Tech Catalyst for Logistics

Logistics is reshaping the e-commerce market of the country. The trends of the market are changing which may help web based businesses grow more reasonable in future.

In todays time all the e-commerce players are manufacturing logistics, payments, and wallet capacity internally.

There were problems with the e-commerce organizations earlier like deliveries with loaded stuff, sometimes lost/wrong and postponed shipments too.

With time, the technology has moved to another level and the demands of the market have also been increased. When demand for the products and services increase, the requirement and expectation of perfect delivery also increases. And this is the biggest challenge for the industry right now.

There is mobility which can help LSPs to overcome challenges:

  1. Mobile warehouse management solutions

The primary aim must be to know your warehouse inside out. With a mobile warehouse management app connected to all your assets, you can get complete visibility and transparency in your warehouse, as it gives you the overview of the entire warehouse on a single screen.

Also, it helps you identify and ship packages in an efficient and streamlined manner, promising the optimized resource utilization.

  1. Doorstep delivery mobile solutions

Speed is one the most important factors in doorstep pick-up and delivery process. A customized door step delivery mobile app for your business lets you speed up your pickup and delivery services.

Using a mobile app, your employees can scan the product, create a label, enter delivery details and create an invoice; all at the customer doorstep. So, the shipment can be directly transferred to the export facility, resulting in the reduced time to deliver, well-optimized warehouse space and enhanced customer service.

 

  1. Mobile asset tracking solutions

Delivering products to your customers on time is the key to success in your business.

You can keep track of your shipments with extra high precision using an asset tracking mobile app with the help of geo-positioning and identification technology.

Knowing the exact status of each and every shipment will help you keep deliveries on schedule, streamline the work process, optimize resource utilization, reduce costs and adhere to service level agreements.

  1. Mobile fleet management solutions

A fleet management mobile app can give you the details of all your drivers, vehicles, and assets inside the vehicles.

It helps you with the delivery schedules of all the vehicles and also facilitates route planning, log times of drivers and deviations.

These things will improve driver’s efficiency and you can track driver performance to identify and retain the good ones.

Other benefits include better fleet management and fuel and fleet costs management.

  1. Customer servicing solutions

Meeting the needs of customers will increase customer satisfaction, which will ultimately boost their loyalty towards you.

A tailor-made customer service mobile app for your business will enable your customers to do the mobile bookings for door delivery, track the movement of your shipment and report a complaint. You can also get customer feedback through your mobile app which you can use to address complaints and serve your customers better than ever.
