SINGAPORE — Postmen in Singapore will get a new look on Friday (9 October), as SingPost will be launching new uniforms for its 1,000-odd staff members in conjunction with World Post Day.

The postal service provider said in a media release on Thursday that the new uniforms will feature its corporate colours – white, red and blue – in distinct blocks.

Over 10 different garments – ranging from shirts, outerwear, aprons to headgear – were designed to form six different uniform sets for various job roles, including postmen, Inspector of Post, parcel ambassadors and mail processing staff.

The uniform is designed to be suitable for delivery work in Singapore’s humid climate, with ventilation flaps and inner mesh on the back to ensure the postman remains cool and well-ventilated. It also features prominent reflective strips for the safety of the postman on the road.

Each postman is also issued with a windbreaker, as well as a wet-weather suit comprising a heavy-duty weather-proof jacket and pants.

This is the first full redesign of the entire suite of postal uniforms since 2011, and it includes the uniforms of the parcel ambassadors of SingPost’s courier arm, Speedpost.

It is also the final phase in a year-long refresh of SingPost’s frontline image, with the company first unveiling new uniform for its frontline service staff in December 2019.
