If your core business offering is doorstep delivery of products and services, then your business model would revolve around the efficiency of your delivery executives. So, you have to find new ways to increase their efficiency, in order to escalate business gains. Well, there are many employee tracking tools available today, but do they perform the last mile job admirably well?

The answer would be “No”. Most of the employee tracking tools are meant for stationary, office-only employees, and do not count the scenarios that may arise in the field. There are many grey areas left by the traditional employee tracking tools. You are never too sure about the delivery executive’s exact (real-time) location or the distance the employee has to traverse to drop an order. Lack of such insights can have a huge impact on your business. How? Well, read on and you would understand.

As a first, without the real-time knowledge of the delivery executive’s location, you cannot effectively schedule the upcoming deliveries. There are many instances when the delivery professionals have to travel extra miles to make a delivery happen, which could have been avoided if a better tracking mechanism was in place. Then there is the big issue with travel reimbursements for delivery executives. Without a proper tracking mechanism, the businesses have to believe whatever the employee tells and disperse reimbursements likewise. Therefore, businesses tend to overspend in this regard. Apart from this, a good employee tracking tool (meant for on-field executives) would allow the business to plan out the day effectively. Right in the morning, the executive has a fair idea about the listed deliveries expected for the day. The employee also stays happy with the schedule and logical route mapping for the deliveries. This helps businesses not only manage their deliveries better but also to keep their delivery executives happy!

One of the most important factors that will ensure efficiency is always “knowing where”. Through the SCM process knowing where your vehicles or employees are will ensure transparency. ETAs can be conveyed to the customer or to the inbound/outbound storage centers. As a result, preparations to receive or process the material can be made before hand to save time.

Tackle breakdowns & minimize down time

For long haul deliveries, tracking vehicles is one step closer to ensuring that the cargo reaches safely & in-time. In case of any delays caused by weather, breakdown, traffic or human error, the admin will be notified & immediate action can be taken with minimum down time. With the help of efficient optimization tools, the vehicle driver can be guided to take the shortest or fastest route while the employer can keep a tab on the transit time. Keeping a track of the Transit Time Adherence, the SC can be optimized further to keep a check on the total time the cargo spends on the road.

Constant communication between delivery & dispatch points

Communication at every step is crucial

With technology & communication media evolving rapidly, “knowing where” is more of a necessity than an accessory. End consumer businesses rely heavily on their deliveries reaching them in time. To provide a better consumer experience & a higher brand engagement, a simple tool such as last mile tracking can benefit a business in a big way. It can get your business an A-rating while keeping your customers patience in check in case of a delay. Knowing where your vehicle or delivery staff is will help you stay prepared to answer any questions or queries that arise.

Reduce Storage

The major cost in any SC is the cost of inventory storage. Maintaining a huge stock in your inventory that depletes slowly can suck your business dry. An inefficiently managed inventory is a proven road to failure. The answer to an effective inventory management – Tracking each entity in the SC.

How can tracking help in minimizing storage costs?

Inventory & storage

Once materials are dispatched, one can estimate the time of delivery & in turn calculate the Turn Around or Lead Time. Shift operations to a Just-in-time model to ensure minimum inventory. Orders for raw or finished materials at processing & distribution centers respectively can be placed based on this calculation. For perishables, making sure the cargo is dispatched/ distributed in time is essential to avoid losses owing to goods damaged in storage. Tracking can help prepare to receive & store such goods at the delivery center.

Managing Last Mile

Efficient management of your last mile deliveries is by far the most important process that needs extra attention. With businesses shifting to a Just-in-time model, managing the last mile delivery process is the most important factor that contributes to higher profitability. With an intelligent last mile management system in place, businesses can ensure that they shift towards a Just-in-time system & cut down on major storage costs.
