"Innovation & Environment are not buzz words in postal sector, they mean a real engagement from the postal operators" said Jack Hamande
Postal operators follow a structured approach when innovating products and systems. With both quality enhancements and cost reductions in mind, they create more consumer-centric service strategy and develop digital and data strategies that sets critical success foundations.
"Postal and digital converge to always offer better services and customer experience"
As consumer and E-merchants expectations continue to change at a rapid pace, the postal sector need to be faster and bolder to innovate. Postal operators can investigate new synergies between existing core operations, services and assets for a new and defendable competitive advantage.
