Palletforce has upgraded its electronic proof of delivery (ePOD) system to include real-time vehicle tracking and improved notification facilities at a cost of around £2 million.
The Palletforce system also includes the ability to send updates to consignees via SMS, email and Twitter as pallets move through the delivery process. It is linked to the Alliance system that tracks freight, offers live updates to members and customers as well as an accurate proof of location.
The system has already started to be deployed, with full roll out by the end of September.
Palletforce head of IT Kate Lovatt said: “Palletforce was first to market with the original ePOD system and now ePOD2 will ensure we are delivering the innovative technology to benefit both our members and their customers. The addition of several new efficiency-enabling features will improve the effectiveness of the system and allow us to further enhance quality, service and safety.”
