This month in Postal and Parcel Technology magazine: How one postal operator has streamlined its handling process to improve customer satisfaction
Our industry is judged by time. To the general public, it really doesn’t matter how efficient our internal systems and procedures are. To be on time, or even a little early, is the expected standard and unfortunately barely noticed. To be late, however, can cause great annoyance and contribute to negative public perception of the postal service.
Fresh from winning two recent industry innovation awards for the Autonomous Sorting solution, Prime Vision’s visionary new system has sent shockwaves through the industry, compelling Postal and Parcel to assess both their current set-ups and future plans. After a successful proof-of-concept demonstration to an invited audience proved the concept feasible, Prime Vision now has a pilot with a second postal partner commencing mid 2018.
As part of the ongoing strategic plan to maintain their focus on solutions within the logistics industry, Prime Vision is pleased to announce the successful management buy-out (MBO) of their Australian subsidiary, Prime Vision Australia. The operation will immediately revert to the previous name of Prime Smart Systems.
On Tuesday 28 November 2017 Prime Vision won the prestigious Logistica Award for their much anticipated Autonomous Sorting solution. The prize is awarded bi-annually for the most innovative solution in the logistics sector.
Autonomous Sorting introduces the concept of self-organizing logistics: Mobile robots that sort parcels or roll containers autonomously.
Fresh from winning not only Sorting Centre Innovation of the Year but also the prestigious Supplier of the Year at the recent 2017 Postal Technology International Awards, Prime Vision have continued the impressive run of recent innovations with the launch of their new Barcode Reader solution.
Prime Vision recently won Sorting Centre Innovation of the Year at the 2017 Parcel and Postal Technology International Awards for their ingenious Sorting Projection solution. Initially conceived as a concept project in partnership with PostNL and Genuin Engineering, Prime Vision have now launched the system to the broader postal and logistics market.
Double win as Prime Vision take home two top awards at 2017 Postal and Parcel Technology International Award
Delft, Netherlands: Yesterday, Prime Vision reconfirmed their position as one of the leading innovators in Postal IT by winning in two categories at the 2017 Postal and Parcel Technology Awards. Won for the second consecutive year, Sorting Centre Innovation of the year, lauds the innovative Projection Sorting system.
We are extremely proud to say that we have been shortlisted for two awards this year: The Sorting Centre Innovation Awards, which is the same prize we won last year and the customers’ choice, the Supplier of the Year Award.
On Tuesday evening at 5 pm, during the award ceremony, the winners will be revealed and we hope to be crowned the Supplier of the Year.
If computers can think what we want them to think, then they must be able to make our lives easier. This was the thesis behind Alan Turing’s paper on computing machinery and intelligence published in 1950. More than 60 years later, artificial intelligence systems based on so-called machine learning techniques are indeed deployed in postal, parcel and logistics operations.
Delft, The Netherlands, 11 July 2017. Today Prime Vision and Unmanned Life presented the results of the proof of concept and performed a live demonstration for PostNL of their Autonomous Sorting solution. With an empty warehouse as a venue, the presentation demonstrated a sorting centre manned only by autonomous robotic UV’s (Unmanned Vehicles).
