Checking, Scanning and Proof of Delivery [Infographic]
November 19, 2020
They say it's better to see something once than to hear about it a hundred times.
In this blog post, we visualize the most important processes in Track-POD last-mile delivery workflow: scanning, checking, and electronic Proof of Delivery (POD).
1. Load Check -> Sign -> Delivered
1.1 LOAD CHECK
The driver starts the route and passes the Load Check, where they confirm or do not confirm the fact of the loading of the orders. If the order was not loaded, it is automatically assigned the Rejected status.
1.2 IN TRANSIT
The driver has passed the Load Check and is on the way to the client's address.
1.3 DELIVERED / NOT DELIVERED
The driver arrives at the customer's address. Orders with the Rejected status after the Load Check cannot be delivered. For other orders, to confirm that they were successfully delivered, the driver gives their mobile phone to the customer for e-signature and feedback.
Then, the order is assigned the Delivered status and after passing all the points, the driver can close the route.
2. Scanning while Load Check -> Scanning on customer's site
The driver scans orders when passing the Load Check to confirm that they have been shipped, and then at the customer's location to confirm successful delivery.
3. Scanning of items
The driver scans all items in the order at the customer's address. After the process is complete, this order will automatically be assigned the status Scanned.
