The last mile delivery is a crucial aspect of the logistics process, where a product is delivered to its final destination. The efficiency of this process can significantly impact customer satisfaction and brand loyalty. The focus on driver experience during the last mile delivery can improve efficiency, reduce the number of stolen and lost deliveries, and provide full transparency during the route. In this blog post, we will discuss how companies can enhance the driver experience during the last mile delivery process.
Full Transparency During the Route.
To ensure transparency during the route, companies can use GPS-enabled tracking devices in their delivery vehicles. These devices allow companies to track the location of their vehicles in real-time and provide customers with accurate delivery estimates. The tracking devices can also help the drivers navigate the best routes, avoid traffic congestion, and find the delivery locations easily.
"According to a report by Geotab, driver safety and satisfaction are linked, with 71% of drivers reporting that in-cab technology has a positive effect on their job satisfaction." - Colin Sutherland, Executive Vice President, Geotab
Live Fleets Tracking Feature.
Live fleets tracking feature is a valuable tool that enables companies to monitor their fleet in real-time. This feature allows companies to track the location of their vehicles, monitor driver behavior, and manage fuel consumption. Live fleet tracking feature also enables companies to identify any delays or issues during the delivery process, which can be addressed promptly to avoid delays or failed deliveries.
"In a study by Bringg, 76% of delivery drivers said that they find it stressful when customers are not available to receive their deliveries, and 64% said that they worry about being blamed for lost or damaged packages." - Bringg Delivery Driver Survey
A built-in scanner is an essential tool that can help drivers scan and track packages during the delivery process. With a built-in scanner, drivers can quickly scan packages and update the delivery status in real-time. This feature enables companies to keep track of their packages and ensure that they are delivered to the right location.
"Studies have shown that drivers who are provided with clear delivery instructions and support are able to make up to 30% more deliveries per hour." - Inbound Logistics Magazine
Smart Loading to Reduce the Number of Stolen and Lost Deliveries.
Smart loading is a feature that can reduce the number of stolen and lost deliveries. This feature involves using algorithms to determine the best way to load packages in a delivery vehicle to optimize space and minimize damage. By using smart loading, companies can ensure that all packages are secured and that the driver can access them easily during the delivery process.
"Providing real-time data on traffic and weather conditions can help drivers make better decisions, and it can also help reduce driver turnover, which can be as high as 40% in the logistics industry." - Fleet Management Weekly
In conclusion, focusing on driver experience during the last mile delivery process is critical to ensure a smooth and efficient delivery process. Providing full transparency during the route, supporting different types of vehicles, using a live fleet tracking feature, incorporating a built-in scanner, and implementing smart loading can significantly improve the driver experience and reduce the number of stolen and lost deliveries. Companies that invest in these technologies can gain a competitive edge by offering an exceptional customer experience and increasing brand loyalty.
