APC Overnight meets critical timed deliveries for ZooBiotic
Innovative wound care specialists ZooBiotic has awarded a major contract to APC Overnight for fully traceable, timed UK-wide deliveries of its medical dressings.
Innovative wound care specialists ZooBiotic has awarded a major contract to APC Overnight for fully traceable, timed UK-wide deliveries of its medical dressings. The products have limited shelf life and therefore must arrive on time for immediate use by doctors and patients. ZooBiotic utilises APC Overnight’s local depot APC Western Couriers in Caerphilly to ship an average of 70 to 80 parcels per night.
ZooBiotic’s Sage production and accounting system links directly to the online APC Overnight shipping and tracking system. Bookings and manifests are transferred in real time using the advanced NetDespatch web service. This seamless integration provides essential end-to-end traceability of all ZooBiotic’s products with the aid of bar code shipping labels generated automatically by the system.
As the labels are scanned at each point of the parcel’s journey – from collection, out to the APC Overnight hub, onto the customer’s local depot and finally on delivery to the customer – ZooBiotic has full traceability of its products. This is further supported by electronic signature capture with the customer signing for Proof of Delivery on the delivery driver’s PDA, which is then transmitted wirelessly back to the system.
