What do you like about swissconnect?
I am motivated by getting involved in swissconnect’s vision. We solve transport problems for customers relating to laboratory, pharma, spare parts and document shipping. What sets us apart from other courier services is that we do not use a set mode of transport. We use the most suitable means of transport (bike, train, car, etc.), reach the destination before others and do good for the environment.
For me as a father, a good work-life balance is really important. The central location at Lucerne station and the possibility of working part time means I can achieve this. swissconnect has also supported me with further training (CAS “DevOps Leadership and Agile Methods”), which is great. I can use what I’ve learned on a daily basis, use the latest web developments and continuously modernise the logistics software.
How long has swissconnect logistics software existed?
The first company-developed logistics software was commissioned in 2001. That was an absolutely pioneering achievement! This first version recorded and processed requests for national express deliveries centrally. The multimodal courier platform has facilitated the combination of bike couriers and trains for over 20 years. The knowledge acquired is used in subsequent software versions. The software was completely modernised in 2013. At the same time, the courier network was steadily expanded to around 70 bike and car couriers throughout Switzerland, which are connected to the software and to 9 train companies (SBB, BLS, RhB, etc).
