Testing services for logistics companies
For today’s logistics services, it is essential to deliver the shipment to the right location at the right time as efficiently as possible. There is a massive amount of service logic built behind the entire logistics chain, hidden from the end customer. Thorough testing ensures that the chain actually works and provides a smooth experience for the end customer.
Logistics is a wide business domain with a wealth of different operators and applications. Internal business tools, consumer applications and the underlying enterprise resource planning systems are all critical for ensuring delivery chain efficiency. Today, the development efforts focus on efficiency: removing errors, delays and friction points from the process.
In the consumer-facing business, self-service has become more and more important. While the consumer who picks up a package from an automated system only sees a simple interface, there is a massive amount of service logic and dependencies under the hood. It is up to thorough testing to anticipate all potential problems, errors and exception cases in advance.

How logistics benefits from testing
Professional software testing helps identify errors and potential bottlenecks early on in the development process. This helps in developing a reliable system where shipments move quickly and efficiently.
Both consumers and businesses appreciate speed and ease-of-use in logistics services. Self-service systems that are reliable and easy to use improve customer experience, reduce the need for customer support and minimize bad publicity.
Technology that just works
Logistics systems are a combination of software, connected devices and sensors and traditional hardware and machinery. Testing aims to ensure that all pieces in the puzzle fit together perfectly.
