The Initiative

Connecting the physical world, that is IoT. Objects of all nature will soon be connected using diverse networks and technologies so you can access and control them from anywhere.

To actively participate in this great technological evolution bpost invites innovators to put at use its existing assets in an innovative way. The very dense physical network of bpost vehicles, buildings and mailboxes are there for you to connect. What makes bpost unique however, is the daily contact of over 13.000 post(wo)men reaching out daily to more than 4 million homes.

Make a difference

Now there is an opportunity; connect the world of tomorrow while uplifting the value of human interaction in our society of the future.

bpost covers the last mile between the technology and those you care about, adding a friendly smile to technology
