Grocery giant Nisa is launching a new digital means of operating which will end the use of paper delivery notes for all of its partners.
The EPOD (electronic proof of delivery) system will be rolled-out from the end of February with deliveries from all depots moving to the paperless system by early April.
The digital process will begin when the order is picked at the depot with the delivery note of confirmed items generated and sent to the store email address, in advance of the driver arriving.
“The new system completely removes the need for all the paperwork involved in the delivery process and will improve record-keeping and efficiency. This represents an important technological development for Nisa and our logistics partners DHL”, said Jess Graves, Logistics Team at Nisa.
Scott Swindin, Head of Development at DHL Supply Chain UK&I added: “As a partnership DHL and Nisa are always striving to enhance the partner’s delivery experience and the introduction of a digitalised solution such as EPOD will help us all with improved on time delivery information, reduced waiting time, support of media tracking as well as fostering the green agenda with reduced paperwork.”
