UPS Case Study

Q1. What are the inputs, processing, and outputs of UPS’s package tracking system?
Q2. What technologies are used by UPS? How are these technologies related to UPS’s business strategy?

Inputs: The inputs include package information, customer signature, pickup, delivery, time-card data, current location while en route, and billing and customer clearance documentation.

Processing: The data is sent to a central computer and stored for retrieval. Data is also reorganized so that it may be tracked by customer account, date, driver, and other criteria such as the consolidation of orders for efficient final delivery of packages.

A2: Since the 1980’s, UPS began improving their data networking applications.
UPS built up their IT network and database in order to collect and track over 200 data elements for every single package. Delivery Information Acquisition Devices (or DIAD) handheld devices are used by UPS truck drivers to download and upload all types of information, including signatures or updated routes, and is constantly fed and feeding a central UPS server. While in transit, routing information may be tracked by Customer Service representatives but also by Customers, thanks to frequent scanning of the package labels by bar code devices.
Also, through UPS.com, UPS can serve new B2B companies to use their tracking system with only a link. UPS also offers a set of transportation APIs called the “UPS Online Tools” that allow businesses to integrate…...
