New Honeywell technology delivers mobile platform and workflow-focused driver solutions

HOLLAND, Mich., Aug. 04, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Holland, a transportation industry leader in next-day delivery, in coordination with Honeywell, has made a leap in customer care and driver satisfaction with the rollout of the innovative Honeywell Pickup and Delivery Solution. The Android-based logistics software, running on Honeywell’s Dolphin CT50 mobile computer, allows drivers to easily navigate through their workday, communicate with dispatch and update shipment status in real time. Drivers can also scan labels and take pictures of shipments when necessary, all on an app-driven device familiar to anyone who has used a smartphone.

“This investment in the new Honeywell technology has allowed us to proactively address hurdles facing the industry,” said Holland President Scott Ware. “Customers will benefit from heightened shipment visibility and driver communication. Best-in-class efficiency based on real-time data will support the old-fashioned quality and hard work customers already expect from Holland drivers.”

In the field, drivers are reporting that the Honeywell solution offers significant improvements in the daily management of their work. Drivers say the new system is intuitive and saves time through the automation of their daily workflow. They also call out the increased speed and reliability of communications with the Honeywell software and Dolphin CT50 device.

“By integrating the new Honeywell Pickup and Delivery Solution, Holland gains better operational intelligence providing a more satisfying and consistent experience to their customers,” said John Waldron, President and CEO, Honeywell Safety and Productivity Solutions. “With this software guiding drivers through each step of the pickup and delivery process, we can help Holland reduce the time needed to onboard new drivers while speeding communication of the time-sensitive shipment information needed for next-day delivery operations.”
