The new sorting machine, which is 17 metres in length, processes Colissimo and Chronopost at a maximum rate of 3,000 parcels per hour. It has two cameras that read packages “label face down” with the ability to read the name of the recipient as well as all the address details.
Out of a total staff of 178 employees at the Post Office in Monaco, 17 employees are assigned to the processing of parcels. In 2017, Monaco Post processed 615,000 parcels. The figure is constantly growing flow due to the increased number of purchases made on the internet.
