GLS ParcelShops in Germany equipped with Zetes printers and mobile devices
Around 5,000 GLS ParcelShops across Germany are now equipped with Zetes printers and mobile devices, in order to speed up and reduce errors for the handling of inbound and outbound parcels. In a statement issued yesterday (26 August), Zetes noted: “Zetes has supplied each ParcelShop with Zebra GX420d printers and TC55 mobile devices running a mobile application designed by GLS.
“Thanks to this new system, operators are now able to accept and hand over parcels more quickly and eliminate sources of errors.
“To ensure uptime of the system, Zetes will provide a fully managed service, including user helpdesk support, maintenance, repair and swap services.
“A mobile device management module allows GLS to remotely install new versions of its mobile app on all mobile devices.”
Zetes told Post&Parcel today that the roll-out was actually completed at the end of 2014.
It will be interesting to see whether the Zetes systems may be rolled out into GLS’s operations in other European countries in the future.
