At the invitation of Serge Allegrezza, Chairman of the Board of Directors, and Claude Strasser, Director General of POST Luxembourg, HRH the Grand Duke went to the "Center de Tri national" in Bettembourg and paid personal tribute to all POST Luxembourg employees for their remarkable commitment during the period of crisis due to COVID-19.
During the site visit, Claude Strasser, accompanied by Hjoerdis Stahl, Director of POST Courrier and Deputy Director General of POST Luxembourg, presented to HRH the Grand Duke and to the Minister responsible for POST Luxembourg, the functioning of the National Sorting Centre which centralises the distribution of nearly 126 million letters and 4 million parcels per year, as well as 65,000 newspapers per day. Also, since the beginning of the confinement period, the volume of packages has more than doubled, to exceed 30,000 packages per day.
Another highlight of the visit was the discovery of the postal stamp created specially on the occasion of the birth of His Royal Highness Prince Charles and whose inscription "Long live the Prince" will be seen on postal mail for several weeks.
Claude Strasser then explained to HRH the Grand Duke the non-negligible role played by all the other trades of POST Luxembourg during this difficult period: Telecommunications, Technologies, etc., without forgetting the logistical aspect and the essential role played in recent months by the Findel logistics centre.
