Israel Post and Swiss Post have joined forces in search of start-ups with technological solutions to postal industry challenges.
Middle Eastern media report that entrepreneurs, developers and start-ups are invited by the two postal operators to present solutions that address issues including package returns, post and parcel deliveries, customs and automation. Israel Post is to screen the approaches and then the long list will give presentations to both postal operators next month.
The winners are to run pilots with Israel Post at a new postal innovation centre in Tel Aviv. Swiss Post will choose one innovation and then consider the project of its own accord.
“Our role is to find solutions that will enable customers to enjoy a fast, inexpensive and efficient service,” Danny Goldstein, CEO of Israel Post, was quoted as saying. “The cooperation between Israel Post and Swiss Post is a great opportunity for Israeli startups to get to know postal companies closely and work together with us and with the Swiss Post, which is considered to be one of the most advanced logistics companies in the world.”
