The award criteria was based on innovation, value and impact. The winning solution needed to be able to identify new, so far unmet customer needs with a unique value proposition, good cost – benefit ratio, a robust business model and market entry strategy with significant value proposition.
Bernhard Bukovc of the Postal Innovation Platform said “The judges gave a clear vote and selected ZigZag, which provides a solution in an area that is of utmost relevance for postal and logistics providers – returns. We had some strong entries, but we believe ZigZag has the capability to be a game changer, with an impact on the industry, the environment and society.”
E-Commerce and Innovation awards at the World Post & Parcel Awards 2018
Judges were happy to award ZigZag for the E-Commerce award sponsored by PostEurop, stating that “the issue of handling returns effectively is becoming increasingly important in the global e-commerce market. The winning entrant has developed a platform that makes the process easy for the end customer whilst also helping the retailer get products back into their supply chain more quickly and profitably.”
For the Innovation award, the judges said: “This is always one of the most popular categories and there is no shortage of new ideas emerging in the logistics industry. In overall terms however, the judges are driven by initiatives that are significant, that carry or will have weight. The judges found all the shortlisted entries worthy but selected a winner based on its solution to a global logistics challenge.”
