In the latest issue of m.logistics magazine, Sharon Clancy talked to TranSend Solutions about the adoption of smartphone apps for drivers and how this reduces costs and streamlines the delivery operation from vehicle checks to ePOD.
“Some SMEs have been under pressure to adopt ePOD because it is being demanded by their customers; yet the capital cost of devices has been a deterrent, even for larger companies. Rugged devices can be expensive, especially when subcontractors have to be factored in. Now drivers (and subcontractors) can simply download the TranSend app onto their smartphone and people are confident that the technology works. Once a driver has acknowledged that the app is installed, routes can be downloaded via the TranSend platform. Apps are written in basic Android code, so there are no concerns over what Android device or version the app is deployed on”.
