Singpost to Add 50,000 NFC Tags to Delivery and Collection Points for Greater Operational Efficiency

Singpost to Add 50,000 NFC Tags to Delivery and Collection Points-for-Greater Operational Efficiency


Singapore's postal service provider SingPost is rolling out 50,000 NFC tags to delivery and collection points across the island and is to equip 1,000 postmen with NFC smartphones to "raise postal service quality and improve operational efficiency".


Amalgamating NFC, RFID, digital imaging and electronic notifications, SmartPost will equip SingPost's postal staff with new skills and tools to elevate their operational capability and efficiency across the entire postal operation — from collection to sorting, last-mile delivery, and quality assurance,” SingPost says.


The first phase will focus on the delivery of registered mail, SmartPac, and other trackable postal items. Postmen will be issued smartphones loaded with a customized postal delivery app. Used in conjunction with NFC and serialized code scanning, the app will help postmen keep track of deliveries made and generate real-time prompts of standard operating procedures.


It will also provide operational information on the go about SingPost's various mail products and services. Customers can get delivery status updates by SMS or email and receive notifications of where they may collect items whose delivery they have missed. They may also be able to collect the item directly at the post office, using an electronic notice on their mobile device instead of a physical delivery note.”


Apart from equipping SingPost's over 1,000 postmen with smartphones, NFC tags such as NFC paper tags will be installed on more than 50,000 delivery and collection points across the island, which would make SingPost one of the first postal organizations in the world to do so, "the company adds." Data of crucial operational activities ranging from posting box collection to letterbox delivery can be obtained, enabling extensive and dynamic analytics for future customer service enhancements and operational work process improvements.     


Application, system and infrastructure development is underway in preparation for the rollout that will commence later this year and is targeted to be completed by March 2019.


"SmartPost is one of many innovations SingPost is using to exploit and leverage the proliferation of digital technology, this time to address traditional postal challenges and take a disruptive step forward to meet evolving expectations for faster and more flexible deliveries, especially for e-commerce," says Paul Coutts, SingPost's CEO.


SmartPost has been designed to help our postal team work better and smarter, enhancing their capabilities and efficiency for the digital age.
