Pathao Parcel Service is now available all Nepal: Find cost

Leading ride-sharing app Pathao has made its “Pathao Parcel” service available all over Nepal from May 31st, 2024 a few months after its launch on August 09, 2023. The service was launched marking the 4th anniversary of its Car Lite service. The company’s spokesman Shashank Thapa said the service will help customers deliver or receive goods within Kathmandu.

The company says that if the merchants within the Kathmandu Valley give more than 20 parcels weighing 1 kg, each parcel costs Rs 79 for delivery while pick up is free.

The service has come to full-scale extension after months of pilot project within Kathmandu. “The company has established offices across the country, Pathao spokesman Shashank Shumsher Thapa says, “In the last five months, Pathao Parcel has provided delivery services to over five hundred businesses and merchants.”

Pathao Parcel service is available from its mobile app. The company launched its shipping service with the slogan “Birsinu Ta Swabhahik Ho! Pathao Parcel Chhadai Chha Ni” (Forgetting is natural, but there’s Pathao Parcel).

The company says that it will provide a ‘dashboard’ to the merchants associated with Pathao Parcel and the merchants can monitor where their goods have reached through the dashboard itself.
