Fresh Ideas from Freshers

MaltaPost welcomes suggestions for new services from university students.

As part of a Freshers' Week competition, University and Junior College students were recently encouraged to brainstorm and offer suggestions for new products or services that they would like to see at MaltaPost Post Offices. The winners were recently announced and congratulated.

"Students use our services very regularly so it made sense to invite them to submit their own ideas," said Joseph Gafà, CEO at MaltaPost plc. "We are always looking to improve our services and this competition presented the ideal situation to find out what our customers really want."

A panel of judges chose the best suggestion: the fresh concept of international hub set-ups that forward online purchases not usually shipped to Malta.

MaltaPost welcomed the idea, which is in line with its short-term strategy to expand the market and increase mail flow into Malta. MaltaPost is now in the process of launching such a service.

The winners, Karl Camilleri, Stephanie Casha, Timothy Gingell, Maria Abdilla and Pearl Haber were presented with their prizes during a prize-giving ceremony held on Monday 27 February 2012 at the University Campus Post Office. The prizes, which were presented by Joseph Gafà, Charles Abdilla of Fexserv, Audrey Farrugia of Kinetix and Mr. Mark Coleiro of Constrading Ltd, included an HP Pro Book, One4All Gift Vouchers and a number of EASTPAK backpacks.
