NFC Smart-Packaging Solutions for International Mail and Parcel Industry

Thin Film Electronics and Prime Vision are collaborating to deliver innovative smart-packaging solutions across the broader mail and parcel industry. Dutch postal operator PostNL is a majority shareholder in Prime Vision. They will leverage Thinfilm’s NFC tags - both SpeedTap and OpenSense - in helping address key postal and logistics-related needs. Applications will initially target increased mail/parcel security, enhanced e-commerce functionality, and improved consumer communication.

Each SpeedTap and OpenSense tag is uniquely identifiable and virtually impossible to clone, and can be read with the simple tap of an NFC-enabled smartphone or device. Once tapped, tags wirelessly communicate with the cloud, empowering organizations to connect directly with consumers to instantly deliver authentication messages, serial numbers, and other relevant content. OpenSense technology also offers additional protection against package tampering and fraud.

Prime Vision provides solutions and has consulted on postal and logistics innovation projects for a large number of national postal organizations, including Austria Post, Australia Post, PostNord, Swiss Post, and Slovenia Post.
