In a short period of time, the world has changed due to Covid-19. While many organizations are negatively impacted, logistics organizations are experiencing a busier time than ever.
Consequences for your organization
Since the start of the Covid-19 restrictions the volume of e-commerce parcels has been fluctuating and logistics organizations need to adapt quickly in order to deal with rapidly changing volumes, work conditions and customer demand. Brody Buhler, global managing director of Accenture’s Post and Parcel industry group, shares Accenture’s recent research on how COVID is affecting the Postal and Parcel industry and provide insight in how organizations respond.
How do other logistic companies cope with those challenges?
Current times require different solutions and attitudes. A flexible and scalable system seems to be the answer… think about a flexible sorting platform, web-based video coding and sorting with robots. Prime Vision’s Commercial Director Dirk van Lammeren talks about industry best practices and how Prime Vision supports her clients in dealing with the effects of COVID.
In 2019 over 60 billion parcels originate from Chinese import. Profitable to companies such Alibaba, AliExpress, Wish and JD.com. But does it also benefit your organization?
Effects on your organisation
Postal and Parcel distribution centers often encounter challenges when processing these parcels. Sorting and delivery are delayed as a result of lower quality address labels on parcels. Many of the labels are incorrectly formatted, have in illogical order and/or lack critical information.
Prepare for additional Border checks
Moreover, with the new EU regulation effective from January 1st, 2021 all cross-border parcels regardless of their value must be declared to customs. That means information from all CN labels on cross-border parcels require registration, not just parcels within the current threshold value of € 22.
Manual registration of this information will almost certainly have a huge impact on your organization and increase workload.
