Efficiency is a must in today’s logistics operations and it is no surprise that technology can make it happen. Retailers and fleet operators are increasingly recognising the need for efficient last mile delivery. There are multiple factors behind this, including driver shortages and rising fuel costs, as well as both corporate ESG objectives and growing consumer sustainability expectations. All of which means businesses need to get more out of their existing fleet operation; manual ways of operating are simply no longer sufficient. Technology, such as advanced route optimisation and scheduling software can increase delivery density and delivery capacity by as much as 35% without having to add new drivers or vehicles.
To discuss the way tech can power the sustainability initiative we have invited Pól Sweeney, VP Descartes Fleet Solutions EMEA to our 24th May Delivering Green: Creating Sustainable Supply Chains online event. You can register now and learn more about Pól and Descartes below.
