Usage of electronic signatures in logistical processes

Benefits of the usage of electronic signatures in the logistics industry

Dedicated mainly to storage, transport, distribution, inventory, packaging etc., the logistics industry is comprised of a large number of processes, which oftentimes are still being carried out in the same way as decades ago. Electronic signatures however, are able to streamline those processes and provide a solution that allows for paperwork being processed entirely online, without hassles and delays, resulting in a reduction of costs, a higher satisfaction of the involved parties as well as an increased efficiency in daily operations.

Introducing electronic signatures in the processes of orders and shipments leads to reduced handling times and a faster resolution of issues produced during those processes, while also providing extra security in legal terms. The Biometric Signature on tablet is capable of capturing the electronic signature’s biometric data, such as stroke pressure, speed, or inclination – parameters, which can uniquely identify the signer. 

While the biometric signature is a valuable asset for any logistics company, it is not the only type of digital signature that can be of great use in this industry. Signing delivery notes and invoices as well as other paperwork with the Centralized Signature, the Remote Signature (via smartphone), or the Stamper, reduces not only costs but also the use of paper drastically while allowing for the centralization of information in a more efficient and effective manner.
