Israel, Swiss postal services team up to scout for startups

Israel Post and Swiss Post are set to work together to find startup companies offering technological solutions to postal industry challenges.

According to a report published by the Jewish News Syndicate, entrepreneurs, developers and startups are being invited to present solutions that address issues such as package returns, post and parcel deliveries, unstaffed stores, customs and automation. The startups will go through an initial screening and selection process by Israel Post, and then give presentations to both postal companies in September.

The selected companies will carry out pilot projects with Israel Post and participate in the new Israel Post innovation centre currently being built in Tel Aviv. According to the JNS report, the project chosen by the Swiss Post will be invited to a workshop in Switzerland, where decisions about whether to proceed with funded projects will be made.

“Our role is to find solutions that will enable customers to enjoy a fast, inexpensive and efficient service,” Danny Goldstein, CEO of Israel Post, was quoted as saying. “The cooperation between Israel Post and Swiss Post is a great opportunity for Israeli startups to get to know postal companies closely and work together with us and with the Swiss Post, which is considered to be one of the most advanced logistics companies in the world.”
