8 Reasons To Start Using a Delivery Management Platform As Your Delivery Service

Introduction

Delivery management platforms help retailers and brands streamline their delivery operations by providing a single platform to manage logistics, deliveries and customer service. They allow users to easily plan routes, see live vehicle locations on a map and track shipment progress in real-time. In this blog post we explore why you should consider using one of these platforms:

Smart Route Planning

The first step in any supply chain is finding the most efficient route to get your product from point A to B.

Sometimes this is done manually using a road map or GPS system and sometimes it’s done automatically with software that calculates the best routes based on traffic patterns, weather conditions, and other factors.

While both are valid methods to use, there’s one big difference: humans are prone to making mistakes (even when they try not to) while computers don’t get tired or annoyed and therefore make better decisions about how best to transport your products across a large area.

Tracking and Visibility

A delivery management platform allows you to track your shipments in real time and gives you visibility into the status of your drivers and customers. This is especially important if you have several drivers and are shipping on a large scale.

You’ll be able to see which customer received what product, when it was delivered, where that customer lives, and if there were any issues with the delivery process. You can also see if a driver had an issue along their route or if anything went wrong with one of their vehicles (if they use more than one).

Real-time Analytics

  • Real-time analytics help you understand your data, identify trends, and make more informed decisions.

  • Receive alerts when something is wrong.

  • Real-time analytics can help you understand your customers.

  • Real-time analytics can help you understand your drivers' performance and driving patterns.

  • Real-time analytics can help you understand your routes, including the time it takes for a complete delivery cycle and whether there are any issues along the way that need to be addressed.

Auto-Dispatching

You can use a delivery management platform to automatically dispatch drivers based on their location, availability, skills and vehicle type. You can also set up the system to automatically dispatch drivers with more experience when they're needed.

Enhanced Security and Compliance

This can help you meet regulations and insurance requirements, as well as legal requirements. It can also ensure that your business is fully compliant with security requirements, which is an important factor for many customers.

Customizable Delivery Experience

  • Customizable Delivery Experience

Being able to customize your delivery experience allows you to better understand your customers and how they want their deliveries handled. With a delivery management platform, you can create different delivery options based on specific criteria, including:

  • Time of day

  • Location of pick-up/drop-off

  • Product type

  • Weight/size of order

Advanced Customer Communication Features

With a delivery management platform, you have the ability to communicate with customers in a number of ways. This can be done through email, SMS messages and even live chat. The benefit is that you don’t need to hire additional staff members for this purpose. The platform is designed to help make these communications easier than ever before so that you can focus on other parts of your business instead of worrying about communicating with customers yourself!

Compare Rates Across Carriers

When you use a delivery management platform, it's easy to compare rates across carriers. That means that you can use the same platform for all of your deliveries, no matter where they're going or who is picking them up. This makes managing your logistics much easier because everything is in one place, and it also allows you to compare rates across different carriers.

In addition to being able to easily compare rates across carriers, using a delivery management platform makes it easy for businesses big and small to compare rates across different delivery services as well as different delivery times and methods of transportation (such as ground vs air).

Using a delivery management platform can help you streamline your delivery service.

A delivery management platform is a tool that allows you to manage your delivery service. It’s not just for pizza chains (though Domino’s did announce their own delivery management platform in May). The platform can be used by any business that delivers goods or services and it gives them the tools they need to streamline their operation, including:

  • Scheduling appointments with customers, who can schedule deliveries through the platform as well.

  • Tracking the location of drivers and packages in real time so you always know who has what and where it is at any given moment.

  • Answering customer inquiries quickly through messaging on the app, which means less time spent on hold over the phone or via email when people have questions about their orders or need help tracking down an order they placed but never received.

Conclusion

There are many benefits to using a delivery management platform to help you streamline your delivery service. With one platform, you can compare rates across carriers, get real-time analytics on how each route is performing and even track drivers in real time as they make deliveries. This ensures that every driver gets optimal performance while also making it easy for customers to see where their package is at any given moment. Plus, with customizable features like this, there’s no reason not to give it a try!
