Sailpost's work in Italy 

Today, Sailpost is the second largest postal operator in Italy, with a network of over 140 agencies and more than 230 post offices spread throughout the country. It is also currently active in the logistics and e-commerce sectors. 

Thanks to the diversification that Sailpost has achieved over the years, it now has a postal and courier services distribution network that provides nationwide coverage, satisfying the needs of users, professionals, and businesses in general. 

Sailpost's planned growth with Azimut Direct

According to the Group's spokespersons, Azimut Direct represents a new way of providing capital to Italian companies, through what is known as a "short chain" approach. Today, the Group is based on a mixed model with a strong technological focus on the analytical side, without neglecting the importance of the relationship with the companies. 

This allows for ongoing dialogue with companies and close coordination with the Group's network of financial advisors to achieve better results. 

The loan obtained by Sailpost has a seven-year term and seeks to support both the investment plan and the liquidity component. According to the company, the resources obtained will be used to optimize the production chain, particularly by purchasing two sorting machines. But, in addition, the company will seek to improve purchasing conditions in the common operations. 

According to its representatives, the goal now is to increase turnover by more than 50%, mainly thanks to assets such as the market for court documents, penalty notices, and new projects.
