SLOVAK POST (Slovenská Pošta), based in Banská Bystrica, received, transported and delivered almost 350 million first and second class letters, parcels, advertising consignments and postal cheques in 2007.

That was 55 million more than the previous year, which equalled an increase of 19 percent, SITA wrote.
As far as profit, Slovak Post ended 2007 with a pre-tax profit of Sk311.9 million, which exceeded its target by Sk16.95 million, or 5.75 percent, spokesperson Andrea Pivarčiová told SITA.

However, that number was a 44 percent drop from Slovak Post's gross profit in 2006, which reached Sk554 million.

In 2007, Slovak Post accepted 5,448 complaints about its postal services, which was 578 fewer than in 2006. It registered 4,491 complaints about its universal postal services, which means there was one complaint for every 54,488 first and second class domestic consignment.

Slovak Post is wholly owned by the state. It currently has the exclusive right to deliver letters and advertising up to 50 grammes. This right is compensation for its obligation to deliver even to remote villages for affordable rates. It was granted the universal postal licence for 10 years in 2003.
