UAE’s official postal operator Emirates Post Group (EPG) has entered into a strategic partnership with Abu Dhabi’s global tech ecosystem, Hub71 in order to accelerate the digital transformation of the logistics sector in the Emirates.
This alliance intends to provide tech startups in the UAE with greater opportunities to collaborate with EPG and advance the logistics sector using next-generation technologies.
The partnership will focus on active collaborations with startups based at Hub71 and will facilitate meetings and introductions between EPG and founders who are driving smart businesses focused on increasing efficiency and productivity within the logistics industry.
“Emirates Post Group and Hub71 share a common mission of developing and nurturing tech startups in the UAE. We recognize their vital role in fast-tracking the logistics sector’s transition to the digital world. This partnership is also a manifestation of both entities’ commitment to advance Abu Dhabi’s development by investing in the business, innovation, and people. We look forward to participating in Hub71’s programs whose goals are aligned with our purpose and values as an organization.”
As part of the agreement, EPG will also provide mentorship for startup founders and support the development of Proof of Concepts (POCs). EPG-backed startups will also gain the ability to join Hub71’s vibrant community.
“Abu Dhabi has established itself as a global innovation and logistics hub, supported an enabling business ecosystem and by robust partnerships. Hub71’s partnership with EPG will support the transformation of the logistics sector, offering startups the opportunity to collaborate with an industry leader and drive mutually beneficial commercial growth,” said His Excellency Mohamed Ali Al Shorafa, Chairman of Hub71.
According to the statement, “Emirates Post Group will also explore opportunities to participate in Hub71’s programs, including The Outliers, which invites startups to solve challenges set by leading corporations and government partners, as well as EPG-tailored initiatives.” Both organizations will foster knowledge-transfer platforms to upskill entrepreneurs operating at Hub71.
