The technological improvement in portable terminals for rural delivery with card payment and the possibility of operating as an extension of a post office, has enabled this group to increase the capacity to offer products and services to the inhabitants, improving efficiency of the public operator in this less populated environment and the accessibility of the people who reside in it, who now have the same options as those who have access to an urban office.
In this way, rural postmen and purses acquire prominence as facilitators of life in the villages, where they are of vital importance, especially for the smallest and least communicated.
With these new functionalities, Correos continues to work to diversify its activity and bring its services closer to all citizens, making their day-to-day life easier, especially in rural areas, where it also intends to fight against depopulation.
