Last-mile technology to boost Hermes delivery efficiency

LinkedIn +

PostTag, the last-mile delivery technology company, is to partner with Hermes to enhance the accuracy of its deliveries. PostTag states its automated platform takes delivery drivers to the correct front door, first time, every time. The technology checks, verifies and locates a customer’s precise address, as an order is placed, without any additional requirements or inputs from the consumer or the driver.

Paul Yewman, CEO, PostTag, commented on the partnership, “Covid-19 has changed the way deliveries are made, potentially forever. Many delivery companies are still relying on dated and inaccurate address platforms. Hermes has been working to further develop their geo tech within their MyPlaces app and has recognized that losing a minute on each delivery for trickier addresses can add up to thousands of hours over the course of a week – that’s where PostTag comes in.  Hermes delivers over 400 million parcels every year. Helping make this enormous operation even more efficient is something we are relishing.”

Chris Ashworth, CIO, Hermes UK, added, “PostTag is one of the steps that we are taking to keep ahead of the curve and we are delighted to be working with them. Our customers may not notice any change as it allows us to maintain our standards while catering for increased demand, but our drivers will. It will allow them to be even more efficient and remove the frustration of finding the right address quickly.”
