The “Smart Mobility Award” aims to encourage the development and adoption of Smart Tourism, Smart Logistics and Smart Transport applications, in order to drive the growth of smart city and enhance the quality of life, creating a more convenient, safer and more efficient environment for citizens and tourists.
Ms. Anna Lin, Chief Executive of GS1 HK said, “As the pandemic begins to ease and outbound travel restrictions gradually relaxed, the logistics, transportation and tourism industries are tapping in new technologies to prepare for the rebound in passengers and transportation needs forthcoming. From facilitating passenger departure to supporting passenger navigation and travel booking products, they are capitalizing on the trends; we also see solutions that address the day-to-day issues, for example mitigating parking and transport problems, automating the logistics processes, as well as ensuring construction quality, they are raising the bar for people living standard and business operations.”
Hong Kong Airport Authority won “Smart Mobility Grand Award” and “Smart Mobility (Smart Transport) Gold Award” with its “Flight Token Travel”. A convenient service for majority of travelers and manpower / cost saving for the authority, Flight Token Travel is a self-service biometric identification system that enables passengers to enjoy a seamless departure journey at Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA).
