On-demand Delivery Platforms
On-demand delivery platforms connect shippers with trucking companies. The objective is to have shipments delivered within a city, at a preferred time slot, with minimum fuss. It’s easy for any user – consumer, small business owner, large corporate – to plug-and-play. These new platforms increase reach, promote flexibility, and reduce costs. General customer expectations of choice and immediacy have been raised by the service they get on e-commerce sites. Today, last mile delivery shippers expect same-day service, with 23% of them being prepared to pay extra for it. The new platforms deliver the choice and immediacy that customers increasingly expect.
