According to the agreement, FPT will cooperate with Siemens Postal, Parcel & Airport Logistics (SPPAL) in the areas including innovative software technology and consulting. By joining forces with FPT, Siemens is extending its network of strategic partners and driving forward the digitalization of logistics.

“We are working with Siemens to identify what opportunities this partnership could open up,” said Pham Minh Tuan, CEO of FPT. “To this end, a Hackathon has already taken place in SPPAL’s new MindSphere Application Center in Dubai. In adopting this collaborative approach, we’ve laid the foundations for the joint development of innovative software solutions.”
