Time is precious, and when it comes to business, it’s critical that you know where your consignment is and when it’s due to arrive so that you can get back to doing what’s most important.
If you’re looking for ways to improve your customer service or need a tracked courier service who can be at your demand at the drop of a penny, it may be worth using a same-day courier service who can provide secure online tracking during every point of the journey, including through collection and delivery. Save time by letting us schedule and manage your deliveries with secure online tracking so that you can follow the progress along the way.
In this guide, we identify the core benefits of using a same-day courier service who provide secure online tracking and take a look at how this can assist with your own general day-to-day operations.
Peace of Mind
One of the most beneficial factors of courier tracking is the peace of mind that it provides across every mile. As many industries can benefit from using a same-day courier service, it’s increasingly more important that businesses can trust that the consignment will arrive at its destination on time and without problems or delays.
This is also ideal for when you use a scheduled courier service as it can provide peace of mind that the consignment is on track and will be arriving on time. This can even save time and hassle with contacting a courier service directly to find out where the consignment is, as you’ll be provided with regular updates to your phone or by email to show where your parcel is.
There’s also no need to worry about safety and security or the wrong hands getting hold of your consignment, as the consignment will be in safe hands from start to finish. This is crucial for when consignments must be treated with the utmost care and security, for example, if your delivery is medical or legal and is sensitive or expensive.
Gone are the days when you would be expecting a consignment and would have no option but to wait or need to contact the courier service directly to find out the status. With secure online tracking, you’ll have increased visibility as to where your consignment is in the country. The tracking system will also provide detail about the parcel and show exactly when the parcel was sent for delivery.
Confirmation of Delivery
Need your consignment to only be handled by a dedicated colleague at collection or delivery? The great news is that with a secure online tracking feature, you’ll be able to see who signed for receipt of the consignment so that you’ll know who the consignment has been handed to with their name and signature using Electronic Proof of Delivery (POD).
This also means that you’ll have access to parcel tracking information, which will provide you with an exact timestamp of when your consignment arrived, for additional reassurance that the consignment has arrived on time. Not only does this assure all parties that the consignment has been successfully collected or delivered, but it also brings more accountability and ensures that the service has been carried out properly.
Better Customer Experience
Whether you’re a supplier using a courier service to transport retail goods to retailers or are a utility provider using a courier service to source parts for utility repairs, the use of secure online tracking can improve your customer service experience as customers can be provided with an accurate time of when to expect goods to arrive.
As an example, if a restaurant’s boiler breaks down and an engineer is waiting on a part to be delivered from a supplier, a utility courier service can speed up the process of the part being delivered to the engineer. The online tracking system will alert the engineer of when they should expect the part and therefore when the client’s boiler can be repaired.
You’ll be aware of exactly when to expect the parcel and therefore will be able to assure your customers that a product will be provided or service carried out.
Delays can be costly, which is why it’s important for expectations to be set when it comes to how you operate. Having tracking for your consignment will mean that you’ll know what to expect and when to expect it.
With the option for a same-day courier, overnight courier and even scheduled courier, the consignment will arrive when you need it most with tracking to show when you should expect it on the dot, and in the highly unlikely event that traffic delays are expected.
