Delivery Service

Why E-Commerce and Delivery go hand in hand

The growth of e-commerce is showing no signs of slowing down across the globe. This will directly affect the transport and logistics industry, as these two are closely linked. Locally, we have witnessed the increase of MSMEs, particularly online sellers on Instagram, Facebook Marketplace, Shopify, and WooCommerce.

To answer to this need, Lalamove's on-demand delivery steps in as a reliable service that entrepreneurs need now more than ever. Here's why:

The value of delivery service in e-commerce

Running an e-commerce business entails many things, one of which is delivery. One major outcome from the pandemic is having everything delivered straight to the consumer's doorstep.
 
To meet and even exceed a customer's expectations, fast and reliable on-demand delivery service is essential. To keep customers happy, just prioritize their user experience, from purchasing to the actual delivery. 

 

What makes delivery essential?

With e-commerce, the way a package is delivered can make or break a business. One problem in terms of logistics can already leave an unpleasant memory about a particular brand.

Speed

Before, consumers are used to waiting for their orders for 7 to 10 working days. But with new delivery methods, many customers actually expect the feasibility of next-day or even same-day deliveries.

Having limited delivery options can result in losing potential customers. But with the right delivery partner, the more delivery options a business has, the better for the consumer. That is why fast on-demand delivery matters a lot. 

Coverage area

Another pet peeve of customers is reading "not available in [insert location]". This frustration is seen as a limitation by customers, and a missed opportunity for a business.

Don't let the unavailability of a product or service leave a lasting impression on customers. Instead of missing out on a particular market, go for a trusted delivery partner that caters to many serviceable areas across the country. 

 

How to improve delivery services

To make delivery services better for an e-commerce business, here are three focus areas every entrepreneur should start with:

1. Different delivery options

It is important for customers to have options to choose from. Next-day delivery has become more of the norm than one of many options, so be sure to offer this. Better if the choices include same-day and even long-distance.

2. Delivery rates
 
Affordability is always a plus for customers. With the right courier, customers will be more drawn to keep buying from a business. Make value for money one of the best things they can get.
 
3. Tracking parcels
 
With delivery options and affordable rates in place, real-time tracking is another thing that customers will appreciate. Having visibility on where their orders are once they have been sent out gives them peace of mind.

 

Choose the right delivery partner

Reputation is everything in e-commerce. One instance of poor quality delivery service can result in negative repercussions that can last for a long time. That is why one costly mistake in delivery is having the wrong courier. Don't just go for affordability. Choose a logistics company that offers all three components mentioned above. Doing so will help manage customer satisfaction and eventually boost sales.

Do not give customers any reason to post a bad review about one delivery. Prevent this from happening by going for a trusted partner that provides a hassle-free delivery experience.
