In Pursuit of Excellence in Mail & Express
The Awards were conceived through discussions at the internationally recognised World Mail & Express conferences – the unique forum for industry leaders and key decision makers to discuss strategy.
When the World Mail Awards were first launched, mail was very much a dominant communications media and, for posts at least, parcels was of secondary importance. Nearly twenty years on the dominant media is digital, as we are all aware. That said, physical mail remains hugely significant, to the national postal operators in particular, and it will continue to feature in award categories and in the winners. However, the future is seen as e-commerce parcels. This has led to a huge shift of emphasis for posts, has provided opportunities for existing and new parcels operators, and has challenged the model of the express integrators. It is a different world where technology and innovation have become a huge part of the industry’s growth.
In 2016, Triangle re-branded the World Mail Awards to reflect these huge changes in our industry and became The World Post & Parcel Awards. There were also two amended categories – Cross Border Growth and Delivery on Demand – to further support these changes.
The World Post & Parcel Awards is still the global platform to recognise and promote mail and express excellence. Mail and express operators from all over the world compete to win these highly coveted awards, covering the key areas of mail and express operations.
With the exception of the Industry Leadership Award, application, or nomination, for an Award is open to any mail and express operator or service provider worldwide, whether public or private, small or large. All applications are reviewed by a prestigious panel of judges and, from a shortlist of entries, a winner in each category is finally declared.
Winners are announced at a presentation ceremony and Gala Dinner held in conjunction with the annual World Mail & Express Europe conference and exhibition where the Awards are presented by sponsoring organisations.
