Washington, April 20 : Accellion, a US based company have introduced a cost-efficient and environmentally friendly alternative to conventional shipping by developing a digital courier service, which can transfer digital information in a matter of seconds through email.
According to a report by ENN (Environmental News Network), the service, known as the Accellion Green Digital Logistics Solution, eliminates the traditional costs, time delays, security issues, and environmental concerns associated with physical delivery.
Accellion Green is an extension of Accellion's secure file transfer technology.
Recipients of this service receive an email containing a secure 'Green link', which they click to download the digital information.
All digital information sent via Accellion Green is tracked and secured, providing organizations with an audit trail for the transfer of all digital files. It also offers the same ease of use as email, which ensures high adoption rates.
This service is specifically designed for organizations that currently use traditional overnight courier vendors to ship time-sensitive information.
It offers digital delivery at digital speeds, at a fraction of the cost of traditional overnight courier services without the security concerns of lost disks and lost packages.
The elimination of courier and overnight shipping services generates considerable corporate savings, both financial as well as environmental through lower CO2 emissions as well.
The service continuously tracks the digital delivery of information and the related pounds of CO2 saved.
The information is displayed via a corporate dashboard to alert users to the positive impact they are having on the environment by simply choosing to send information through Accellion Green instead of a traditional physical delivery service.
According to Yorgen Edholm, president and CEO of Accellion, "Accellion Green is a shipping solution that uses no trucks or airplanes and it dumps no CO2 in the stratosphere far away from any carbon sink."
"An Accellion Green delivery takes seconds or minutes compared to overnight, our tracking is second to none, and we will never add fuel surcharges," he added.
