DHL Supply Chain launches app

DHL Supply Chain has launched the SmartPOD app, which provides DHL’s drivers and third party hauliers with a means of capturing real time data and electronic proof of delivery (POD) information.  

Developed in conjunction with transport management solution specialist Microlise, the app provides at-a-glance vehicle location data, including departure and arrival times, plus real time POD information.

In trials, the results have been impressive, cutting admin costs and payment lead times, while allowing drivers to concentrate on their deliveries rather than have to report regularly to base, says DHL Supply Chain. 

DHL and Microlise are also developing a dashboard for drivers to report their mileage and carbon impact.

Data collected from the SmartPOD app will be accessed through a web portal, providing hauliers with all the information they need to help reduce emissions and make further cost savings. This additional feature will be available from June 2013.

The SmartPOD app can be downloaded from Google Play and is currently available on the Android platform for Smartphones.
