Before the advent of telecommunication & e-mail, for centuries, global communication was through the written posts. Globally, the postal industry catered to the distribution of written letters through a multi-modal network, to the remotest part of the land. The process being manual, was slow & inefficient.
Today, in the digitalized world, the written & physical mode of communication is as good as extinct due to the availability of technologically advanced & real-time communication through e-mail & smartphone connectivity using social media apps/platforms.
Over the last decade, the postal industry has witnessed transformation & diversification owing to the emergence of digitalization and e-commerce. The revenue through postal mails has declined drastically, forcing the postal industry to gradually transition to digitalization & e-commerce.
Many continue their operations using legacy systems built on disparate & inefficient technologies. This is more obvious in the transportation department that supports the e-commerce arm of the postal industry – catering to the movement of goods, gifts, mails, etc. In the e-commerce delivery segment, the private players are rapidly evolving and offer fierce competition to the postal industry, driving them to continuously innovate and develop new offerings.
