Philatelic Campaign of the Year

Winner: Ukrposhta for their Ukrainian Postage Stamps

On March 1, four days after the beginning of Russia’s full-scale invasion, instead of celebrating the 30th anniversary of Ukrainian modern postage stamps, Ukrposhta announced a competition for the sketch of the stamp “Russian warship, go …!”, illustrating the phrase symbolizing Ukraine’s fighting against the invaders. On March 8, the voting started in social media, in which more than 7 thousand people participated. After 43 days, on April 12, Ukrposhta issued the postage stamp with the circulation of 1,000,000 (8 times higher than the average circulation of art stamps in the past 25 years). Two days later, the Armed Forces of Ukraine destroyed the russian cruiser Moskva featured in the stamp. The next day, the demand for the stamp sky-rocketed, and Ukrposhta had to introduce restrictions of the number of stamps sold per person. Ukrposhta launched sales on its upgraded online store and domestic marketplaces and opened its official stores on Amazon and eBay. The “Russian warship, go…!” stamp became the most expensive and demanded modern postage stamp, starting a new stage of Ukrainian philately – the stage of prosperity.

Postal Evolution

Winner: Correos for their Correos Frio project

Correos has created a transport solution with controlled temperature called Correos Frio project. The innovative solution uses refrigerated vehicles and isothermal packaging that allows to keep the cold chain of refrigerated shipments for up to 120 hours. Through IOT technology, the company is able to get real-time information on the temperature and humidity of the contents of these shipments. This allows the operator to run an alert system that keeps professionals informed of any incident during transport, allowing special protocols to be activated and minimizing risks in the distribution and storage of medicines and other controlled temperature products.

Postal Operator of the Year

Winner: Ukrposhta

In 2022, Ukrposhta showed how a postal operator can work under the conditions of war, with continuous shelling and power cuts, to develop exports when the airspace is closed in order to support Ukrainian entrepreneurs (Ukrposhta resumed export transportation a week after the start of the full-scale invasion), to implement governmental social projects of business relocation, delivery of pensions and financial aid from international organizations, delivery of humanitarian aid from abroad. It is worth noting that despite significant losses (due to the war, Ukrposhta has lost $55 million in assets), the company has not generated operating losses and Ukrposhta only suspended operations for one day on February 24.

Startup of the Year

Winner: Digicust GmbH

Digicust has created a set of virtual customs robots integrated into an AI-based customs software called Digital Customs. These robots learn from customs specialists and officers to perform customs clearance. The expansion of ISC2 makes the assistive technology of customs fulfillment vitally important. With their innovation, this company is sustainably digitalizing the customs industry around the world and improving the current supply chain in speed, efficiency, and safety.

Industry Leadership Award

Winner: Igor Smelyansky, Ukrposhta

Igor Smelyansky, CEO, Director General of Ukrposhta, has been responsible for maintaining postal services across Ukraine and leading around 70,000 postal staff during a full-scale war, in the face of numerous challenges including bombs and missiles, significantly destroying infrastructure. Under life-threatening and incredibly difficult circumstances, he has kept his organisation operational, his staff motivated and, through regular interaction with other postal operators abroad, also internationally supported. And on top of that he has issued globally recognised defiant stamps to mark key moments in the war, depicting resilience, courage and incredible determination. His relentless engagement for Ukrposhta and unswayable resolve to provide essential infrastructure services under war-time conditions is both outstanding and inspiring.
