La poste is a postal service company in France, operating in Metropolitan France as well as in the five French overseas departments and the overseas collectivity of Saint Pierre and Miquelon. Because of bilateral agreements, La poste also has the responsibility of mail services in Monaco through La Poste Monaco and in Andorra alongside the Spanish company Correos.
The company was created in 1991 following the split of the French PTT, a government department responsible for mail, telegraph and telephone services in France. The PTT, found in 1879, were then divided between La Poste, which became responsible for postal service and France Telecom for the telecommunication services. France Telecom was immediately privatized but La Poste has remained a public company. However, because of EU directives requiring member states to introduce competition in their postal service, the French government might sell its shares and float them on the stock exchange in the near future.
La poste is a parent company of the Groupe La Poste, which also comprises a bank and insurance company, a logistics service company and a mobile network operator. Although its postal activities are declining because of the development of the Internet, they still represented half of the company’s income. Other activities, such as parcel delivery and banking, are on the rise. The two represented respectively a quarter of the company’s income in 2014.
Mail Delivery : La Poste is by far the largest provider for mail delivery in France. It treated 15 billion messages in 2012, of which 97% implies an administration or a firm. Relations to customer only represented 55% of the company’s revenue. International mail delivery accounted for 7% of the 2012 revenue. The same year, Swiss post and La Poste launched a joint company, Asendia, to merge their international mail activities.
