(April 2, 2011, Shanghai, China) Urovo Tech (stock code: 300531), a leading industry application solution provider in the global market, announced that it will join forces with Yunda Express and ZTO Express to develop a logistics information system.
Logistics giants in East China have accelerated the development of logistics informatization. In order to facilitate business development, Yunda Express and ZTO Express have teamed up with Urovo Tech by using the Urovo i60 series as their informatized mobile data terminals. Handheld terminals under the Urovo i60 series will inevitably become a catalyst for logistics informatization.
Urovo Tech has successfully resolved delays in transmission of information and data for package pickup, shipment, and transfer at ZTO Express, which primarily involves the following operations:
Shipment pickup and delivery:
Using GPRS, the management center can ensure timely delivery of pickup and delivery orders to the Urovo i60 that is held by each delivery agent for follow-up procedures.
Pickup information management:
Our agents will visit the customer requesting pickup based on the pickup information delivered by the management center, and the following details will be sent back via GPRS to the management center by onsite scanning: waybill number (barcode), time of pickup, total cargo weight, number of packages, and price quotation.
Package transfer information management:
During the package transfer, the agents at each transfer station will collect information and data by scanning packages, which will be delivered to the management center by GPRS in real time. This can keep the management center constantly informed of information about packages including their location, which can be relayed to the customers in real time and assure the customers of their package shipments.
The agent who delivers the package to the customer can send the scanned and collected waybill number (bar code), time of delivery and other information to the management center via the GPRS network, and the management center can timely report the arrival details to the consignor. At the same time, remote networked cargo verification, such as cargo integrity inspection, cargo purpose verification, and consignee inspection, can be realized.
Signature in synchronization:
After receiving the package, the consignee should sign the waybill receipt for confirmation and affix his or her signature on the Urovo i60 terminal. The customer’s electronic signature and package details will be synchronized with the backend system in real time via the mobile GPRS network.
