ProGlove´s Solution for Post and Parcel Distribution Centers
DPDgroup is the largest parcel delivery network in Europe. With 97,000 delivery experts and a strong network of logistics hubs, they ship 1.9 B parcels per year worldwide. In Switzerland alone DPD delivers almost 100.000 parcels per day.
In a price-sensitive and competitive environment, DPD has the challenge to orchestrate fast and accurate sorting for the delivery tours in multiple distribution centers countrywide. They introduced a pre-sorting process to prepare each tour with 150-250 parcels. DPD experiences high peaks and needs to have the right workforce size for the demand at the right time at the right location in this process.
After introducing ProGlove Insight in combination with MARK Basic wearable scanners, DPD is now able to track and visualize productivity per section with different workloads and plan and reallocate staff according to the workload.
