Why Use a Smart Delivery Partner?
Are you a growing business that carries out repairs? Perhaps your customers rely on you for certain parts or items? If so, there are many reasons why you should use a smart delivery partner for your business. Instead of trying to manage and organise your own deliveries, smart logistics is the answer. We look at the benefits of having a time-efficient and cost-effective delivery strategy.
The pressure of expansion
As businesses grow, there is increasing pressure on operational efficiencies and resources. How do you get the best performance out of your people and equipment? How do you keep your customers happy with consistent performance? And how do you scale up your business, so it can expand in a way that won’t affect your daily output and sales targets?
First, you need to know what you are good at and where your weak areas are. If you have a team of field technicians who work across the country, you’ll probably have made use of technology such as field tracking software. If so, you’ll know that due to the busy UK road networks, your engineers probably spend a lot of time stuck in traffic trying to get to their next job. If they have to go from hub to hub to find spare parts, this only adds to their time.
The true cost of collecting parts
Studies show that businesses can lose an average of £,8000 per engineer each time they have to travel to a central hub for parts. In addition, each trip costs £1,100 in travel and 520 lost hours. Instead of expecting your engineers to collect parts on top of their working day, why not switch to a specialist logistics solution instead? You could increase their productivity by 30%.
At GenRev, we deliver spare parts directly to technicians’ car boots, or another secure location, during the night to avoid delays caused by traffic jams. Our In Night distribution and In Boot deliveries are both cost-effective solutions for your business.
Using trunking routes and small vans, we deliver items from A to B using a highly efficient delivery network. Business-critical parts will always be with your engineers before they start their working day, allowing them to get on with the job at hand without any delay.
Smart deliveries equal better service
Cutting out spare parts collections for your field technicians ensures they can maximise their repair time. Timely repairs keep your customers happy, and this helps to maintain morale for your engineers too. So, it’s a win-win for everyone, including your business!
GenRev gets your spare parts to where they needed on time, so your field engineers and technicians can get straight on with their working day. As well as In Night and In Boot services, we also offer Just in Time distribution to help you minimise your warehousing and storage costs. This service enables smaller companies to reduce the space needed to store parts, minimises waste from obsolete stock, and helps you improve workforce efficiencies.
