What operations do you carry out at your Arcs sur Argens site ?

Our activity at the Arcs site is related to the collection and delivery of packages for the Var and part of the Alpes-Maritimes departments together with supporting the development of our clients. Receipts begin at 6 am
( around 5 000 packages per day) and dispatch takes place up to 6 pm. Currently 17 people and 44 delivery personnel work at the site.

You have been at the Parc des Bréguières site since it opened, has this been a success? What are the advantages of this site ?

In effect we have been here since the site was established: the location allows us to serve two departments and the close proximity to fast routes was an essential part of our choice of location. In addition, it was important for us to be able to get involved with the development of this region ( job creation, ecological development "think green", etc).
