Post Office launches digital mailbox
Norway Post launches a digital postal system for regular mail in Norway. This spring, it will be possible to receive mails in a digital mailbox in addition to the physical mailbox.
The system has been established with the same security system of online banks. In the spring of 2011, Posten Norge launches a new digital mailbox in addition to the traditional, physical mailbox.
Posten’s digital mailbox system is based on people’s street address in addition to the social security number. Thus, it is easy to find the recipients of the mail even if the street address provided with the digital mailbox is changed.
– In more than 360 years Posten has been a trusted body for the distribution of letters. Now, more and more conversations are done digitally. Posten will be part of this development, “said Dag Mejdell from Posten Norge.
Mejdell underlines that the competence and credibility of Posten Norge, will also be important in this emerging digital world.
