Tokyo (Japan), 22 November 2022 – Toyota Mobility Parts, wholesaler of automobile-related parts and accessories, implements ZetesChronos proof of delivery solution to increase the efficiency of their work environment by unifying the different systems and labels from the different providers. The solution will also overcome driver shortages and favour environmental conservation.
Toyota Mobility Parts Corporation has been established through the merger of 33 nationwide Toyota parts dealers and Tacti Co. Ltd. The company is a member of the Toyota Group and supports the automobile and local communities by planning, selling, and delivering repair parts, and supplies. Since June 2020, they have been working with Daihatsu Motor and Subaru on joint deliveries of maintenance parts and supplies.
Joint delivery for environmental awareness
Currently, the logistics’ world is facing issues such as driver shortages and environmental protection measures. In order to overcome these challenges, several logistics companies decided to collaborate to optimise the loading and transportation of their products. However, a major challenge to overcome was that the systems labels and on-site operations used by each company differed, impeding reliable visual inspection and guaranteed delivery accuracy. This necessitated the unification of the various delivery management systems.
Addressing TMP’s needs required a careful understanding of processes and workflows. ‘Zetes and Panasonic didn’t only listen to our needs but actually came to our warehouse for a full assessment. Based on their analysis, they made a proposal that encompassed our requirements and objectives ”, adds Genki Endo, Joint Logistics Promotion Officer at Toyota Mobility Parts.

Real-time visibility on deliveries
ZetesChronos is an electronic proof of delivery software which helps control and improve your collection, delivery, and related management processes. The solution combined with rugged handheld Panasonic Toughbook FZ-N1 will enable Toyota Mobility Parts (TMP) to link the operation manager’s computer and the driver’s terminal through a cloud server.
