'Amazon Relay' is the name of a new app from the ecommerce giant that aims to simplify and speed up the check-in process for truck drivers who are transporting cargo.
With the app for Apple and Android devices, communication is streamlined between drivers and Amazon Fulfillment and Sort Centers. Drivers are able to pre-register their loads and get gate passes right on their mobile device, which can be used to quickly check in and help them advance to a dedicated Relay lane and continue their journey.
While there have been many innovations introduced to better service businesses and the end consumer on ecommerce transactions, Amazon's Relay addresses an equally important part of the supply chain that will ultimately help consumers receive their orders at an accelerated rate.
