From software solutions controlling fleets of automated sorting robots and business intelligence tools analyzing data to route optimization and automated guided vehicles for last-mile delivery, POST-EXPO 2018 brought together a host of new technologies showcasing how the postal industry is being transformed as a result of advanced robotic and digital solutions.

Speaking at the event, Kenan Bozgeyik, chairman of the UPU Council of Administration and director general of PTT-Turkish Post, said, “POST-EXPO is the most colorful and significant event in the postal sector. During this event we not only have the opportunity to witness the progress of the industry, but we can also see that the future is bright. In the exhibition we can see all the great technologies, and the conference sessions elaborate on critical topics in the sector and look at the future transformation of the postal sector. POST-EXPO is known as the show of strength for the industry and acts as a great platform to showcase innovation and share experiences.”

Product launches
The event, which was held from October 8-11 in Hamburg, Germany, hosted a number of product launches. In the area of robotics, Vanderlande, for example, launched a new collaborative robot, which assists workers in the sorting center with pick-and-pack operations. Meanwhile, Kyburz drew attention from visitors due to its new electric delivery trolley. The trolley works like a moving locker, driving independently to the customer with their parcels and contacting recipients about collection via a smartphone.

Elsewhere, independent software vendor The Information Factory launched a new digital solution called the [i]platform. The solution, which is a plug-and-play approach to software development, is designed to support a broad range of requirements such as digitization, data analytics, automation, workflow and forecasting.
