Latvijas Pasts is a public company fully controlled by the Latvian government and is responsible for the control and proper functioning of most of the country's postal services. Its headquarters are located in the city of Riga, which was created on January 2, 1992, after the country gained its independence.
Among a wide variety of postal services, Latvijas Pasts tracking service is highly respected and admired by other postal companies in the region. Due to the good quality of its virtual tracking system, Latvijas Pasts has decided to renew and improve most of its services in recent years.
However, Latvia's postal history dates back to many years before its independence. In fact, before independence, postal services were managed and operated by private companies that later became part of the public administration of the Latvian government. During its establishment, Latvijas Pasts was registered as a non-profit joint-stock company, and later on, it aimed to dominate a large part of Latvia's postal market.
The first postal services to arrive in the country were from the 13th century, specifically in 1580, when the country was an integrated part of a vast territory that was controlled by the former Russian Czar's empire. Over time, the postal services underwent different processes of renewal and modernization. By 1965, when the former Soviet Union was at its height, one of the most important and modern post offices in the region was built in Riga. With the arrival of independence in 1992, the post office, and all postal services went through a process of complete renovation. The old post office in Riga is rebuilt as the headquarters of Latvijas Pasts.
In 2014, Latvijas Pasts was part of one of the most important political and economic processes in the country. By that year, the Latvian government says it will change its official currency, the lats, to the official currency of the European Union, the euro. For this transition, Latvijas Pasts decided to provide its banking and money transfer services so that users could make the transition correctly. During more than 3 months, more than 300 post offices of the company were used for this process.
After Latvia entered the European Union, Latvijas Pasts began to experience significant changes that have benefited the company economically. In fact, with the integration of the Euro as a local currency, Latvijas Pasts has become an exemplary and respected company throughout the region, due to the excellent quality of its services.
