China Post Express Mail Service Bureau has selected Teradata's active data warehouse as the foundation for its new track-and-trace system.
The new system will help make 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.
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.
China Post began building its track-and-trace system in 1994 to help manage its rapid growth. Two systems-generations later, increasing customer requirements for high-quality services as well as the continued rapid expansion of its business drove EMS to seek an integrated system to improve its capabilities, better serve its major accounts and increase its market share.
