New businesses and services are starting up at a much quicker rate than ever before. With the shift in how people are more conscientious about what they eat, meal delivery companies have become one of these fast-growing businesses in a number of ways. These services include but are not limited to delivering meals for families to prepare at home(i.e. HelloFresh, Blue Apron) delivering food for restaurants(think UberEats and GrubHub), and providing an alternative to in-house meals at assisted living homes. This has created a great application for GPS tracking and management services. Here are several ways that GPS fleet services can benefit these businesses.
Deliveries can be More Accurate
Food deliveries can be time sensitive. There are often busy delivery nights. Fleet tracking can help ensure all deliveries arrive at the correct destinations and on time.
Cities are always growing and our mapping, powered by Google Maps, are constantly updated to ensure accuracy. This allows us to keep up with growth and expansion so that all meals make it to the right location and on time without getting lost.
Accurate Delivery Estimates
Most importantly, hot meals arrive hot! This is something that increases customer approval ratings and ensures they’ll order from your customers’ meal delivery service in the future.
Reduce Customer Costs
Fleet tracking allows customer to shorten their routes. This reduces the time their vehicles are on the road. Fleet tracking also helps to eliminate the amount of time their drivers spend idling while stuck in traffic by routing around the worst traffic jams. It also helps them schedule the routine maintenance they need to keep their vehicles operating in shape for greater fuel efficiency and fewer emissions, thus a smaller carbon footprint.
This is one of the top reasons to switch to fleet tracking for food delivery companies. They can eliminate a lot of unnecessary costs by making this one change. There is often wasted money on fuel, labor, and customer dissatisfaction because of inefficient routing. Fleet tracking can solve all those problems and more through routing optimization. It will save them a great deal of money in the process.
The big question to ask now is, what are you waiting for? Why haven’t meal delivery companies all taken advantage of the huge benefits GPS fleet tracking has to offer? All will do so eventually, so why not capture those businesses now?
