A small investment with nShift has made a huge difference to Danish Carrier, BFT Logistik, enabling them to track and document parcels delivered by all their affiliated freight companies.
Scan labels and upload data through our easy-to-use smartphone app.
BFT Logistik delivers everything from kitchens to mobile phones. But they don’t have any delivery vans or drivers of their own. Instead, they maintain partnerships with multiple independent freight companies, hiring fleet and external drivers as and when required.
The problem with using different freight companies is that each one has its own way of tracking and documenting parcels. So, how could BFT Logistik keep track of all the customer deliveries moving through its system?
4500parcels delivered daily
30+partnerships with external freight companies
75+drivers, depending on customer activity
Scan App provides BFT Logistik with a common scanning tool that is easy for all their affiliates to use and that ensures all their delivery data arrives in the same format. It was a minor investment for the company but, as CEO Thomas Wallin explains, has become an indispensable part of their business model: “Scan App is flexible and independent of hardware, which is highly significant for us, as we use many external drivers to deliver parcels and goods. With Scan App we are able to provide track and trace on all parcels, as long as the driver has a smartphone, which most people have today [and if they don’t, they can borrow one of ours].”
BFT Logistik have also become part of nShift’s carrier library – the largest of its kind in the world. This means that companies who use nShift for printing shipping labels and booking shipments can now choose BFT Logistik. ”Being a carrier [with nShift] means that we can be sure to get structured and automatically transferred shipment data from our customers, which streamlines our daily work. It also means that we are showcased to more potential customers, as we are available on a platform with more than 10,000 users and marketed on [nShift’s] website.”
