Back in March 2020 when pandemics and lockdown first hit, we were writing that, when people and companies face the unknown, they adapt, find their balance and adopt new ways to thrive.
After 10 months of difficulties and challenges to overcome, we can say that 2020 was not a bad year for Logistics and Retail, after all. Customers rediscovered what truly matters and became increasingly aware of the value of their time, money and relationships with people and brands.
Many companies accelerated their innovation, adjusted their business models and implemented new technologies and processes that they were postponing for too many years.
More and more product categories, from food to cars, found their ways from the shelves of brick&mortar stores to the desktop or the smartphone's screen, right at the customers' fingertips.
Such changes and more were possible due to digital technologies, open platforms, process automation and data-driven decision algorithms that allowed for fast-paced adoption, seamless integration, optimal change management and control.
The international Logistics Tech Outlook Magazine ranked the best logistics solutions from across Europe that made possible the change of paradigm in 2020. Among AI solutions, smart robotics, electric and driverless vehicles, Postis Platform proudly stands in the Top 10 European Logistics Solutions of 2020 for its cutting-edge technology and its impact in logistics and delivery efficiency, business optimization, operational excellency and enhanced customer experience enablement.

To those who adopted new technologies in their core operations, 2021 brings new opportunities for business growth, product diversification, market expansion, customer loyalty. To those retailers that did not have the chance yet to adjust their business model and implement tech innovations, now it is the time for change.
