The Importance of Managing Multi Pick up and Drop off Efficiently
By The Custella Team
As a thought experiment, imagine yourself as the owner of a renowned logistics company. Your company takes pride in being one of the most efficient providers in the market that you operate in. However, you also have competitors that are trying to surpass your reign and establish themselves as the superior one in the clutter. You realize that your business is suffering from inefficiency – multiple vehicles are picking up and dropping off goods that you know can easily be done by a single/lesser vehicle. What do you think is the best way to stay on top of the game in such a competitive race? For starters, making sure that your operations are carried out in the most efficient manner can help you to secure a stronghold in the arena. One of the top ways to ensure this is by using a delivery logistics software or transportation management software.
Transportations are expensive. When companies receive multiple orders, they send vehicles to get them delivered in different areas. Of course, the companies have to take care of the maintenance cost of each vehicle which can cost them a fortune. At the same time, sending multiple vehicles to pick and drop shipments in the same route does not only make it more expensive but time consuming too.
As mentioned above, using a delivery logistics software can enable businesses to make multi pick ups and drop offs that can cut cost and boost efficiency. With the aid of a smart software such as Custella, users can select a particular vehicle and truck driver to follow a route that facilitates a drop off after a pick up. As you can understand, it’s like hitting two birds with one stone! All that is needed to be done is to let the delivery logistics software analyze the routes, the location opening hours (e.g. customer’s depot/warehouse working hours) and the available drivers to operate your deliveries in the most efficient manner.
There are various ways of ensuring dominance in the marketplace. Having a delivery logistics software can definitely give you an edge in your service and help you to manage your cost effectively. Custella, for one, is ready to help you achieve that success.
