Addressing platform what3words is streamlining postal deliveries to customers across Mongolia.

Mongol Post, Mongolia's national postal delivery service, has adopted what3words to this end.

what3words'easy-to-use address system is integral to Mongol Post's service and will help drive the country's economic development.

Prior to what3words, customers in the country had no access to postal services or deliveries and had to collect mail from Post Office boxes dozens of kilometres away from their homes.

"We are on a mission to change the way people communicate location, because we want to make the world a more efficient, less frustrating and safer place," said Chris Sheldrick, CEO and co-founder of what3words. "Using what3words across the country will help Mongolia leapfrog many nations that still rely on outdated and poorly performing addressing systems."

Sustaining economic development

Mongolia will leverage what3words address system to sustain its economic development and attract investment.

The location reference system is available as a mobile app or API integration and works both online and offline.

The solution enables Mongol Post to easily discover an address, communicate it and deliver to it.

what3words will be integrated across Mongol Post's internal systems, enabling  postal workers to easily find the customer's front door.

"I have been working at the Mongol Post company for 10 years now. During this time, we have been presented with numerous local and international addressing systems and technologies," said Batsaikhan Tsedendamba, CEO of Mongol Post. "Of them all, I believe what3words is the most user-friendly and optimal technology. We are glad to be introducing this innovation, particularly as we see increasing numbers of postal consumers. We are confident that our cooperation will be a successful one."
