Background
E-BOX has since inception in 2000 focused on research and development of innovative postal
services
In 2005, E-BOX invents “L’Agence Postale Rapide e-box™”, presented at Post expo 2005
conference in Paris

E-BOX has also conceived the CitEbox logistic
system™, which optimizes routing from a suburban
depot to all its related urban postal facilities
The urban depot will support a cluster of
conveniently located E-BOX automated postal
facilities remotely piloted through secured VPN,
high-speed line and Internet connection from a
central database
When parcels are put in each shared automated
box by a CitEbox delivery man their recipients
receive a text message and an email telling them
that they have mail or parcel to be collected at their
24/7 convenience.

    E-BOX Initiative (1) The C2C box concept
    How does it work? Each E-Box CitEbox regional organisation collects
    previously dropped parcels while it delivers at the same local Automated
    Postal Facility. Senders pay their side of intra-regional shipping within their
    1.5 € fee for this Parcel Shipping service.

    Once arrived at the CitEbox depot these regional packets are sorted
    together with those consolidated for interurban carriers but they will take the
    next appropriate CitEbox regional shuttle instead of getting out of the loop.
    At J+2 and from each destination, i.e. their 24/7 Automated Postal Facility,
    registered addressees pay their own 1.5 € delivery fee, provided retrieval is
    performed within next 24h.

    Therefore each side of the ‘C2C-Box’ community pays its share of E-
    BOX regional transport but also feels the value of its intermediation in
    the sharing of dues, duties and responsibilities.

   The Killer application


   E-BOX 24/7 automated postal facilities will deploy a network of
   ELP (Environmental Logistic Points) allowing a significant part
   (20%) of urban transport freight to shift from a day delivery to a
   night delivery .
   This radical change will contribute to a significant reduction of
   congestion and CO2 gas emission in our cities.
