As the cost to transport goods keeps increasing, businesses have started to use multi-compartment vehicles to save costs on logistics, and meet their delivery requirements. Using a compartment configuration for your delivery vehicle and adding route optimization to the mix will help your business reduce the cost of deliveries. A smart delivery management software will help you in managing your multi-compartment vehicles using a compartment configuration feature for deliveries from the warehouse to stores, or the end consumers.

 

Assign orders based on compartment specifications:

 

Using a multi-compartment vehicle, you can easily assign the orders based on the units’ length, breadth, and height or add the capacity using units, weight, and volume. Depending on the orders received, you can fill the compartments and let route planning help the driver deliver the orders using a sustainable route. Temperature setting is an additional option that the operations manager can configure to ensure smoother deliveries with minimum return trips. The orders are placed in the configured compartments to help load the vehicle (for transportation), enabling better planning and handling of the orders. 

 

 
Improving Fleet Efficiency:

When multiple orders need to be delivered, multi-compartment planning will help assign orders (within a geo-coded area) within the same delivery vehicle (instead of using multiple delivery associates to deliver the order). This will help fill your fleet to the maximum capacity and avoid rescheduling the orders. This will also help your business beat the driver shortage, as your fleets would be utilized completely, reducing the trips needed to cover your orders.

 

 
Faster deliveries, assured!

A multi-compartment vehicle helps your operations manager arrange the orders in a specific manner, which will help them manage the delivery efficiently. Once the truck or a delivery vehicle is filled as per the orders, you can be ensured they would be delivered at the earliest using advanced route planning software. Hence, assuring you of timely deliveries to improve customer experience. An example to ensure faster deliveries would be adding extra units in the vehicle (at the warehouse), so when the driver gets new orders (for the same items being delivered), they can be delivered faster (as they were carrying additional units before leaving for delivery).

 
Multi-compartment use cases:

  • Multi-compartment logistics can play an important role, especially in the grocery (retail sector), which needs temperature-specific planning to ensure groceries can be delivered as per requirements like deep-frozen, dairy, fresh, and ambient temperatures. 
  • They have use cases in the delivery of electronic items like laptops, computers, batteries, etc., which need to be transported at average room temperature (not too high, nor too low) to avoid damage to the batteries and casings. 
  • Transportation of medicines and pharmaceuticals needs extreme caution as they are temperature sensitive. Hence a multi-compartment vehicle can help ease your logistics needs.
