“We are developing new and modern postal and logistic services to offer our customers a winning service experience. It is equally important for us to ensure that the most suitable digital solutions are used in our operations, including robotics and AI. Our parcel volumes increased remarkably last year, and one of the enablers of this growth was our pioneering in digital solutions. It is wonderful to have Petteri Naulapää’s experience and views to guide our ICT development,” says Posti Group’s President and CEO Heikki Malinen.
“Posti is facing an interesting stage where digitalization requires the creation of new business models. Posti, which is familiar to all Finns, has lots to achieve in this matter. Goods flows, dispatch speed and customer experience define how the e-commerce will develop in the future. In addition to technology, the operation models must also develop continuously. Posti already has extensive expertise in this field. I will focus on the versatility of digital expertise and further accelerate development,” says Naulapää.
