Solicited for each referendum since 2014, Viapost has once again been entrusted with the preparation of elections for several French departments.
For the regional elections to be held on 20 and 27 June, Viapost, a key operator for the preparation of elections in France for several years, has won the tender for the departments of Maine-et-Loire (49), Manche (50), Mayenne (53), Sarthe (72) and Côtes-d'Armor (22).
In order to meet the requirements of the authorities concerned, and to ensure the quality of the service provided by the teams, 1,500 employees, spread over several Viapost sites, will be responsible for inserting the documents that will then be sent to the 1.926 million voters concerned.
After coordination between the prefectures of these departments, La Poste Group and Viapost, the tasks were divided up. Viapost was entrusted with several operations:
> printing the envelopes with the addresses of each individual,
> the routing of the envelopes to the mailing site,
> the reception and control of the various data: the types of documents (ballot papers and mission statements), the volume received in relation to the number of voters, and the quality of the documents (dry and undamaged documents)
> The preparation and dispatch of the packages containing the ballot papers to the town halls,
> the assembly of the documents, and putting them in envelopes,
> the loading of the containers into trucks ready to be sent to the distribution sites.
These operations take place at several sites :
- at the Viapost platform in Joué-lès-Tours (37) and at an additional temporary site in Tours for inserting documents in envelopes for the Maine-et-Loire and Sarthe departments
- on a postal platform in Roye (80) for the Manche department,
- at an additional temporary site in Rennes for the Côtes-d'Armor department,
- on the Viapost platform in Angers with the partner Mediapost for the assembly of the Mayenne department documents.
"Thanks to the experience and professionalism of our teams, this year again we have gained the trust of the prefects and our partners to carry out the missions entrusted to us.
After winning the operation in all the departments in which we prepare printed advertising material, our teams are ready for the next stage of the operation. We had to mobilise all the skills and resources of our sites specialising in the assembly of advertising prints in order to be efficient and to prepare these elections in record time ! ", says Yannick Cherrière, Director of IP and MD/RNF (Printed Advertisements and Direct Marketing/Reliable National Network) operations.
