Swiss Post is closing around 170 branches that it operates itself. In the future, there will therefore only be 600 post offices and 2,000 sites served, the yellow giant announced in a press release on Wednesday.

Usual counter operations, such as payments, have once again recorded a clear decline over the last four years, notes La Poste. To cope with this development, La Poste is reducing its network of subsidiaries.

There will be no layoffs, the company told the Keystone-ATS news agency. Because despite the reduction in positions linked to the closure of subsidiaries, La Poste expects an increase in staffing needs in the short and medium term. It also counts on natural fluctuations and retirements. However, some employees will have to change positions.

La Poste wants to transform its 600 remaining subsidiaries into service centers as part of partnerships concluded with various banks, health funds, insurance companies and authorities.
