Human beings are hard-wired to be highly social, as reflected in our tendency to stick to close-knit communities and seek meaningful connections with others. And in a world that has gone increasingly digital, we are evolving to be more appreciative of even the slightest physical gestures — like receiving hand-written postcards over snail mail. While a humble postcard does not have much space for elaborate exchanges as a digital medium would, it still reflects the sender's sincerity with picking out a card, writing down the address, and posting it in a nearby letterbox.

The rush of dopamine that people get when they receive a postcard or a package does not hurt either. Studies have shown that the 'unboxing experience' — mostly reserved for e-commerce packages — can alter moods, as the experience can trigger a sense of novelty and surprise, creating a positive emotional response. A postcard carrying lovely imagery and heartfelt words can help uplift spirits, making it a piece of happiness in one's mailbox.

Amidst this cherished tradition of sending postcards or packages, opportunities exist to enhance the experience further and extend the joy of receiving these tangible tokens of connection. This is where Swiss WorldCargo can step in.
