Norway Post, the Norwegian postal service, was founded in 1647. The agency is run by the Norwegian Ministry of Transport and Communications, which manages mail distribution throughout the country. In 2002, Norway Post changed its structure into a publicly-held company that issues stock to prepare for Norwegian postal market deregulation. The company also has businesses in other parts of the Nordic region.
Norway Post needed to replace its legacy, mainframe-based location management system with a modern, flexible, and standardized solution. To meet its goals, the company deployed Oracle Site Hub, resulting in improved quality for customer and mail carriers’ route data and a more efficient mail sorting process. The solution has helped Norway Post to significantly reduce operating and maintenance costs.
