We already have acquired a warehouse which will act as our depot for deliveries. The idea is to start off with one driver. Deliveries will only happen in the city of Auckland. As soon as a request from one of our clients takes place (via excel, integrations, bulk import etc.) the system should send labels that are needed to be pasted on the boxes. We want the system to divide all requested deliveries into 5 locations. LCL (local), STH (South), CTY (CIty), WST(West), and NTH(North).
In terms of algorithms (i.e. which deliveries are preferred over the other etc.) and the actual process of how things would be conducted is something that we are still not clear on. We wish to hear your suggestions and thought on this.
We want to provide service for the delivery of items to customers as well as returns back to the client. The system should have a SMS feature where customers know when their delivery is to be expected. Both clients and customers should have access to delivery tracking and any notes from the driver. Ideally we would like the customer to be able to bulk import or add orders themselves to the system through a client log in.
Earlier on I had made mention of integrations. In New Zealand clients sell through a website called TradeMe where lots of ecommerce sales happen. They sell through their own websites (shopify, etc.) If integrations can be made for this that would help a lot. When a meeting date is scheduled, I will bring you an example of an excel of what our clients used in the past.
If we were to describe the platform we would say that we are looking for something that is very much automated. We have used other platforms in the past for previous logistics ventures where we had to pick which delivery takes place each time. We expect to do this for urgent deliveries but not all the time.
As mentioned, there are a still a lot of grey areas and thus would like to have your assistance the help of your platform to help us start our business. We do plan to offer our services to other clients around one month into service as we have already been approached by a few companies, Because of this we would like the system to be able to support multiple client requests even though at the beginning we are only serving one client.
Please do let me know your thoughts and how we can proceed onwards. Looking forward to hearing from you.
