Austrian Post was, perhaps, among the first European postal services. It dates back to the 16 century. The then mail routes connected Vienna with Belgian, French, Spanish, and Portuguese cities. In the 18 century mail delivery became a state monopoly in Austria. Austrians started to deliver mail by trains, invented letterboxes, cash-on-delivery, and even pneumatic mail. In 1918 Austria launched airplane mail delivery. That is believed to be the start of airmail history. The Austrian Post is a member of the Universal Postal Union and cooperates with the EMS, the international express mail service. The Austrian Post delivers mail and parcels to some 200 countries and areas worldwide.
Austrian Post offers banking services as well. In the near future, the postal operator promises to create a network of some 500 locations offering postal and banking facilities. The Western Union transfer service is also available in Austrian post offices.
For companies, the Austrian Post provides the so-called document logistics services that help consolidate all the documents an enterprise needs and works within a single management system. One may also take advantage of digital archives developed and maintained by the Austrian Post. The postal operator also offers warehouses to preserve goods in transit, offers order picking, shipping, and invoicing services. With the help of the Austrian Post, you may launch e-marketing campaigns to advertise and boost the promotion of your brands and products.
