Bet of 100 million packages, in the field 30 thousand posters

Poste Italiane will use its 30 thousand posters for the e-commerce challenge. Change everything: they will also deliver packages, every day and until evening, even on Saturday and Sunday. And ‘do-it-yourself’ pick-ups from supermarkets and shopping centers, or from the store downstairs, also arrive.

The Poste project, envisaged by the strategic plan ‘Deliver 2022’ by the A.d. Matteo Del Fante, started on the sly. Some details emerged from the presentation of the company’s quarterly accounts: in the first three months of the year, deliveries of parcels by the network of postmen were 50% more than in the same period of 2017. After an explosive growth (4 / 5 million packages delivered in 2015, 15 million in 2016, 35 million in 2017). Now Poste is aiming for 50 million packages delivered in 2018 to grow to 100 million in 2022.
