With our 160-year history, 12,800 post offices, approximately 121,000 employees, total financial assets of €586 billion and 35 million customers, the Group occupies a unique position in the country in terms of size, recognisability, reach and customer loyalty, making a major contribution to Italy’s economic, social and productive fabric.

Poste Italiane constitutes the largest service distribution network in Italy, covering activities that range from logistics, letter and parcel delivery and financial and insurance services to payment systems and telecommunications.

In 2021, the Poste Italiane Group generated impacts on the country in terms of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) totalling €12.5 billion, as well as supporting around a total 183 thousand jobs and contributing to Public Administration revenues with around €2 billion in terms of tax revenue.
In addition, it is possible to estimate that Poste Italiane has directly and indirectly contributed to the distribution of income to workers for a total of € 7.3 billion.
The creation of value by Poste Italiane is based on the contribution that the Group’s individuals make through their work and daily commitment. In 2021, each individual at Poste Italiane contributed to the creation of economic impacts for the territory equal to € 105 thousand of GDP, € 62 thousand of income for households, € 17 thousand of tax contributions and the employment of 1.5 people.

2021 was an important year for Poste Italiane, with the company establishing itself as the leading player in Italy’s path towards digitalisation.
In particular, the company's business model rapidly adapted to the emergency situation caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, guaranteeing an uninterrupted service to its stakeholders and demonstrating a strong capacity to adapt even in critical and challenging situations such as those of the last two years.
Poste Italiane strengthened its collaboration with national authorities, taking an active role in the vaccination campaign promoted to contain the pandemic in Italy.
Specifically, the company applied its know-how to support logistical activities and made its various channels available to facilitate the vaccination campaign. 

Poste Italiane’s business model is characterised by the combination of strategy, value creation and the generation of financial and non-financial capital, as exemplified in the figure below.
