This paper presents a study on the improvement of postal system in the city of Sibiu where there are a number of three post offices that serve a number of eight counters, to which are added the distribution point and the collection point. Each post office has a well-established work schedule that differs from one office to another. The transport of postal items between the counters / post offices within the municipality of Sibiu and the collection office, must be done on a certain route, in order to respect the work schedule of each office and to take into account a number of restriction factors. In order to streamline the process of collecting and distributing postal items in Sibiu, 6 routes have been proposed and studied for the two shifts of drivers. With the help of the GeoMedia software, various route variants were calculated in terms of distance in kilometers, fuel consummation and time traveled. With the help of a spreadsheet calculation performed in Microsoft Office Excel, it was possible to check and recalculate the proposed routes, by entering the times that drivers spend loading and unloading postal items from each counter. It was thus possible to create a calculation sheet that can improve postal transport in Sibiu, and can increase the quality of services.
