Postal operators: The need for transformation and corresponding strategic moves
From the first horse-drawn couriers to drone delivery via creating the “penny black” stamp, the automation of sorting, and so on, postal operators (“posts”) have always adapted. Moreover, given their public service spirit, they have shown great resilience to unforeseen obstacles. This explains their longevity. But digitalization of the economy is changing the context of posts — in a positive way as e-commerce increases but negatively as mail and retail networks use declines.
Being concerned is not enough
