China Post Express Mail Service Bureau selected Teradata’s active data warehouse as the foundation for its new track-and-trace system.
Teradata, a division of Dayton, Oh-based NCR Corp., made the announcement Aug. 22.
Teredata said the new system will help make Bejing, China-based China Post competitive with the world’s leading express delivery companies in terms of quality of service and core business competencies. It will also strengthen brand image and promote business development for the organization.
The first phase of the new system will test-run this month. The nationwide pilot operation and systematic training will be completed in three phases from October to the end of December.
The new system not only plays an effective monitoring and supervision role of the production processes, but it also helps standardize internal operation processes. More importantly, the new near real-time system enables tactical and strategic queries as well as decision analyses that help EMS generate value from information.
EMS is China’s largest provider of express mail and courier service. It handles approximately 800,000 pieces of mail per day while servicing more than 200 countries and regions as well as 2,000 cities within China.
