BY Dan Berthiaume

Canadian logistics provider Purolator Inc. is providing a view into key delivery workflows with mobile devices.

Purolator will use Zebra mobile devices for drivers, retail and hub operations and ShipTrack software for track and trace, dispatch and hub management operations. A customized Solution as a Service (SaaS) model developed by Zebra, ShipTrack and mobility support provider PiiComm will support the technology. The new SaaS model incorporates enterprise mobile devices and software with a goal of improving delivery time, increasing operational efficiency and delivering a better customer experience.

Purolator will deploy ShipTrack’s software platform on Zebra enterprise mobile computers and tablets for streamlined dispatch, route optimization, and track and trace and reporting throughout its field, hub and retail operations. The company will deploy Zebra ring scanners in the hub to enable hands-free operations. PiiComm and Zebra will jointly provide end-to-end lifecycle management for the mobile devices with Zebra’s Lifeguard for Android software security solution.

“Our relationship with Zebra and ShipTrack fulfills our hardware, software and service needs and ensures we stay ahead of the digital needs of our customers and our industry for years to come,” said Ricardo Costa, CIO, Purolator. “This is a foundational investment and an important step forward in Purolator’s digital evolution that will enable us to put our customers, recipients and employees in the driver’s seat with new innovation over the long term.”
