The CALorimetric Electron Telescope (CALET), operating onboard the International Space Station (ISS) since October 2015, is an experiment dedicated to high-energy astroparticle physics. The primary scientific goal of the CALET mission is to perform a high-precision measurement of the inclusive spectrum of cosmic electrons and positrons (all-electron) up to the multi-TeV region, where the shape of the spectrum can indicate the presence of nearby cosmic-ray sources or dark matter signatures. In this contribution, the analysis procedure that led to a precise measurement of the all-electron flux up to several TeV with the full statistics collected by the CALET experiment is presented and results are briefly discussed.
