Stamp Free Limited is excited to announce we received the World Post & Parcel Innovation and Technology award at the World Mail & Express Europe, Middle East and Africa (WMX EMEA) conference last week in Dubai.
The WMX EMEA conference brings together C-Level and senior executives from across the globe to discuss and learn about the latest developments in each region. The World Post & Parcel Awards is regarded as the “Oscars” of the mail and express industry, with past winners including Metapack, Australia Post and Doddle.
As part of its awards submission, Stamp Free highlighted the Stamp Free Digital Postage Solution™, which is looking to transform the post and parcel industry by enabling customers to send parcels, letters and returns just by using their phones. No stamps. No printed off postage. No parcel label. Small businesses, independent postal services, and consumers will benefit from the convenient solution to mailings and returns; no more standing in queues on lunch breaks, rushing to buy stamps, struggling with a broken printer or losing returns in the mail.
The Innovation and Technology awards category honours and recognises organisations introducing a significant innovation to the sector that demonstrates quantifiable benefits to its customers.
Stamp Free were finalists in the Innovation and Technology category alongside Kardinal for their Logistics Intelligence Platform and Swiss Post for their Exoskeletons Help Employees technologies. Other winners across all categories include Asia Pacific Post, Correios and Jersey Post.
Hugh Craigie Halkett, Managing Director of Stamp Free, said: As a technology start-up breaking into this sector, we are honoured to receive this award alongside winners from national postal companies. Our achievements to date are a testament to our team and investors. This award is further validation from the industry of our Digital Postage Solution™.
Alan Barrie, Stamp Free Non-Executive Chair, formerly of Royal Mail and International Post Corporation, said: Stamp Free Limited is an essential part of the world’s growing need for smarter shipping and returns, and we are grateful for this recognition. I believe in applying technology to business situations to apply new services, cut costs, drive efficiencies, create better working methods and improve real-time data. The quality of data is just as important as the quality of service and goods that a postal or carrier offers. It is essential in providing us with the ability to predict what is likely to happen, and it is ultimately better for the customer.
