VTT and Finland Post Corporation develop intelligent logistics

03.05.2006


Partners to strengthen co-operation



VTT and Finland Post Corporation have strengthened their co-operation in research and development. The new co-operation agreement allows Finland Post Corporation to utilise VTT’s versatile knowledge of intelligent logistics in technology projects. The first joint projects relate to RFID (Radio frequency identification) and automation technologies.

Finland Post Corporation is a service company that specialises in intelligent logistics and invests actively in new technologies. The Technology Centre of Finland Post Corporation co-ordinates technical development projects and focuses on the new business opportunities that the near future has to offer.


Networking with research partners such as VTT allows Finland Post Corporation to create technologies for the future. Finland Post Corporation is interested in the new opportunities of both production technology and electronic communications.

VTT turns technology into business operations. VTT offers Finland Post Corporation internationally acknowledged expertise in various fields, including information and communications technology and innovation management.

The opportunities provided by future technologies combined with a knowledge of changes in the market serve as an excellent starting point for the development of new business. VTT finds it natural to co-operate with Finland Post Corporation, as the company is a leader in the development of logistics as a user of its technologies.

The partners already have tangible results of their co-operation in fields such as RFID technology, the automation of distribution and usability.

Im Focus: Self-illuminating pixels for a new display generation

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?

At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...

Im Focus: Explanation for puzzling quantum oscillations has been found

So-called quantum many-body scars allow quantum systems to stay out of equilibrium much longer, explaining experiment | Study published in Nature Physics

Recently, researchers from Harvard and MIT succeeded in trapping a record 53 atoms and individually controlling their quantum state, realizing what is called a...

Im Focus: Dozens of binaries from Milky Way's globular clusters could be detectable by LISA

Next-generation gravitational wave detector in space will complement LIGO on Earth

The historic first detection of gravitational waves from colliding black holes far outside our galaxy opened a new window to understanding the universe. A...

Im Focus: Entangled atoms shine in unison

A team led by Austrian experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.

The age of quantum technology has long been heralded. Decades of research into the quantum world have led to the development of methods that make it possible...

Im Focus: Computer-Designed Customized Regenerative Heart Valves

Cardiovascular tissue engineering aims to treat heart disease with prostheses that grow and regenerate. Now, researchers from the University of Zurich, the Technical University Eindhoven and the Charité Berlin have successfully implanted regenerative heart valves, designed with the aid of computer simulations, into sheep for the first time.

Producing living tissue or organs based on human cells is one of the main research fields in regenerative medicine. Tissue engineering, which involves growing...
