If you work with goods delivery to your customers, you know how difficult it is to organize the logistics of the delivery system. It may require tables, records, many hours of reconciliation, and the work of many employees, or it may be enough for one system that will do everything for you, also reducing time costs and increasing efficiency.
What is the delivery and logistics system?
First of all, we are talking about a logistics system for delivery companies - software that helps automate the processes of managing the delivery of your customers' goods and, in particular, logistics operations. Such systems can be purchased ready-made, or you can order individual development and get a solution that fully covers your needs and helps your business grow.
What are the options for delivery management software?
When you develop custom logistics software for delivery, these systems can contain whatever functionality your business needs. You can select them for yourself so that your software suits your needs as much as possible. But let's take a look at the main features:
- Automatic routing: you need to enter points on the map; the system will automatically select the most optimal route passing through all these points, considering the traffic situation.
- Real-time fleet tracking: you always know how busy your vehicles and drivers are, and you can also monitor the fuel consumption of each car, the speed of delivery of each product, and the efficiency of each unit.

- Automatic reporting: both you and your customers will get notifications as soon as the driver arrives at their destination; you will receive an automated report on the delivery of the cargo and the time it took to transport.
- Feedback handling: your users may want to tell you something, give them that opportunity, and make sure that all their wishes and comments are taken into account.
