Track packages on the last mile with mobile barcode technology and optimize your delivery process

Peak times in parcel delivery demand absolute precision and efficiency at every stage of the value chain. To satisfy the ever-growing expectations of modern customers, companies must flexibly adapt to peaks in demand with cost-effective workflows. Mobile barcode scanning on smartphones or tablets offers all the benefits of conventional handheld devices, such as speed, precision, and ruggedness – but at lower cost.

With the Scanbot Barcode SDK, your employees can scan up to 113 barcodes per second. Together with features like multi-scanning, this maximizes efficiency on the last mile. Sorting and loading, tracking, collecting PoDs – all use cases in delivery can be covered with one powerful tool. Parcel delivery has never been faster than with modern scanning solutions.

By using strategies like BYOD, companies can flexibly adapt to fluctuating workloads: New employees won’t have to wait for dedicated devices, nor will they need training as they’re familiar with smartphone usage. On top of that, the Scanbot SDK offers detailed user guidance that leads even less experienced couriers to the perfect scan.
