Creating route plans that optimize and balance delivery profitability and customer service is a challenge. Good plans must take into consideration more than what can fit into a truck’s time window, open/close time, re-loads, and equipment restrictions.
Barcoding provides fleet management software solutions that solve these challenges and more by partnering with the leader in the industry, Descartes.
Using advanced industry algorithms and custom routing passes, you can create multiple intelligent route plans to maximize investment in your fleet. Our solutions reduce distribution costs and fleet miles, increase resource usage, accommodate for shifting customer demands, decrease routing time, and set driver standards. In addition, Barcoding’s fleet management applications can produce a number of reports to make transportation information available to you quickly and easily.

COVID-19 has caused widespread disruption for businesses around the world. How can we prevent our supply chains from freezing up under extreme amounts of pressure? The shipping process and final-mile shipping in particular are a potential pressure point, so being flexible and finding new work-arounds is essential. Keep reading for some strategies from Inbound Logistics to minimize issues with shipping.
Normally, e-commerce sales make up 11% of retail sales. Now, under quarantine and amidst store closures, online shopping is skyrocketing.
Final-mile delivery is particularly impacted, as it’s a labor-intensive process even under normal conditions. Additionally, new types of goods are being shipped, which causes a costly issue for delivery vehicles on the local level that are restricted to regulatory constraints on volume of goods and time on the road.
By optimizing the packaging of each item, you can reduce the strain on delivery vehicles. For example, try to consolidate shipments and improve the packing and cube utilization of packing. Another great strategy is to aim to keep as many sales as possible “buy online/pick up in store” (BOPIS) and avoid having to facilitate shipping altogether.
With health and safety concerns, limiting face-to-face interaction is a must. More businesses are turning to contactless delivery, so that shoppers have the option to receive their items without direct contact.
Approximately 36% of Americans have had a package stolen from outside their home. Consider ways that unattended packages can be tracked, such as email notifications upon delivery. This way, the customer has peace of mind that they can pick up their purchase immediately and limit the window of opportunity for theft.
