Emirates Post Group launches ‘Logistics Unleashed’ competition


Emirates Post Group (EPG), in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and various technology partners, has launched its first annual robotics competition aimed at bridging the gap between academia and industry.

To this end, EPG invites all university students who are passionate about innovation and robotics to take part in the first “Logistics Unleashed” competition, which is run as an educational initiative.

The Ministry of Education emphasized the importance of the competition in enriching students’ technical skills, improving their innovation ability, and using their creativity. It aims to let students understand the logistics industry.

The Ministry of Education will invite students with robotics and programming skills to register their interest through a dedicated link to participate in EPG’s innovative programs.

Three teams of two to four students, at least one of whom is a UAE national, will be selected to build a robot as a solution to a competition case study. EPG will provide AED5,000 (US$1,361.25) to each participating team to purchase the necessary materials to enable teams to bring their innovative ideas to life.

A notable element of the competition is the accompanying educational program, which will be held from September to November. Participating students will visit EPG’s facilities, including sortation centers and retail outlets, as well as the headquarters of participating technology partners, to gain first-hand insights into the logistics industry and the potential technological advancements that can be incorporated.

EPG’s partnership with the Ministry of Education demonstrates its commitment to nurturing talent and advancing the logistics industry. Backed by the Group’s technology partners Bayanat, SkyGo and STRATA, the ‘Logistics Unleashed’ program promises to unlock a world of new opportunities for participating students and the logistics industry.

All participating students who successfully complete the program will receive monetary awards, as well as trophies and certificates in recognition of their efforts. — trade arab news agency
