The Problem

Our client needs 2,384 Parcels to be delivered/collected in one day within the Sydney metro region with 60 internal drivers on hand. Also relying on 3rd party operators to provide support.

The Challenge

Deliver all parcels for the minimum cost.

The Outcome

GoLoop produces a much more efficient set of driver manifests that results in significant savings to our client.

A saving of $4.66 per parcel =>


$11,110 per day

The Reason

Our clients’ drivers are each allocated an average of 34.4 parcels and deliver 3 parcels per hour. GoLoop allocated an average of 42 parcels per driver and ensures drivers deliver an average of 3.6 parcels per hour.

These efficiencies are created by 2 aspects of the model:

  • More efficient delivery manifests
  • Better allocation of consignments to drivers

GoLoop can consistently produce results of between 
50% and 100% of the results above on a daily basis.
