Bad news for Postal employees

customers of the Swiss Post get today may four times per day visit. If the early deliverer of the newspaper subscribers brings to your morning reading is usually still in the middle of the night. A little later the Pöstlerin distributed on your Elektrotöff the letter post and is usually smaller packages. Then the deliverer of the company Direct Mail follow. Distribute, for example, advertising leaflets. Especially in the urban space of the package, postman will pass at some point and brings in the major consignments. What the four have in common: All of the work, either through a subsidiary or directly, for the Post.

This Overlaps with the final delivery on the so-called "last mile" of the Post now check. To do this, has awarded a contract to the consulting firm McKinsey. In the context of the now ongoing investigation of the "postal processing processes on the efficiency and synergy potential would be reviewed," confirms a post spokesman. This Post wants to derive short-, medium-and long-term "recommendations for action". Specifically, the entire distribution of letter and parcel post.

The spokesman says, is that it is at this early stage of the Review would be irresponsible to make statements organizational changes at the last mile. As the example in the Distribution shows, there are certainly potential synergies for participating postal divisions and subsidiaries.

Should be adapted processes, and perhaps simplified, it is clear that the staff will otherwise be used – or even jobs will be deleted. In the Post, it means a reduction in possible points: "The Assessment is about how the Post can be with the existing infrastructure and the current resources and future demands on you, and not to removal."

The main reason why the Post makes the distribution to look at is the change in the parcel and letter volumes. While letter volumes are going back continuously, increasing the number of packages. In the past year, the Post-processed 138 million Parcels. This corresponds to an increase of almost 8 percent compared to 2017. This growth has already responded to this with the construction of regional, smaller package centers, for example, in Cadenazzo, TI,. Because the three national package distribution centers, more soon, in order to process the package quantities.

in contrast, the mail distribution centres are being utilised less and less. Therefore, could there be a closer cooperation between the two postal divisions, postmail and postlogistics, so letter - post and parcel-post sense. The large distribution centres of the two divisions are geographically close to each other. Just in the middle of the country and in the West of Switzerland, just a few metres away. A repurposing of Parts of these large centres for the needs of the package division would be so at least from a geographical point of view quite possible and logical.

The Post stresses that you stand still at the beginning of the Review. How long will it take before concrete results are available, it is not possible to estimate at present, says the spokesman. How much money the Post office makes the screening cost, does not want to answer to the state of the group.

the First sounds from the new post-chief

With the Review post boss Roberto Cirillo strikes first stakes. A long time we heard little from the New at the top of the Post, in April in the office. He was followed by Susanne Ruoff, who stepped on the train of the post-car affair back. (Read here about the recently published report of the States-the superintendence in respect of the post-car affair.) In the few public appearances was only clear that he wants to place the Post in some cases. So Cyril pleaded for new sources of income, which should tap into the Post.

in addition, he wants to bring, but apparently the traditional business of the Post forward. The Review demonstrates assumes that McKinsey now. And where is McKinsey comes in, it is all about one thing: efficiency. Often at the expense of jobs. The Post is your well 39'000 employees, is the third largest employer in Switzerland.

piquant Detail: Roberto Cirillo has been with McKinsey in size. He worked from 1998 to 2007, the consultant company. The criticism after his appointment to the post the chief went in two directions: on the one Hand, it was criticized that he was in Switzerland, unknown, not really connected with the policy seems to be. A crosslinking, which can be for the Post of chief of the Post of advantage. On the other hand, but also his past at McKinsey. The trade Union newspaper "Work" some called him a "McKinsey-Boy", and stressed that removal to make the connection of the adviser.
