Surprisingly in England, there are still some courier companies who are skeptical about adapting the latest technology for growth. Yet, by using what is at your disposal right now (and there is a lot), your courier company can increase its sales, manage clients, drivers, and vehicles with ease. We are also talking about efficient resource use, as resource allocation is a crucial part for growing your courier business.
Are you curious about how to achieve a great number of orders and skyrocket all of them? Today’s article will share some insights that can lead you to solutions you are looking for.
Courier Drivers — Customer Service Representatives
Courier business is highly dependent upon its drivers, as they are the ones who come in contact with customers. In fact, your fleet of drivers aren’t drivers in a normal sense like other industries, as they are also customer service representatives. This means they can affect your business both good and bad, depending on the options they have and training they’ve received. If you are owner-driver, then, you already know the importance of providing great customer service (as your courier business success depends on it).
When you want to manage your fleet more efficiently, the solution to that is very simple. Nowadays, the most successful courier companies, be it industry giants or other successful UK courier companies already use technology and Courier software which eases workload within the company, as well as outside of it.
When you want to visualize your driver’s activities in real time, then, you certainly need a GPS tracking. Drivers sometimes take unauthorized stops, while other times it simply takes them more time to reach a specific location.
GPS tracking ensures deliveries are delivered to customers in a timely manner, improve driver safety, and even allow you to check the fuel usage of each driver.
The Best Routes
Sometimes delays occur due to unpredictable factors. That is why you need to plan your drivers’ routes. Can you respond with yes to all of these questions?
- Do you provide your drivers with optimized and 100% accurate routes?
- Can you inform your drivers about eventual route changes?
- Can you choose between drivers who are responsible for specific deliveries?
