Hitachi has signed a memorandum of understanding with Thailand Post, the Thai government-owned state enterprise under the supervision of the Ministry of Digital Economy and Society, to provide new postal services.

Hitachi and Hitachi Asia (Thailand) will work with Thailand Post to start proof of concept regarding an experimental digital post service that will enable receivers to receive notifications from state agencies through their computers and smartphones.

The agreement will also accommodate the outsourcing of a mail-printing service.

Hitachi said: “Studies will also be conducted on the needs associated with other public administrative information and various types of notifications from private companies, such as direct mail and invoices, to determine the feasibility of specific Thailand Post services specifically for such notifications.”
