USPS orders 300,00 mobile delivery devices from Zebra Technologies
Zebra Technologies has won a major order from the US Postal Service for 300,000 TC77 touch computers to help the postal operator optimize its delivery network with real-time visibility for letter carriers.
The technology company said USPS has awarded it an Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract to supply TC77 touch computers to scan, track and trace packages across its carrier network. The value of the contract was not disclosed.
The USPS will start deploying 300,000 TC77 mobile devices as its next-generation Mobile Delivery Device in the first half of 2020.
Zebra said its Android-based TC77 mobile computers will help the USPS optimize operations in the on-demand economy while providing customers with the speed, accuracy and real-time tracking they expect.
The ultra-rugged TC77 features Zebra’s Mobility DNA suite of software tools that increase worker productivity, simplify management and strengthen the security of Zebra’s Android-based, enterprise-class computers. Zebra will also provide accessories, software, help desk support, repairs, maintenance, and software development.
"We are honored to work with the world's largest postal service and are excited to provide our innovative mobile technology, services and support to the USPS and its customers,” said Anders Gustafsson, CEO, Zebra Technologies. “We look forward to building on our relationship with the USPS and providing a performance edge to its letter carriers.”
