Success story – DHL

DHL Challenges

  • Booming e-commerce business leads to a steep increase to an already fluctuating overall shipment volume
  • DHL needed to address this increase while working with the same size areas in its parcel centers
  • Varying sizes and formats required a significant share of shipments needing to be manually processed

ProGlove Solution

A part of the project Bulky Good 2.0, DHL equipped its employees with ProGlove’s back-of-hand scanners. Therefore, workers are no longer tied to stationary workstations and can work from anywhere in the bulky goods areas.

The ProGlove Effect @Scale

  • Significantly increased efficiency and flexibility
  • DHL enhances the transparency and reliability of its services

ProGlove's Solution for the Logistics Industry

At logistics industry leader DHL, processing bulky goods at the dedicated terminal was a challenge, especially with a mounting volume of packages to process every day. Through a special initiative to address the situation, worker ergonomics and efficiency were prioritized. Bulky items are now processed wherever they land. The project aimed at considerably reducing the time workers were walking throughout the facility to process goods by choosing mobile solution.


To get started with the day, the operator opens the app, registers the wearable scanner by scanning the barcode and then registers the mobile printer. Now, the operator is ready to work anywhere bulky items are received in the facility.

“I am no longer forced to wait for the feeder and can start processing at the point where the bulky goods arrive. Therefore, I have natural time savings and more efficiency when working” say Jens Klostermann, DHL Bulky Baggage Handler.


By making the entire process mobile, and no longer tied to a stationary terminal, more time is spent processing new packages instead of traversing the hall. “Mobile scanning solutions such as Pro-Glove will increase the transparency and the reliability of our services in the future,” confirmed Dr. Simon Deymann.
