Manual delivery systems present major challenges

Today, customers demand short delivery times, and have come to expect next-day, or even same-day delivery, as well as detailed visibility into their delivery’s progress. Transportation providers must operate at peak performance and enable transparency for their customers and recipients alike. Trying to accomplish this with manual, paper-based delivery systems presents major challenges:

  • Once a truck leaves the warehouse you have no idea where it is at any given point during the journey.
  • With written records, vital information such as delivery notes, damages and changed load devices will not be available until the driver has returned to the distribution center.
  • Customer requests and complaints can’t be addressed in a timely manner because customer service cannot be informed until after the driver returns.
  • Customers demand real-time delivery information, especially during the timeframe immediately before delivery.

Proof of Delivery optimizes delivery processes

Our Proof of Delivery solution digitizes and collects information about the delivery progress, including digital signatures, and then makes it available in real time to all stakeholders. 

Drivers use a mobile application to record, communicate and transmit all activities related to deliveries, returns and returnable goods. This information is then shared, via a secure web portal, with transportation providers, customers and recipients. They also receive continual updates of the delivery status, from the distribution center to the point of delivery. 

The resulting transparency also enables accurate invoicing and processing of customer complaints, and allows you to optimize delivery processes. Our Proof of Delivery solution also offers complete deployment flexibility: it is available as a standalone solution, or it can be integrated into your existing supply chain applications from Körber, SAP or other  vendors. In addition, customers can host the solution’s backend and web-based portal in Körber’s cloud or on their premises. 

Transportation service providers who have already deployed a proof of delivery solution can use our EDI component to exchange data with customers.
