  • Romania’s largest courier company deploys Honeywell CT60 and EDA51 mobile computers in response to growing demand for home delivery in Romania
  • Android-based rugged computers and cloud-based performance software will enable FAN Courier to maximize speed, security and accuracy of logistics; explore new, diversified future service offerings

BUCHAREST, Romania, 22 February 2021 – As more people turn to online shopping, logistics services across Romania are facing unprecedented demand. In response, FAN Courier, Romania’s largest courier company, has deployed more than 5,000 rugged mobile computers from global technology company Honeywell (NYSE:HON) to its delivery drivers and warehouse operators across the country, as part of an ongoing project to upgrade its operations with latest digital technologies.

Supporting the company’s digitalization investment roadmap, FAN Courier is also using Honeywell’s Operational Intelligence Professional software, a centralized cloud-based platform that enables it to keep track of its new devices, manage their operational status and reduce unplanned downtime to give customers an even more trusted, reliable service.

The new devices combine the ruggedness of traditional personal mobile computers with a design similar to personal mobile phones, so new drivers can train and on-board faster.

FAN Courier appointed Total Technologies to supply the solutions, extending the two companies’ 14-year history of collaboration. FAN Courier evaluated three classes of rugged device from four manufacturers, before selecting the Honeywell – Total Technologies package to provide its drivers with maximum uptime and productivity in the field.

Commenting on the investment, Daniela Catrinoiu, Chief Information Officer at FAN Courier, said: “During these unprecedented and challenging times, FAN Courier is harnessing the very latest technology to keep Romania’s commerce moving. We have a long-standing partnership with Honeywell and Total Technologies on innovation that helps us deliver the world class service our customers expect. Through this latest investment we can now also explore the potential to provide customers with additional services in the future, to help make their daily lives even easier.”

In addition, FAN Courier has also deployed Honeywell’s ScanPal EDA51 mobile computers for its warehouse personnel to drive productivity and accuracy of warehouse operations. Like the CT60 devices, Honeywell EDA51 devices run on the Android operating system and are also being centralized and managed using Honeywell’s Operational Intelligence platform.

“Through this investment in our latest mobile computers and Operational Intelligence software, FAN Courier is showing that it is prepared to react fast and push the boundaries when it comes to technology, to help its customers adjust to this rapidly changing environment,” added Ronald Binkofski, president Central and Eastern Europe, Honeywell. “FAN Courier’s investment in latest innovation from Honeywell reflects how digital transformation can unlock new value for the logistics sector, and even has the potential to create new diversification opportunities and exciting additional revenue streams for companies in the sector.”

The CT60 is built on Honeywell’s Mobility Edge platform, a unified hardware and software architecture with an integrated software toolset that extends asset life, accelerates deployment and simplifies management of mobility solutions. The only platform that guarantees support through Android R, Mobility Edge enables IT departments to reuse their investment in solution development and software certification across multiple computer form factors.

FAN Courier has relied on Honeywell technologies across its operations for more than a decade. Alongside mobile computing, FAN Courier also uses Honeywell’s mobile printing systems for receipt printing, and its voice solutions to support hands-free operations across its logistics teams.
