Better schedules create the space for greater flexibility 

For food and beverage distributors, excellent products are only part of the value they bring to their customers. Many distinguish themselves on the basis of customer service. But challenges in last-mile deliveries can impact on-time performance and undermine a fleet’s ability to meet their customer service goals.

Successful food and beverage delivery fleets must:

  • Maximise fleet utilisation and Minimize fleet miles

  • Consistently meet customer time-window commitments and minimise customer refusals

  • Accommodate both planned and on-demand orders
