Promoter – Financial Intermediary
SLOVENSKA POSTA AS
The project is part of the promoter's investment programme to digitalise and transform its operations and portfolio of services, including the universal service for postal services. The promoter's key objective is to adapt the organisation to the drastic changes in its business driven by the internet and digital technologies in general, while fulfilling its universal service obligation with high quality and efficiency. The project will mainly include investments in new IT systems (hardware and software) as well as specialised postal equipment, such as parcel sorting lines.
The promoter's objectives are to develop new value added services and to increase the efficiency of its operations, which will allow it to free up resources from the declining part of the business (mail services) and re-deploy them in its growing parcel logistics operations and the new value added services, increasing its competitiveness in the market.
