A World's First
by Florian Poulin
Zyllem had a hand in designing the world’s first standard, TR46:2016 for Last Mile Delivery – eCommerce Data Interchange. TR46 is a guideline for companies to adopt a common dataset for the order fulfillment process between e-commerce businesses and logistics service providers. It is a Singapore government initiative to boost logistics efficiency and customer experience. During its testing stage partaken by several local companies, it proved to lower delivery errors by up to 50% and reduce integration costs by up to 70%.* TR46 is aligned with Singapore’s move towards building a Smart Nation, and is a cross-sectoral effort among the Singapore Manufacturing Federation-Standards Development Organisation, Info-communications Media Development Authority of Singapore (IMDA), and SPRING Singapore. Zyllem aims to further contribute to initiatives that help transform businesses in Singapore and the growth in digital economy.
