Technology and couriering services

web-25.04.16--TECH--SC

Recently updates have largely surrounded technological advances that will affect couriering services in the future, but what about the present? From the advent of dark stores reserved solely to accommodate the ever-growing online shopping demand to talk of robotic drones taking over the skies. One thing is certain; the relationship between globalisation and E-commerce has differential effects pertaining to the scope and overall configuration of couriering industry.

Long-established couriers, offer services such as same day delivery and that is all down to technological advances. As a result of this couriering networks have become increasingly intelligent providing services such as prevalent parcel tracking. Our GPS enabled PDA devices are carried by our couriers ensuring that a parcel reaches its destination in the desired timeframe. This form of tracking also enables couriers to determine and implement improved route plans thus leading to clearer delivery windows from date of dispatch to the moment of delivery, what is now the incarnation of rapid deliveries.

Changes with the power of vehicles uses allows for the distribution of items that are either fragile or hold a medical purpose including temperature sensitive services for thermo-liable items. Developments have also led to the expansion of Forward Stocking Location (FSL) meaning that a business could have a mini-warehouse nearby in which control quantities of stock can be forwarded from to meet service level requirements. By shipping larger amounts to the chosen location can improve efficiency satisfying time expectations whilst maximising space utilisation.
