Customer Service Automation in logistics: Parcel tracking

Contact Centers in the logistics industry are flooded with standard requests. "Where is my package?" ranks #1 among the top customer service inquiries. Even though it is a simple question and the answer is just one API call away, traditional IVR systems strain the customers' patience: "Press 1 if you have a question about our services, press 2 if you [..] press 9 to talk to an agent" The result: Poor customer experience and high costs for manual incident handling.
