Intra City Courier Service 

Project Domain / Category

Mobile Application (Android)

Abstract / Introduction

Often, we must send parcels/letters within city. It is a hectic process to go to the post office/courier center for shipment of parcels/letters. We can solve this issue by developing an android app through which user can send his/her parcels picked up from his/her doorstep and delivered at his/her desired destination.

User will enter pick up and destination location manually or by using Google maps along with the parcel and receiver details. Courier Company will confirm the order request of the user and assign a courier representative to user. The user will get push notification on his mobile upon the confirmation of his order request. The courier representative will arrive at the users pick up location (with the help of Google map direction), collect parcel and courier charges and will deliver the courier at the destination. Users can also track the real time status of his parcel on google maps.
