Prime Competence Consortium started pilot deployment of the world’s first autonomous drone-based sorting centre for a major European post
ISTANBUL, Turkey (September 19, 2016) – Prime Competence and Unmanned Life announced, at the Postal Innovation Platform Conference – the forum for key players in postal innovation – that they have started the pilot deployment of the world’s first autonomous drone-based sorting centre for a major European post.
This year was the first time that the global show of Post-Expo, the world’s leading international postal and parcel industry exhibition and conference, took place in Asia-Pacific. The Prime Competence team didn’t want to miss this opportunity!
The Asia-Pacific region remains one of the world’s most dynamic (and interesting) postal and logistics markets both in terms of service development and innovation.
Prime Competence has developed a Reference Framework for posts new to the rapidly emerging Internet of Postal Things (IoPT). The IoPT is a network of physical objects — machines, equipment, vehicles and other items — embedded with electronics, software, sensors and connectivity that enables these objects to collect and exchange data to the advantage of the user.
Prime Competence is an independent, knowledgeable and skilled consultancy and concept development agency. Our team has extensive experience in researching and modeling sophisticated processes in order to facilitate further insights, automation or optimization.
We are also very active in the Innovation & Business Development field, helping postal operators with new initiatives, adding new business models and value to current postal operations, plus support and management of new development projects.
Prime Competence is currently running innovation workshops with several leading posts on a wide range of technology subjects, designed to raise awareness of the huge business potential that is open to the industry.
Emerging and trending topics include IoPT (Internet of Postal Things), smarter collection, delivery opportunities, live asset tracking nationwide and developing new revenue streams.
