Swiss Post delivered 18m parcels in pre-Christmas December
Swiss Post has reported that it processed more than 18m parcels between 1 and 23 December.
The postal operator also reported that, on peak days in December, over one million parcels a day passed through the systems at the sorting centers in Frauenfeld, Härkingen and Daillens. On 19 December,the three centres processed more than 1.3m parcels, which was a new record for the company.
Swiss Post said that these increased volumes were made possible by the upgrades it has made to its parcel centres, with new sorting systems that offer 25% more capacity.
The company added: “The construction of three additional regional parcel centers in Cadenazzo (TI), Untervaz (GR) and Vétroz (VS) has already been planned. This will enable punctual processing of parcel volumes, which are growing each year – thanks in particular to mail order business.”
