Mainfreight equipping employees with Zebra mobile devices


Global logistics provider, Mainfreight is deploying next generation TC75 mobile computing devices from Zebra Technologies to empower its employees with insights on the go.

The partnership will see Mainfreight provide 1500 of the mobile devices to employees across Australia and New Zealand.

The provision of Zebra’s devices is part of an investment of US$3 million by Mainfreight and will be rolled out across Australia and New Zealand by the end of this year, enhancing Mainfreight’s operational efficiency in the processing, delivery and collection cycle, and improving the overall customer experience.

The new TC75 is Mainfreight’s fourth refresh, since the company began using Symbol in 1991, with the high-performance, data capture solution enabling the company to scan barcodes, even if labels are damaged, dirty or poorly printed.

The new scanners also capture high quality photographs of merchandise in any environment and allow customers to sign using gloved hands, an optional stylus or bare fingers, making it an ideal solution for crisp signature capture.

“We are proud to be the first supply chain and logistics provider to roll out this next generation mobile solution in ANZ,” said Kevin Drinkwater, Mainfreight’s group IT manager.

“Zebra’s next generation TC75 mobile computer is a significant step up on our existing equipment, and puts us and beyond our competitor’s capabilities. It will also enable us to introduce future functionality that is well beyond what we could deliver today.”

David Arkles, General Manager, Zebra Technologies said the next generation TC75 mobile computers are designed to “help businesses accelerate the adoption of their mobility solutions, improve productivity and operational agility and unlock true enterprise asset intelligence.”
