Introducing automated parcel terminals
At the time of order, the recipient specifies the chosen automated parcel terminal as the delivery address for the sender. As soon as the parcel arrives, the recipient is informed by text message or e-mail.
Any neccessary customs duties can be paid directly at the parcel terminal via cashless payment using all major credit cards or the PostFinance Card. As well as collecting parcels, customers will be able to hand in parcels and return mail order deliveries easily and conveniently at the parcel terminals. After an initial start-up phase, the range of services offered by My Post 24 automated parcel terminals will gradually be extended.
Swiss Post is planning to install 40 automated parcel terminals by the end of 2014. It intends to build up a nationwide network over the next few years. The first My Post 24 automated parcel terminals are expected to be up and running in the Zurich and Berne regions in autumn 2013.
When choosing sites for its parcel terminals, Swiss Post gives priority to central locations in cities. The focus is on busy shopping centres, train stations, universities or modern housing estates that are easy for customers to reach. Swiss Post is on the lookout for suitable locations in large and medium-sized cities all over Switzerland.
