Postal service details for Abruzzo, Italy
|Email item||Print item||
Further to the information published in relation to the earthquake in Abruzzo, Italy’s designated postal operator, Poste Italiane SpA, would like to inform the public that inward and outward international postal operations (letter post, parcels and EMS items) have been gradually restored in the area affected by the earthquake in central Italy.
Postal service is being provided by 11 mobile post offices installed on trucks, and Poste Italiane is working with the Civil Defence officials to reopen the local post offices considered safe in L’Aquila and in other villages with postcodes 67000-67999.
Postal services have been delayed because the postal centre serving L’Aquila is still considered unsafe and only part of the road system is practicable, making it impossible to ensure compliance with international quality standards for the time being.
The mobile post office in Centicollela is responsible for the general delivery (“poste restante”) of all parcels in the areas affected by the earthquake. To simplify the delivery of these items to their addressees, senders are asked to indicate the address as follows:
Name and family name of addressee
Mobile phone number of addressee
Presso Fermo Deposito Ufficio Postale Mobile
Cap 67100 L’Aquila
Please ensure that the addressee’s mobile phone number is clearly indicated on the item. This will facilitate and shorten the time needed for delivery.
