٣١ يوليو ، ٢٠٢٣

Introduction & Context

In today's digital era, businesses are constantly seeking innovative ways to enhance customer experience and streamline their operations. This case study presents the success story of a logistics company that revolutionized its customer service by implementing a chatbot. By leveraging artificial intelligence, the company achieved significant improvements in customer satisfaction, operational efficiency, and overall business performance.

It is a logistics company that enables its partners to deliver products to their customers through a process that guarantees the highest standards of safety and efficiency. The previous delivery process was through phone calls and SMSs from different phone numbers, which led to users' dissatisfaction in some cases, a lack of privacy for both users and delivering agents, and a huge workload on the customer service employees, leading to some administrative challenges.

Chatbot Development

The company collaborated with arabot to develop a chatbot using arabot platform capabilities and webhooks that were integrated with their backend system to handle the transactional services, tracking the shipment, updating users' location, delivery/cancellation/postponing deliveries notification using outbound messages using WhatsApp, and live agent support.

Functionality and Features

The chatbot is equipped with the following features:

  • Tracking Shipment: End users can check their shipment's status, verified by their phone numbers as well as the shipment number.
  • Update Location: The chatbot sends outbound messages via WhatsApp when there is a need to update the user's location (either by sharing a new location or updating the existing one).
  • Shipments Transactions: The chatbot sends outbound messages via WhatsApp to confirm any change in the shipment status (on the way, canceled, rescheduled, or delivered).
  • Live Agent: A live session between the user and the delivery agent will be opened through the chatbot (if needed) when the agent is on his way to deliver the shipment.

Implementation and Integration:

  • The chatbot is live on WhatsApp. It underwent rigorous testing and optimization to ensure accurate understanding and response to users' needs. The integration with backend systems allowed for real-time synchronization of appointment data.

Overall Impact:

  • Enhanced User Satisfaction
  • The chatbot significantly increased user satisfaction, enabling them to know about their shipment statuses 24/7 at a click of a button. The importance of WhatsApp in this era and its familiarity with users improved accessibility and engagement.
  • Solving Privacy Possible Violations
  • The chatbot implementation solved the possibility of any privacy possible violation by using one verified WhatsApp number as the only channel of communication between the users and the delivery agents, which increased the users' comfort when they need a shipment to be delivered.
  • Increased Operational Efficiency
  • The automation of shipment tracking and transactions reduced the administrative workload, enabling the employees to focus on more complex tasks to enhance the delivery process.


By implementing the chatbot, the company achieved remarkable success in transforming its customer service operations. The innovative solution enabled faster response times, improved customer satisfaction, and increased operational efficiency. This success story serves as an inspiration for other companies seeking to leverage chatbot technology to enhance their customer experience and drive business growth in the logistics industry and beyond.
