Romania’s Urgent Cargus invests in delivery
Romania’s Urgent Cargus has announced that it has recently made significant investments in its delivery technology. The company has bought 1,500 Intermec scanners, which can be used to photograph deliveries so customers can a physical proof of delivery (POD).
In a statement issued on Thursday (12 May), the company added: “With the support of a second investment, all Urgent Cargus couriers now use mobile printers. This ensures the process of issuing the transport documents is now fully automated and also reduces the waiting time for customers. Moreover, taking into account the ever increasing demand for non-cash payments via electronic devices, Urgent Cargus has also acquired 170 scanners that allow credit cards for testing in Bucharest.
“The usage of mobile equipment allows the couriers of Urgent Cargus to pick up and deliver packages faster while the customers are able to track packages in real time. Also, by using mobile printers, they are now able to print bills and receipts on the spot, thus making the pick-up/ delivery process completely automatic.”
Urgent Cargus is also working with ORTEC on a route optimization programme, which will enable real-time tracking and offer customers “a far more predictable delivery time”.
In order to support the route optimization process, Urgent Cargus is deploying 2,000 GPS tracking devices.
