TNT Express launches ‘Mobile Worker’ in Kuwait and Bahrain
TNT Express, the world’s leading B2B express delivery company has launched its ‘Mobile Worker’ communication units in Kuwait and Bahrain which enable drivers to send and receive delivery information in real-time through one hand-held scanner.
Introduced as part of a global strategy for its worldwide delivery network, the ‘Mobile Worker’ units enable high speed wireless communication of large quantities of data between depots and drivers. “We will introduce ‘Mobile Worker’ units in our vehicles in Kuwait which will significantly improve the speed and efficiency of our delivery operations,” said Richard Clayton, Country Manager – Kuwait, TNT Express.
“Mobile Worker” consolidates seven different communication systems into one unified and multi-functional solution and enables customers across the world to track their shipments in less than five minutes of pick up or delivery. This is particularly useful for those operating time critical businesses.”
The ‘Mobile Worker’ unit was launched in the UAE last year and the company is planning to introduce the hand-held scanners in Saudi Arabia by year-end.
“By implementing a ‘single system’ solution, TNT can deploy this technology across its network without the need to install and maintain a server infrastructure in each country. This will help create savings of up to 70 per cent,” added Clayton.
