End-to-end Transit Time Measurements by Spectos

Increasing competition in the postal industry is causing more and more quality awareness, both among customers and postal service providers themselves. Proof of the actual quality of service is not only demanded by customers, but is also necessary for public tenders. For even more precise and comprehensive insights into data and processes, innovative RFID technologies offer another option for collecting so-called “end-to-end” data for transit time measurements from postal service providers.

How it works

End-to-end measurements with Spectos: explained in detail

Delivery times in the postal industry are often measured with so-called “test letters”, which are sent to participants (recipients) as well as returned to us by participants (senders). Delivery times are then measured using special surveys. The results of such transit time measurements can be compared with the company’s own KPIs, benchmarking values and other fixed analyses. In the Spectos RTPMTM Suite, a tailor-made Post & Logistics Cockpit is developed for each customer, on which the results of the transit time measurements can be viewed at any time in real-time.

For each transit time measurement in the postal industry, participants are acquired through our own support center, which provides the largest proportion of results for the measurements. We always invest in the quality of our own service center, as well as in new, modern survey methods. For example, all participants will have access to a centralized platform called Mailagenten developed by Spectos. In addition, all participants have the opportunity to report their results via multi-channel solutions. Even more precise and comprehensive insights into the quality of services are provided by our innovative RFID and Live Tracker technologies for postal services and logistics.

From the collected data, our experts create detailed charts and graphs based on response technology as well as automatic analyses according to internal company specifications. In addition, we prepare customized reports for government agencies and public tenders. These are useful for illustrating delivery times in team or customer meetings to demonstrate your own postal delivery quality and service quality.
