Lynden increased driver productivity in one week by integrating the Document Scanner SDK

Lynden Success Story

Lynden moves freight by land, water, and air. Its extensive fleet includes trucks, barges, hovercraft, and Hercules aircraft. The group operates both in the US and internationally, with a strong presence in Alaska and the Pacific Northwest.



Use Case

Scanning freight documents and barcodes on trucks



Development Platform

Ionic Cordova



Lynden’s drivers had to physically submit all necessary freight documents at the end of their shift. With a scanning feature in the driver app, they could upload these immediately after completing a pickup or delivery task.



Lynden was looking for an SDK that could scan both the 2D barcodes on their trucks and freight documents. It also needed to be fully compatible with the Ionic and Cordova frameworks. The team evaluated various options to determine the most suitable solution for their driver app.



Lynden decided on the Scanbot Document Scanner SDK. It includes fast and reliable barcode scanning functionalities as well as an intuitive document scanner that enables anyone to capture and upload high-quality scans. It also supports a wide range of platforms and frameworks, including Ionic and Cordova. The Lynden team finished integrating the SDK into their app in just one week.

Key results

Scanbot SDK Real Time Feature

Fast access to data

By scanning the truck barcode, drivers can view all tasks assigned to that vehicle.

Scanbot SDK Convenience

Efficient workflows

Drivers no longer have to physically submit documents at the end of their shift – instead, they scan and upload them immediately.

Scanbot SDK Cost Efficient

Faster billing

The billing process can begin as soon as a driver uploads the necessary documents, eliminating delays.

Lynden Success Story

Lynden has developed an Android application that permits its drivers to scan truck barcodes. This helps them to load their daily tasks efficiently. They can also upload crucial documents and freight images which are required to complete each task. This innovative solution has streamlined their activities, making them more efficient and productive.

Lynden faced friction in the original workflow

  1. Drivers receive multiple tasks during their shifts, completing them one after another.
  2. They need to collect all paperwork related to each task.
  3. At the end of their shifts, they submit all documents to the office staff at once.
  4. The office staff scans all documents and uploads them to the company system.
  5. The billing process begins when all documents are uploaded.

Lynden's improved workflow with the Scanbot SDK

  1. Drivers receive multiple tasks during their shifts, completing them one after another.
  2. After completing each task, they scan and upload all related documents.
  3. The billing process begins immediately after the documents have been uploaded.

The new process spares drivers an additional trip to the office and enables the billing team to start processing documents as they come in. This saves valuable time for everyone involved, and improves overall productivity.

Scanbot SDK’s vision and mission statement

Our initial goal for the Scanbot SDK was for it to read all kinds of data via mobile devices – today, this has become a reality. The easy-to-integrate Barcode Scanning, Document Scanning, and Data Capture software creates virtually endless possibilities to streamline and facilitate processes for companies, employees, and customers alike, whether in retail, logistics, manufacturing, or healthcare.

We now build computer vision algorithms and machine learning models that understand all kinds of different data types. Our efforts open up even more possibilities for automated workflows that connect and process data in real time.

At the same time, we want to protect users’ personal data, which is why we opted for on-device intelligence. Scan results are encrypted before transmission to keep them safe from any outside attacks. To guarantee maximum privacy, no data is ever sent to Scanbot SDK’s or any other server.
