To address the current supply chain challenge of meeting exceptional levels of customer demand, many delivery and transport operations are under pressure and are having to rely on new, temporary or agency staff to fill the driver shortage gap. This includes food distributors, pharmaceutical suppliers, local authorities delivering essential food parcels and many other sectors who are keeping the country going during these difficult times.
To support the massive supply chain effort during the Coronavirus crisis, Civica will provide its TranSend ePOD driver app licences, free of charge, to public sector, not for profit, and private organisations directly supporting the government effort.
The solution will manage the tracking and delivery process, provide real-time visibility and remove the need for customers and drivers to handle physical paperwork, keeping them safer.
The intuitive driver app can be deployed in minutes and will provide the driver with step-by-step instructions that comply with your business processes, guide the driver using intelligent workflow and collect proof of delivery information.
Keith Hawker, MD for Civica Transport, comments:
“For our delivery customers, TranSend ePOD is a business-critical support tool in managing the additional capacity required at this critical time. We want to offer support for organisations that needs to quickly deploy additional drivers and manage the delivery process efficiently and effectively. As a company that has a proud history of supporting the public sector in enhancing the lives of our communities, we will continue to provide the complimentary ePOD licences whilst the impact of the pandemic requires their support.”
Civica already works with many food distribution companies doing their very best to maintain a constant supply of products to stores and food outlets, including Spar distributors, CJ Lang, AF Blakemore, James Hall and Henderson Wholesale.
