Purpose of your product
Customer Order Fulfillment makes things happen. We make sure that, for example, the fresh fish ordered by your preferred restaurant is being picked in a safe and efficient manner, that the shipping is done in a fast and cost-efficient way and that it is delivered right when our customers need it.
In this landscape, M.Transport handles the actual delivery process. M.Transport is the transport management solution of choice for the Metro countries.
It encompasses two products that help with the planning and execution of the deliveries. On one side, planning of the trips is done using advanced algorithms and maps data to optimize routes and maximize feet usage.
On the other hand, a mobile application supports drivers in their delivery process; from tracking the deliveries, managing returns, payments, and other important processes.
The apps are developed with modern technologies, Java and / or Scala in the backend, React in frontend, continuous delivery by awesome and fun teams.
The 2 products in this solution are data and user centered and benefit from high management focus.
