Swiss Post upgrading parcel centres
| 25 September, 2014
As part of its e-commerce campaign, Swiss Post is upgrading its parcel centres in Härkingen, Frauenfeld and Daillens.
Extending the sorting capacity of its parcel centres is part of a strategy Swiss Post is using to further expand its online retail services and accommodate customers’ needs for more flexibility when receiving parcels.
46 percent of customers want their parcels to be delivered the next day, and the number of returned parcels is steadily increasing.
Up until now, the Härkingen parcel centre has been able to sort a maximum of 20,000 parcels an hour. Thanks to the more efficient system expansion, this figure will rise to over 25,000 parcels an hour on peak days.
