Parcel delivery management company nShift and pinDeliver, a cloud-based delivery platform, are collaborating to offer customers a plug-and-play service for transportation planning that aims to make it easier for companies that own fleets to optimize the last mile and better communicate with customers.
Together, the companies have created two new general transportation services designed to streamline and digitize the entire delivery process. pinDeliver Delivery and pinDeliver Click & Collect both support shipping documents and complete integration with pinDeliver. Transportation statuses in both services are continuously reported to nShift, and displayed in its My Parcels parcel tracking app.
By using these new products, delivery companies will now gain access to real-time information about what is happening across their entire delivery process, including both partner carriers and their own fleet. As a result, they will be able to plan routes more efficiently and optimize last-mile deliveries, as well as measure performance of their own fleet against partner carriers, according to nShift and pinDeliver.
Many organizations integrate with nShift’s Delivery solution from their business systems and e-commerce platforms, meaning transportation assignments can be quickly and easily sent to pinDeliver for further handling. For those companies whose systems aren’t integrated with nShift Delivery, nShift has a network of partners who can offer plug-and-play modules for easy integration.
Lars Pedersen, CEO at nShift, said, “Businesses that own their own delivery fleets often don’t need a full transport management system. But they do need to ensure that their delivery management is as efficient as possible and that they offer their own customers the best possible experience. By working together, nShift and pinDeliver enable easy last-mile delivery route planning and optimization of a company’s fleet.”
“Through the cooperation with nShift we are able to reach out to a wide and interesting customer base and offer our modern and easy-to-use cloud services – a next-generation TMS for transportation and wholesale companies,” added Marcus Wigren, partner manager at pinDeliver.
