Supply chain managers do not have to don spandex bike shorts should they endeavour to make more ‘green’ their freight delivery services so much as look to leverage those software- and hardware-based solutions that provide them with better demand forecasting options and traffic pattern recognition features.
This is precisely what ParceLive can afford the harried logistician as each tracker has the ability to capture data for up to 50 days while simultaneously alerting managers to any unanticipated changes in package location, temperature fluctuations, variations in humidity, drops, shocks, or exposure to light.
When coupled with GHG emission goals, these trackers can also ensure last-mile deliveries are only undertaken by foot, wheel, or electric motor in accordance with the wishes of environmentally friendly consumers.
GHG reduction and goodwill:
Building rapport with end users is, and always has been, important when it comes to boosting the life-time value of supply chain customers.
That said, and as consumers continue to track their own carbon footprints toward zero, shipping companies have the unique opportunity to generate genuine, good-news marketing content around how their adoption of smart technology helped reduce the some 28 percent of all GHG emissions attributed to the transportation industry.
Compare that to the 14 percent credited to cows and, well, maybe Shakespeare could be forgiven in trying to compare one bad situation to an equally disagreeable one.
Regardless of how one feels about classic literature, though, ParceLive makes easy not only off-peak routing and delivery consolidation across multiple carriers, countries, and time zones, but also provides the data to support marketing claims that will continue to bring in business year after year.
