PostalPitch Submissions Deadline Fast Approaching!

Submissions Close August 19th

PostalPitch invites Startups to present innovative products or solutions with a unique value proposition that may have the potential to change the postal and logistics market or even create a new market. Startups can present their idea, product or solution to a wide audience, and a jury of postal and logistics experts will select the Startup that ranks best according to the award criteria.   The deadline for submissions is fast approaching — August 19, 2018!

Among all applications, an esteemed panel of jurors (including DHL, USPS, Royal Mail, PostNL, Swiss Post, Accenture and several others) will select the finalists that will get the opportunity to present their idea, product or solution during the PostalPitch event to take place on October 9, 2018 at Post-Expo in Hamburg. Only Startups that will be present at the event will be eligible for the award. Therefore,  only Startups who are able to be present at PostalPitch / Post-Expo on October 9, 2018 should submit.

In addition, please also check out our Startup Avenue offer. We organize a specially dedicated area at Post-Expo reserved for startups. It’s simple and the exhibition space per startup is smaller than a regular stand, but the price is lower as well. In addition, each startup on StartUp Avenue will get the opportunity to pitch its product/solution at Post-Expo on our startup day. You can find all relevant information at

We hope to see you in Hamburg !
