The initiative is part of the INDIMO (Inclusive Digital Mobility Solutions) European project that proposes users innovative and inclusive solutions, including a technological response to meet the key logistics challenges in environmental, organizational and social cohesive terms.
Punto Poste Da Te, in line with the INDIMO aims, is mainly offered to subject to social exclusion citizens, such as the elderly, foreigners and people with few digital skills.

Satisfaction was expressed by the mayor Barbara Panzacchi: "I really thank Poste Italiane in the person of Dr. Lasco as well as the Fondazione Istituto Trasporti e Logistica, and in particular Eleonora Tu, for this important service of great utility in favor of the territory and citizenship which will especially support the most fragile sections of the population; the Municipality of Monghidoro, precisely for these reasons, has joined with pleasure in this experimental project that goes in the direction of expanding more and more proximity and digitization services in mountain areas of the metropolitan area ".

In this first phase of experimentation, over 30 "Punto Poste Da Te" lockers have already been installed on the national territory, allowing operations to be carried out in total autonomy and speed, also facilitating compliance with the interpersonal distancing rules in force during the period of sanitary emergency.

The new locker, simple and secure, won the innovation award "Elected product of the year 2020" based exclusively on the consumers vote and represents a further step forward in the digitization process since it can be managed completely through the Ufficio Postale APP.
In fact, once received the notification that warns of the shipment arrival, just go to the “Punto Poste Da Te” and bring the QR Code close to the locker optical reader. The cell assigned to the shipment will open automatically.
