Swiss Post is a typical European postal service whose long history successfully intermingles with present-day technologies. The company is based in Bern, the city where the country’s first permanent official postal connections were formed in the 17 century. Nowadays the company offers a wide range of postal services and delivers parcels and messages by all transport means, from cycles to drones.
Swiss Post focuses on delivering letters, hybrid mail (letters sent as emails, then printed and distributed as traditional ones), parcels, and documents within Switzerland and abroad. It offers postal solutions to private and commercial clients, with traditional and courier delivery options. Urgent mail, parcels, and bulky goods can be delivered the same day or overnight. The faster the delivery is, the more it costs. However, there are cost-effective solutions, like that for bulk mailing, or even postage-free options. Private letters and small parcels (up to 5 kg) to and from military personnel, and items for the blind are transported postage-free, but only within the country.
Swiss Post offers convenient solutions for those changing the place of living. It registers the change of address and, if a client wishes, redirects all his mail to his new home. This service will be active for a year since a person moved house. The letters and parcels can also be sent to a client’s temporary address. There are also alternative solutions for missed postal items: from extending the collection period to allowing the mail to be delivered to someone else. In such a case a special authorisation for the third party will be needed.
Apart from postal services, Swiss Post offers solutions in warehousing, inventory management, and order processing. You may take advantage of its logistics centers located next to important road networks. They offer plenty of specially equipped storage space. Swiss Post can also help you optimize the logistics procedures. The company offers expert assistance in such fields as cross docking, collecting and delivery of goods, reverse logistics and packaging.
