Swiss Post exceeds post and parcel delivery targets

Swiss Post exceed delivery targets and increased its parcel volumes.

Swiss Post has reported that it once again exceeded its letter mail delivery targets in 2017, with almost 98% of A Mail letters and 99% of B Mail letters arriving on time.

The Ordinance on the Postal Services Act stipulates that Swiss Post must deliver 97% of letters on schedule.

On the parcel front, 96% of PostPac Priority consignments were delivered punctually and, for PostPac Economy consignments, the figure was just under 98% (compared to a target of 95%). The company also saw its volumes increase by 6% to 130m parcels.

In a statement issued on Friday (2 March), Swiss Post added that – in order to deal with the continuing growth in volumes – it  is constructing three new regional parcel centers in Cadenazzo (Canton of Ticino), Untervaz (Canton of Graubünden) and Vétroz (Canton of Valais) which are due for completion by 2020.

Swiss Post processed more than 2bn addressed letters in 2017, but this was 4.2% lower than in 2016. “The decline in volumes compared to the previous year (-3.8 percent) and the long-term average (1-2 percent) was thus once again reinforced,” added Swiss Post.
