Hermes acquires 600 Belgravium handheld terminals

Hermes, one of Britain’s leading home delivery companies, has acquired 600 Belgravium Atlanta 5000 handheld computers for use in its trunking and radial distribution network.

The company claims to be the biggest in its field to use self-employed lifestyle couriers, of which it has more than 7,500, to handle its final deliveries, and it is using the new terminals to streamline deliveries to these individuals.

Specifically Hermes decided to upgrade the barcode technologies used in its fixed depot and hub locations and its radial van fleet. The fundamental object was to provide state-of-the-art visibility of shipment information between Hermes and their users.

After evaluating several major mobile computer solutions, the company made the decision to stay with its existing supplier, Belgravium. The company says features of the Atlanta range that appealed include its well balanced, lightweight design and ability to survive the rigours of the operation.

Hermes and its predecessor Parcelnet have been using Belgravium equipment since the late 1980s.
