This collaboration marks a significant milestone in Thailand Post’s journey towards enhancing its delivery network and embracing innovative technology to meet the evolving needs of its customers.
Like many other postal operators, Thailand Post faces a challenging environment, including escalating costs, intense competition, increases in parcels and delivery frequencies, rising customer expectations, and growing international shipments.

With Escher’s help, we aim to achieve end-to-end real-time visibility across our delivery network, enhance operational efficiency, and ensure a superior experience for every customer.
Thailand Post will implement Escher’s solutions using a control tower approach. The result will be a unified, end-to-end delivery network that tracks and enables real-time operational insights and improved control of all parcels, packets, and mail items across Thailand Post’s network. This approach will provide enhanced visibility, greater delivery flexibility, improved processes, and efficiencies and chart a better path toward sustained profitability.
