If you are into the logistics business, then Proof of Delivery becomes a crucial part of the whole delivery system. POD is a significant part of the delivery process as it establishes that the package has been delivered to the customer and acts like a receipt that proves that the delivery has been made.

Proof of Delivery consists of a written acknowledgment of having received the order of a specific amount of money on a specific date and time, the name of the person who has received the product, and other shipping details. They are basically an official document where the customer confirms the receipt of the order or parcel.

Good communication is essential for the success of the business. And in the logistics industry, customers expect to know where their orders are. With emerging technologies and innovations, we at Zeo Route tried to enhance the old methodology of the PODs. We came up with the E-PODs or the Electronic Proof of Delivery in our app. An E-POD is a digital format of a traditional paper delivery order or delivery note. They present an efficient, modern approach to distribution that allows transport companies to provide better customer service throughout the delivery process.
