Technology from Optidev Enables Same Day Delivery With PostNord
“It is Optidev that has developed the software for the new concept MyPack Home SameDay from PostNord, enabling delivery on the same day the order is placed”, says Optidev’s CEO Fredrik Logenius.
PostNord and the apparel retailer Lager 157 recently announced that they would start offering the SameDay service for orders placed before 3:00 pm through a pilot test in Stockholm. In the spring PostNord plans to offer this service to other e-retailers throughout Sweden. PostNord drivers already use the Optidev app to get information about where packages should be picked up, how many there are, where they should be delivered to, and in what order. The SameDay solution developed by Optidev allows them to track the status for all packages.
“Our SameDay API enables PostNord to see where packages are located and it provides the latest GPS coordinates and the estimated delivery time. This information can be shared with PostNord’s customers”, explains Fredrik Carlund, key account manager at Optidev.
Optidev’s collaboration with PostNord goes back many years. In addition to the mobile app for the drivers’ handheld devices and the new API for the SameDay service, Optidev is responsible for the technology that enables PostNord to remotely control and update all the mobile devices and also handles the service of the handheld devices.
“It is inspiring and developing to work with a large and leading company like PostNord that is also an early adopter of new technology. PostNord has the strength, logistics capability and size to establish the SameDay service throughout Sweden”, concludes Fredrik Logenius.
