In this highly competitive industry, reducing operational costs and retaining customers is key to business survival. The TranSend ePOD – proof of delivery app and back office delivery monitoring system provides transport and logistics operations with real-time information and visibility of the whole delivery and collection process, from the point of despatch to the point of delivery or collection.
Using GPS to combine real-time location and SKU-level information, TranSend provides full job tracking capability via a PDA or vehicle telematics device, to monitor and manage the ‘on time in full’ (OTIF) customer delivery/collection process. TranSend ePOD supports Android smartphone and tablet devices as well as ruggedised devices.
Managers, drivers and customer service staff have tailored views that help them to interact appropriately with each customer. The result is enhanced customer service, reduced operational costs, streamlined billing and improved cash flow.
Supply Chain Integration – Integrate your WMS/ERP/Supply Chain solution as part of the ePOD implementation. TranSend Solutions has considerable experience in working with many of the UK’s leading supply chain software partners and has both the certified integration toolkits and experience to interface with many ERP and WMS systems.
Route Management – Generate routes for a single depot based upon vehicle type, order weight & volume and customer time windows. Add new jobs and re-sequence jobs automatically or manually using drag & drop facility. Full route planning available from our Routing Partners. Download brochure

Deliveries & Collections – Monitor and manage in real time and capture point-of-delivery information, including recipient signature, time & date stamp for accurate, same-day invoicing. Record shortages and damages, arrange same-day returns or replacements.
Route Compliance – Monitor and react to service and operational issues as they arise. Identify where potential efficiencies can be made to improve service levels, reduce operational costs, minimise fuel usage and environmental impact as well as maximise driver utilisation.
