Navigating the Last-Mile Delivery Landscape
E-commerce is more popular than it’s ever been, and its popularity continues to grow. Consequently, there is a steeply rising demand for last-mile delivery services to accommodate this need. With this ever-increasing demand, what can last-mile 3PL's do to gain clearer visibility into their operations and further empower their business?
ShipTrack for Last-Mile 3PL's: Your Roadmap to Success
Consumers expect fast and reliable delivery options, accompanied by real-time tracking information, for their e-commerce purchases. If Amazon 3PL's aren’t equipped with these abilities, they risk losing business to competitors who can. Fortunately, ShipTrack is an easy and affordable way for 3PL's to provide consumers with real-time tracking information of their purchases while gaining several back-end technologies to enhance their business. Here’s how it works:
ShipTrack uses a wide variety of tools — a mobile app, self-serve portal, dispatch portal and administration, and tracking pages — to connect to internal databases that provide order information, status updates, PODs, and other information in an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. These tools allow ShipTrack clients to do everything seamlessly and efficiently; from order management to dispatch, and route optimization to proof of delivery — all in a paperless environment.
