PRESS RELEASE – Thinfilm and Prime Vision to Deliver NFC Smart-Packaging Solutions to International Mail and Parcel Industry
Partners Will Address Security, Communication, and eCommerce Needs using Innovative Printed Electronics Technology
OSLO, Norway, December 21, 2016 – Thin Film Electronics ASA (“Thinfilm”), a global leader in NFC (near field communication) smart-packaging solutions using printed electronics, today announced a partnership with Prime Vision, a leading solutions provider for the postal, parcel, logistics and airport markets.
Prime Competence has a new concept for postal sorting operations that could be a game-changer for posts and express-parcel carriers alike: sorting without a sorter. Now, with a major post (considered to be one of the worlds most automated posts) signed-up to build a proof-of-concept model, it’s time to shed some light on what could be the future for parcel sorting.
The latest issue of Postal Technology Magazine poses this question and it’s one that got us thinking about all the different programs we are working on with posts involving automation, manpower savings and autonomous delivery concepts. Many aspects of this topic relate to how you define a robot and what job are you talking about, for example, parcel lockers are automated devices for delivering parcels to customers – are they therefore robots?
