Who needs paper? Mobile Proof of Delivery

In the distribution business, no order is complete until the delivery paperwork is finished. With mobile proof of delivery the process has changed. Because any process with paper is synonymous with waste, riddled with inefficacies, and error prone.  This presents an opportunity for change and a small up-front investment can improve profitability within in 6 months.

Documents used in the mobile proof of delivery process present the best opportunity to go paperless. When drivers receive load manifests or bills of lading at the shipping dock, carrying the paper along with the load might seem like second nature, at least until the errors pile up in the back to the office.  Customers and employees see the downside of paperwork as it comes across their desks, but what it costs may not be all that apparent.

Antiquated document management systems and services have become widely used to route documents, or rather images, into the office to speed up billing, payroll and other tasks. But the technology can also make it easy to lose sight of additional savings by removing paperwork altogether.

Our research shows that a paper proof of delivery (POD) process requires 1.5 minutes, per document, to manage. Since time is money, a 10-truck fleet that makes 30 deliveries per truck per day could save about $4,140 a month in labor costs ($30 per hour) and forms by eliminating paper.  This doesn’t take into account the soft costs built into responding to customer requests for proof of delivery information and documents.
