Ways To Set Up A Business For Home Deliveries

by Apr 28, 2020INFORMATION

With the pandemic impacting lives and businesses worldwide, the governments across the globe have encouraged the ideology of social distancing through following norms like getting essentials delivered to the doorstep of households among others.

However, easier said than done, it can be a logistics and supply-chain nightmare when the provider, supplier and deliverer aren’t connected through synchronised operation systems.

With businesses like bars, cafes and other small players now compelled to innovate on a rapid pace, gearing up and floating the option of home delivery is a more of a necessity rather than a feasible option to keep the bottom line strong and churning.

Since all these businesses rely on active customer base and since the customer can’t visit the store anymore, such businesses have to invest in a remote management system to keep operations efficient through orchestrated logistics and supply-chains.

Following are a few pointers that businesses need to take into consideration for home deliveries.

  • Matching Delivery & Dispatch To Driver Availability.

Setting up an IoT solution is one of the simplest ways to establish local delivery services and fulfil orders online as they arrive. The job management solution can be accessed through desktop or a mobile application that aids in assigning tasks and tracking vehicles and drivers. With the right solution, you can get an idea of the driver’s exact location and it also helps in understanding which vehicle and the corresponding operator is right for the job generated.

Once the task is allocated to the driver, the task management system can tell you both about the estimated delivery time, progression of the task and exact driver location in real-time. Upon task fulfilment, the driver can be allocated to another variant in the pipeline depending on the location and job availability.

  • Automating Fleet Tracking & Management

Fleet tracking forms the core of any business that is employed directly or dependent on the transport & logistics industry. Investing in a solution that understands the challenges like compliance and safety is pertinent for the business to operate efficiently. When you are running an e-commerce or a retail-centric business, understanding the importance of knowing where your assets are, how they are being engaged and how delivery and dispatch is being orchestrated plays a pivotal role in moving the supply chain forward.

Investing in a fleet management system helps with simplifying challenges and automate processes like real-time vehicle tracking, field job management, accurate asset tracking and better driver communication.

  • Investing In Digitised Inventory Management

Maintaining and tracking inventory can help in avoiding a shortage of assets to eliminate or reduce downtime. A business can keep the stock up-to-date using a digitised inventory system. By employing such a solution, it is possible to run operations efficiently and automate the delivery and dispatch effortlessly.
