Mr. Jean-Paul Forceville on behalf of La Poste, Mr. Botond Szebeny on behalf of PostEurop and Mr. Edouard Dayan on behalf of UPU co-signed the development contract with in the field of quality of service improvement for organizing the PostEurop Process Review to Russian Federation State Enterprise Russian Post in 2012. The activity is financed with the support of France (La Poste) and through its contribution to the UPU special fund.
The question of quality of service has become crucial, with customers now able to turn to other service providers to meet their needs. Priority action to improve quality of service, primarily through the use of new technologies and efficient technical assistance cooperation, has therefore become essential.
At the Committee 8 session of the 25th UPU Congress on Wednesday, 3 October 2012, Botond was given an opportunity to address the excellent on-going PostEurop Projects co-operation with the UPU International Bureau to date which has yielded results for the targeted members. We look forward to further co-operation with the UPU International Bureau in the next UPU-PostEurop projects programming cycle.
On 13 November 2013 PostEurop’s Market Activity Circle (MAC) organized its second Market Day Forum this year for its members. The broadened agenda included presentations and interactive discussions on the UPU’s new Product Strategy and Integration Group (PSIG), “Current e-commerce market in Europe and its future trends” from EMOTA, IPC e-commerce Interconnect programme, a face-to-face meeting with Johan Groffen from PrintBirdie an e-commerce e-tailer, Print Power and Stamps and Philately updates.
We asked participants to share a few words on the meeting and here are their responses:
“EMOTA and PostEurop could discuss how postal operators can help boost online sales at PostEurop’s Market Day Forum. It brought the members of PostEurop (postal operators) and sellers closer together in identifying solutions to the current challenges faced by online sellers.” - Susanne Czech (EMOTA)
“The 2nd Market Day Forum was just excellent, starting with the agenda and followed by the speakers, it was a very interesting and proactive day, I really learnt new inputs from the speakers covering all hot spots regarding E-Commerce and Direct Marketing. I would like to thank PostEurop very much for this fruitful and very interactive meeting and I would like to honestly recommend and invite other Postal Operators to participate in future meetings.” – Gabriel García Mayorga (Correos)
“The program covered a good range of topics with highly qualified speakers. It was interesting to learn about the developments and trends for E-Commerce in Europe, which is growing at a remarkable speed, in 2012 with 20%, as well as about the challenges the postal services face by the demands of the growing e-commerce industry, but also the possibilities it opens. Representing a postal service actively involved in e-commerce the day was very rewarding and I am already looking forward to the next Market Day.” –Anita Häggblom (Posten Åland)
PostEurop‘s Market Day Forum helped me learn more on the UPU PSIG and their work, including their discussions on letter regulation to facilitate advertisement on the ‘front’ side of envelops, a marketing technique that Direct Marketers support. The Market Day was also the opportunity to network with postal operators and partners such as Two Sides. FEDMA, which has a Marketing Connection Committee to enable members to discuss Direct Marketing business trends, is convinced of the added value of these business minded committees. FEDMA warmly thanks Posteurop and wishes success for future Market Day. – Géraldine Proust (FEDMA)
“Chairing the UPU’s PSIG challenges us (as UPU Member Countries) to think more about the customer. We need to change our approach because we’re not the only game in town. If we want to be around for years to come, we have to offer a sustainable global product range and that’s the challenge. You might ask, have we been so negligent of customers’ needs in the past? .. perhaps not , butmoving into an increasingly competitive marketplace forces us to look at customer needs more thoroughly. That’s why I welcomed the recent opportunity to present what the UPU is doing at the Market Day Forum. It was extremely valuable to share views, with not only its members but also FEDMA and EMOTA who were also present. This combination makes the Market Forum a great place to share information and gain an insight to what’s important for members but also for its customers.” – Chris Powell (Royal Mail)
