Shree Maruti to take a giant leap towards becoming paperless
The company is discontinuing the hardcopy of consignment notes for the retail booking from April 1, the move is expected to save 8,000 kg of paper
Leading courier and logistics company Shree Maruti Courier Services Pvt Ltd has taken up a digital transformation journey in an endeavor to deliver faster, safer, and more efficient services to its customers. With an aim to 'Save Papers to Save Environment' vision, the company is bringing to an end the hardcopy of consignment notes (CNs) for the retail booking from April 01, 2022.
The retail customers will now get copies of CNs in digitized form on the platforms like Whatsapp and Email. With this initiative, the company will save around 8,000 kg paper and a large number of trees. Shree Maruti has planned a series of initiatives to discontinue the use of papers and opt for more digital solutions in the coming years.
Speaking on the initiative, Ajay Mokariya, Managing Director, Shree Maruti Courier Services Pvt Ltd said, "As a company, we are focused on making our customers' life easy with the adoption of environment-friendly and tech-enabled solutions. Reducing your reliance on paper allows you to create a more sustainable business. We believe Digital Transformation presents plenty of opportunities and has enormous potential for our industry. Our next phase of digitalization is about accelerating adoption of new-age technologies across the business to achieve enhanced speed, efficiency, and flexibility to keep pace with today's demands."
Shree Maruti has developed a state-of-the-art IT platform that helps it deliver a great customer experience at every touchpoint. In the second phase, the company will stop using/minimizing physical Delivery Run Sheet (DRS) copies. The last mile deliveries will be done through Digital Delivery i.e., it will perform digital deliveries through MOB. This can be treated as Digital Delivery System (DDS). In the coming days, Shree Maruti is planning to minimize the usage of hard copies of Consignment Notes in credit booking and also hard copies of monthly invoices in credit booking.
"With the paperless initiative, we are aiming to achieve 100% digitization in our retail and corporate. The strategy aims to identify all the primary manual processes that require the usage of paper and render them 100% digital", Mokariya added.
In a move towards sustainability, the company had launched an eco-friendly delivery service using Electric two-wheelers in five cities in India last year. With this, it became the first company in the courier and logistic sector to initiate a novel concept of creating a green energy supply chain. It is planning to add more E-vehicles in its fleet in metros and major megacities to reduce the fuel cost significantly, contribute to reducing carbon footprints, and provide competitive services compare to the traditional delivery tools.
