Urgent Mail Service ( UMS ) by Pakistan Post offers speedy delivery with ability to track your packages.
When compared with other services like TCS, OCS etc it is very economical.
Within city rates are Rs. 35 for a package upto 500 grams.
Outside city rate is Rs. 59 for all cities of Pakistan.
This service is available in GPO’s of major cities.
You can track your packages at http://ep.gov.pk/
In terms of delivery times, I think it is a bit slower than other services. Delivery of a package from Rawalpindi to Karachi takes about 3-4 days.
It is a good service by Pakistan Post and should be expanded to all Post Offices of Pakistan. Pakistan Post has a huge infrastructure and should utilize it efficiently to its maximum potential.

NB: Pakistan Post has improved its services. My latest package was delivered in one day from Rawalpindi to Karachi.
