The final shortlist for the Parcel and Postal Technology International Awards 2020 has now been announced.

The awards, which are in their 12th year, attracted an unprecedented number of nominations this year following what has been a challenging first six months of 2020.

Nominations have covered everything from biometric and contactless delivery technologies to new apps, tracking solutions, click and collect offerings, smart postal boxes, and AI and augmented reality tech for sorting centers.

The awards have also attracted a number of nominations this year from companies which have adapted to the Covid-19 pandemic and supported their local communities and charity organizations through innovative solutions.

The full shortlist for the 2020 awards and this year’s judging panel, which is currently scoring the nominations, can be seen below.
