Victor Hugo Avila, commercial innovation manager, Correos, Chile
There’s a lot of interesting things on the stands about a lot of different topics, like IT technology, devices and machines for operations and of course ideas, concepts and developments. It was a very, very good experience.
Evan Christian, director, New Zealand Mail, New Zealand
We are here to look at where the future of mail is going; there’s been a lot of change and it’s been a very interesting couple of days.
We have picked up some really interesting ideas. The guys from Inpost have been very interesting to talk to. A lot of the players are UPU, but we’re not, we’re one of the fewer alternate players here, so we’ve had a lot of chats with Inpost. We’ve got some great ideas to take back with us.
[POST-EXPO] is the biggest, it’s the best, it’s the only one to come to.
Alen Premuzak, executive director, Croatian Post, Croatia
We came to POST-EXPO to see the new trends and for the forums and workshops. Also we want to see some new technology mostly for my business for sorting for parcels. I have seen a lot of ideas that I will try to implement back in Croatia. This is the one place you can find everybody from this business, from this. If you want to know what is happening here, you come to POST-EXPO.
Dennis Weiss, director SI, La Poste, France
It is a good venue to see all our suppliers and have some exchanges with them in one place, in one day. The trends are all the same; there are a lot of things about mobility, about accessibility, that’s the major points. I have 15 companies to meet today and it’s the only place I can meet 15 companies of interest for me in one day.
Michael Amato, VP Engineering Services, United States Postal Service, USA
To keep in touch with all the technologies that the industry is developing for the various posts, as well as the service providers. This trip is focused on a lot of the retail type of products and the integration or the technology behind the physical movement of mail.
[POST-EXPO] is the one area that all the suppliers come together at one point, so you can get the biggest bang from the box from a travel expenditure standpoint.
It’s been a very worthwhile trip. The way the programme is put together, the exhibit hall is done very nicely, very efficient for us.
Jane Arnold, implementation manager, TNT Post UK, UK
To look at new developments for packets and parcel industry, sorting technology and OCR camera technology. Particularly POST-EXPO because we’ve got all our suppliers in one area and we go from stand to stand and find all the new technologies in one day. It’s been worthwhile. We’ve seen a couple of new suppliers, so yes, all interesting and good.
Nor Azizan Tarja, chief operating officer Poslaju, POS Malaysia (Parcel side of Malaysia Post)
This is the biggest expo for the postal industry and we think that we can see a lot of big players and this is where we really meet the original inventor and also those who are responsible for developing new technologies.
We have met a lot of suppliers and it’s definitely something that is very, very beneficial for us.
