communication services at the pot offices.[1][3]

Of Mongolia's 3 million inhabitants, 30% are nomadic, and 61% of Ulaanbaatar's population live in informal settlements.[4] This population had "no consistent addressing system" until May 2016 when Mongol Post started using a geocoding system provided by what3words.[5][6]

History

The modern postal system of Mongolia started with the establishment of a state committee for post and telegraph by the Mongolian People's Republic. From 1935 the postal system had a succession of names commencing as the 'City Post Committee', including 'Central Post', 'Telegraph, Post and Communication Office', until 2002 when finally renamed Mongol Post.[2]

The 'Mongol Post Bank', a private bank that operated from 1994 to 2009, was never related to the 'Mongol Post' organisation.[7]
