Signing on electronic devices is now common practice. Not only in the field of forwarding, but also at cash registers of supermarkets increasingly pads are available and make electronic signatures technically possible. But does this signature have the same legally binding effect as the old-fashioned signature on paper? And what does that mean for the electronic delivery receipt?
Currently the CEP provider DHL and Smart are launching a joint pilot project in selected German cities that allows Smart-owners to use their cars as a mobile delivery address for their parcels.
At the IAA Nutzfahrzeuge, the trade show for commercial vehicles, visitors were amazed, as this year the first delivery bicycles were exhibited at the fair. Robustly built – and even mobile with a good 200 pound load weight thanks to an electric motor – the cargo bikes are the climate-neutral trucks of the bicycle industry. Especially for the CEP industry the delivery bikes could be a real alternative for city traffic.
