Globe Postal Service (GPS), a private postal operator which products are available in Italy in more than 2000 points of sale, is now also in France (French Riviera) and Corsica.
Founded in 2013 by Cristiana Di Grazia and Stefano Paniconi, GPS has been the first private postal operator to introduce a new postal sticker in Italy, an alternative choice to the
traditional stamp issued by Poste Italiane, initially valid only for sending tourist postcards in Italy and all over the world.
This process has been made innovative by a qr-code printed on each sticker, which allows the sender to trace the postcard and attach a video that can only be viewed by the addressee. As incentive to sponsorship the tourism in Italy, the GPS stickers are dedicated to the Italian cities where they are sold, through the representation of the most traditional images of the territory. Furthermore, inside of each point of sale, the company has always set a yellow mail box that, still today, identifies the GPS brand!
In six years of activity the company set over 2.000 mail boxes in Italy, making GPS the most diffused private network of mail boxes, the only alternative to the traditional Italian postal service.
And now the GPS network also collect traditional and registered postal mail!
Confirmed the brand in Italy, GPS has exported its postal service in France, another Nations with high rate of tourism.
An important strategic planning work, and a productive relationship with the French Authorities (Arcep) and some French commercial partners (also La Poste), gave to GPS and to the Italian postal market an incredible success: Globe Postal Service became one of the 49 authorized Postal Companies from Arcep to operate in French postal market but, most of all, is the first and only Italian private company with a French postal license. GPS will export its business model to France with just one difference: the yellow mail boxes becomes orange only in the French market!
Right now GPS is looking to expansion its services to other European Countries, activity that will be conducted also in partnership with International Careers.
