Manual shipment process is a tedious job for most courier services. But it has been the practice for a long time now. Even with the advent of technology, the underlying process still remains largely the same. It results in increased errors and waste of human hours. It also means more people need to be employed to sort the packages.
Locus partnered with a top courier delivery services company in India. The conglomerate is South Asia's premier courier and integrated express package distribution company.
The manual sorting process consumed a lot of the company’s resources. This meant there were errors and hence a higher processing time and human resource cost. This ultimately resulted in reduced time on the field to deliver and a lack of accurate checks for miss-routes.
After implementing Locus’ automated parcel sorting solution the total sorting time reduced from 75 minutes to 30 minutes or a 60% time-saving. It also resulted in more than a 70% decrease in the number of people deployed for the entire sorting process. There was a 95%-97% mapping accuracy.
