  • Bring delivery costs down with Lalamove multi-stop service

    Last mile deliveries can be the most expensive part of the entire product journey along the supply chain. They can be time consuming, reliant upon the delivery recipient’s availability and require a significant amount of manpower from drivers. This all means that if last mile deliveries are not executed smartly then the costs can quickly add up and risk taking a big chunk out of your profits.

    Optimising deliveries can therefore lead to big savings. By maximising vehicle capacity and creating efficient routes, more goods can be delivered in a shorter period of time.

    A multi-stop delivery could not only mean that your orders are delivered to customers faster, but they can also save you time by having to schedule fewer orders, leaving you with more of your day to concentrate on other areas of the business.

    How big can a multi-stop be?

    One key advantage of making a multi-stop delivery is having the ability to group your deliveries into one single order. With Lalamove you can add up to 20 different drop off locations in one multi-stop order. When using the web app you can simply check the optimise function and your route will be optimised to cover the shortest distance for your entire order.

    It’s also easy to track the progress of your multi-stop order thanks to real-time tracking technology. Notifications are instantly delivered when drop offs are made and the location of your driver is easy to track, letting you know when your customers are due to receive their goods.

    For quick and efficient deliveries don’t forget to add any notes to your driver. Including the delivery recipient’s name, phone number or even a gate or building entry code might help to remove any potential obstacles and speed the order up.

    Grouping multiple orders into one single delivery route can help to promote more sustainable delivery practices. A multi-stop delivery creates a more economical and efficient route for drivers which saves time and means vehicles on the road for a decreased amount of time. Fewer vehicles on the road can also lead to fewer emissions and less congestion in urban areas, something beneficial for every community.
