As a part of the deal, FarEye will implement an intelligent delivery platform to achieve on-time deliveries at a reduced cost. It would be implementing data-driven routing engine to increase deliveries per hour and provide a delightful and engaging experience to the customers by empowering them to track their shipments live.
"The supply chain and logistics challenges of GCC are unique. The sudden need to scale during particular festivals, inaccurate addresses, changing cross-border regulation requirements among others often becomes a roadblock when it comes to ensuring seamless execution of supply chain and logistics. We are thrilled to work with the largest postal and retail players in the region and look forward to deliver exceptional levels of operational efficiencies and delightful customer experience. We are scaling our team in the region and seeing tremendous potential here," said Gautam Kumar, COO, FarEye.
This development comes at a time when supply chain and logistics organisations in GCC are looking for ways to deliver on changing customer expectations, ensure rapid scalability, locate addresses accurately and gain competitive advantage. The growing ecommerce ecosystem in the region will now drive retailers and logistics organisations to provide seamless, faster and flexible delivery experience.
In the world of post and parcel, it is imperative to be customer centric, but at the same time, keeping a check on costs is equally important. "Global logistics spending is set to soar to $10.6 trillion by 2020 with transportation accounting for the majority at 70 percent. Shippers are losing a lot of time, money and inventory due to unpredicted freight movement. We are constantly working towards empowering global leaders with predictive visibility and operational intelligence to achieve on-time deliveries at a reduced cost," said Kushal Nahata, CEO, FarEye.
