Flex time-slots – Expectations setting and personalization
Creating a positive experience always start with expectations setting. In ecommerce logistics, this concept translates to letting consumers choose a delivery time as part of the purchase decision and the checkout process. But different customers have different needs. Some need expedite delivery, some want to minimize the time window of an attendant delivery, and others care only about the delivery cost. Offer a dynamic set of time-slots options to support both the convenience shopper and economical shopper
Demand shaping – Keep control of delivery costs
Agreeing on a delivery time requires a subtle negotiation that needs to consider the consumer wants and needs and the consumer choice’s cost and logistical implications. By bringing an understanding of your last-mile costs, available capacity, existing and projected demand to the checkout process, and combining it with the dynamic slots capability, smart logistics teams can incentivize consumers to make logistically-friendly choices and find an optimal balance between customer experience and delivery cost

By adopting a CRM strategy, logistics teams can keep track of their customers’ delivery preferences and unique needs, and provide their drivers with detailed delivery instructions. Moreover, by utilizing a platform that keeps learning, they are better equipped to improve the delivery experience continuously. We call it Logistics CRM.
