SAFEPOST aims to raise the current level of postal security by integrating innovative screening solutions suitable for uninterrupted flow of the enormous volumes of parcels and letters with operational postal processes and the criminal and customs intelligence work in a European wide cooperative distributed model.
Starting from the perspective of the partner postal operations, the project will first identify the main security threats and threat actors and the main security gaps in postal operations. Secondly, it will describe security measures and process improvements to maintain or augment the efficient and secure operation of postal services to address the identified threats.
After making an inventory of security gaps these will be developed into generic postal security models which will be integrated into a Postal Security Target Operating Model, which will enable postal operators, customs and other relevant actors to understand how to securely exchange information related not only to security but also to the optimisation of postal flows. To support the Postal Security Target Operating Model, a Postal Security Platform will be developed that will help extending the current MEDICI effort, and will exploit developments made in FP7 projects on e-Freight and secure supply chains. SAFEPOST will extend the concept of its Postal Security Target Operating Model to propose a ‘Common Postal Security Space’ with a view to create in the future a European/World Postal Security standard security information sharing system.
