A new online delivery website which ships parcels to any place in Iran has been launched, building on the trend of the webinization of the local economy.  Marsooleh, (parcel in Persian), has begun offering online delivery services via its website panel in the Persian language.  Customers can log on to, by registering an account and access one of the several different delivery methods. The company states it is working with 10 transportation firms to begin with, but only lists a few firms at the bottom of the website Like international companies of this ilk, users can select their chosen package size and then pick from a range of different companies depending on the price.  Both the customer and recipient can track the status of a package via text message. The website does not state whether it intends to compete in the international parcel market in the near future.  It also does not offer the services on mobile-based applications for the moment. Iran’s parcel delivery service companies compete with international companies like DHL and Aramex (that are among the top global couriers) in local delivery services.
