Do you spend hours each day manually planning your deliveries in preparation for tomorrow’s run?  You aren’t alone.  Have you ever wonder how to speed up your delivery planning process?

88% of businesses are still manually planning their deliveries.

Nearly every company that delivers to their customers has the same challenge day in and day out.  You may have hundreds, if not thousands of consignments to deliver to just as many customers.  You’d have a fleet of experienced, and not so experienced drivers that are familiar with the areas or routes and know where most of your customers are.  Some may even know when your customers need their deliveries.

But it’s never that simple is it?

If only it were Groundhog day

 

No single day is the same.

Which is why planning the next day crucial to getting everything delivered on time.  Anything left behind today has to be done tomorrow which has a knock on effect down the line.  So it makes sense to spend time planning the day thoroughly to give your drivers the best chance of getting everything done on time.

The looming problem is that you have many more important things that you should be working on. And you have a niggling feeling that you are spending too much time planning your deliveries, day in and day out.
