Around 20 million items were processed daily between mid December and the end of the month, on a level with previous years.

“The letter will not disappear, despite text messages, email and electronic chat forums,” Swiss Post said, adding that its sorting centres – the most high-tech in the world - had been operating at near full capacity during the festive season.

Swiss Post says it handled around 2.5 billion letters during the entire year.
