There is a global push for a seamless and affordable way to dispatch, route, and track local deliveries and tasks, yet the majority of companies don’t know where their fleet is in real-time and are unable to notify the receiver with live tracking updates.
An industry that is built on two-way radio and paper print outs is inefficient, clunky and up until now has been extremely expensive trying to manage drivers and late / missed deliveries without investing thousands in "big company" technology.
GetSwift has built a sophisticated logistics management platform that gives management visibility over their fleet, automates the distribution of task assignments with a proprietary batching & routing algorithm and communicates directly with the receiver to maximise worker uptime so they can fulfil more tasks.
Business owners who deliver can now increase repeat orders, increase average order size all whilst automating the dispatching and routing decisions and delighting the the customer with a real-time end to end tracking experience. All of this is now possible without having to invest thousands in technology.
The future of urban logistics is here!
