The postal sector is an important part of the supply chain handling over 40 million international parcels a year. There has been recognition, both by regulators and by the industry, of the importance of security in this context.
This workshop is proposed by the SAFEPOST consortium. The SAFEPOST consortium was created within the framework of the FP7 programme. It aims at raising the current level of postal security by integrating innovative screening solutions, suitable for uninterrupted flow of parcels and letters, with operational postal processes and the criminal and customs intelligence work in a European wide cooperative distributed model.
