One of the biggest challenges for a delivery provider is achieving a successful delivery drop first time and missed deliveries are costly – estimated on average at around £23 per drop. Using mobile data technology to track items combined with proactive customer alerts plays a significant role in helping to achieve higher first time success rates.
