Introduction

Launch of a truck driver app

Logistics is determined by a large number of economic, social, technological and political influencing factors and trends. These developments influence the conditions under which logistics services are provided. Thus, in an ever more complex world, the demands on logistics service providers are increasing. To meet these demands, a German freight forwarder and logistics service provider wants to improve the tracking of its shipments and communication with its truck drivers. To this end, an app is to be developed via which tours can be processed step by step, including a chat function and document upload (delivery bills).

  • Deriving user journeys from the perspective of the different users

  • Creation of training materials (print & video) as well as planning and orchestration of rollouts

Our added value
