SAFEPOST is an FP7 European project which was active from April 2012 to July 2016 aimed at the “reuse and development of Security Knowledge assets for International Postal supply chains”, as its full title explains. SAFEPOST addressed threats to postal security by designing and experimenting a sensor network detection system including gas, radiation, Raman spectroscopy and image-based sensors. In 2015, while SAFEPOST was running, the US Postal Service and IBM suggested the idea of applying sensors to the postal infrastructure components to bring the acquired data to the next supply chain level and optimize efficiency and costs, leading to an Internet of Postal Things. Merging the SAFEPOST and Internet of Postal Things approaches and applying the result of their merge to supply chains involving not only postal items, but also logistic infrastructures and business processes, paves the way to an Internet of Safe Postal+Things, IoSP+T. The IoSP+T can be further enriched and made smarter, more flexible, and intelligent, by adding agents below, inside, and on top of it. In this paper we provide our vision of the Internet of Safe and Intelligent Postal+Things, IoSIP+T, highlighting challenges and opportunities.
