NDR calling with Futwork

Author : Harsha Rampal | Published On : 02 Apr 2021

The term, Non-Delivery Return(NDR) is commonly used in the shipping and logistics sector. A Non-Delivery Report or NDR is a receipt that shows you the orders which could not be delivered and the reason for their non-delivery.

Depending on the logistics provider the courier partner does 2–3 reattempts in order to deliver the package to the end consumer. During this time if the package is still marked as undelivered due to specific reasons an automated SMS or IVR call is sent to the buyer asking them their response regarding the undelivered order.

The entire process is time-consuming and not cost-effective for the companies. And as most packages are on COD, in most cases the packages are returned to origin thereby costing the companies money and making losses. In order to close the loop, save time and optimize their operational process Pickrr combined forces with Futwork.
