We are the network that unites the country

With its 159-year history, a network of more than 12,700 post offices, a workforce of approximately 125 thousand, total financial assets of €569 billion and 35 million customers. Poste Italiane is aware of its role of responsibility in supporting the country’s development The position of reference operator in the sectors in which it operates allows the Company to play a significant role, making a decisive contribution to the production chain and the national economy: investing and operating together with other operators in its value chain, generating positive results not only for its own business and its shareholders, but also for citizens and companies living and operating in the national territory.
The first half of 2020 was a defining moment in the history of the country and the Company. The benefits of business diversification and operational resilience were confirmed in the emergency of the environment created by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Thanks to its business model, Poste Italiane has been able to guarantee operational continuity, ensuring an uninterrupted service to its stakeholders and showing a strong ability to adapt even in a critical and unfavourable scenario such as the current one. In this context, the extensive collaboration with national institutions continued, mak­ing the Company’s operational know-how available to support the logistical activities of the Civil Protection, which are fundamental in the emergency scenario.
