Italy - "Nuova Rete" Project

Elsag Datamat has been selected by Poste Italiane as main supplier for the renewal of the Italian Postal Network.
The overall project is divided into several steps:
  • rationalization of postal network logistics;
  • development of both postal network mechanisation and system integration in postal centers;
  • integration between postal processes and processing steps;
  • development of new added value services.
Elsag Datamat acts as a partner to Poste Italiane in the Italian Postal Network modernization project, supplying:
  • letter and flat sorting systems;
  • integration systems (mail buffers);
  • postal plant system integration (plant engineering, layout, flow and process optimisation, etc.);
  • production management systems;
  • ancillary services (training, maintenance, etc.).
Poste Italiane has begun modernising its mail logistics network. After the successful completion of a two-year test period, during which Elsag Datamat played a fundamental role as supplier of machinery and services for the most important postal centers in Italy (Milan P.B. and Rome F.), the new infrastructure entered the definitive roll-out phase across the entire country.
The project's goals, in addition to improving service performance, are to reduce production costs and increase the reliability of the logistics chain, without affecting service levels.
The reorganisation reduces the number of sorting centers from the current 108 to 24, increasing the level of production automation from 35-40% to 85% at the same time.

Postal center automation products supplied by Elsag Datamat are as follows:

Machines
LSM (Letter Sorting Machines), with high capacity output stackers and automatically swept bins;
CFSM (Flat Sorting Machines).

System Integration Equipment & Software
STAR (System for Transport, Accumulation and Routing) to provide physical integration between input and output letter sorters (see IBS);
SISC (Integrated Coding Services System) to provide coding and value added services for all postal center installations;

The system integrates:
  • OCR – Automatic Address Recognition System;
  • VCS – VideoCoding System;
  • value added services management;
  • delivery management;
  • logistics management.
Plant Engineering and related equipment
SAC (Mail Automation System) for production monitoring and management, based on commercial platform.
