To Shrink Your Carbon Footprint, Start by Driving Fewer Miles
DispatchTrack’s route optimization reduces carbon emissions by finding the shortest routes between stops while boosting efficiency and engaging customers in greener processes.
62% of executives say they need a sustainability strategy to stay competitive, while another 22% believe it will be important in the future. And it’s easy to see why: studies have shown that 60% of shoppers would willingingly adjust their behavior to decrease their environmental impact, while 70% said they’d pay extra to support more sustainable brands.
Of course, driving towards green logistics isn’t just about optics—it’s about decreasing harmful carbon emissions and creating a more sustainable logistics program. Here's how DispatchTrack helps you do that:
- Reduced fuel consumption through route optimization
- Decreased reverse logistics miles via better customer communication and delivery tracking
- Decreased waste and greater delivery efficiency from end-to-end thanks to real-time visibility
- Greener delivery options presented to customers via self-scheduling
Sustainability initiatives ultimately need to apply to the entire supply chain—but a holistic approach requires end-to-end visibility and connectivity. DispatchTrack is an ideal technology partner when it comes to going green because our platform is built for precisely that.
Logistics and Sustainability Can Go Hand In Hand
It’s no secret that deliveries are resource-intensive processes – and that last mile delivery tends to be the least efficient part of the supply chain. Everything from packaging to fuel usage to waste makes green logistics strategies seem daunting.
That’s why if nothing changes, emissions related to the last mile will increase by more than 30% across the top 100 cities by 2030. Luckily, taking the first step towards more eco-friendly deliveries is possible with the right technology.
A Mile Less Driven...
By taking in all of a given day’s stops and finding the most efficient sequences and routes, we’re able to shorten the total distance that drivers have to travel in order to fulfill all of their assigned orders. This reduces fuel consumption across your fleet by as much as 10%.
Waste Not, Want Not
By giving you the visibility and proof of delivery tools to triage returns more effectively, DispatchTrack helps you significantly decrease the amount of waste in the last leg of the supply chain. All this is on top of robust customer communication tools that make returns due to failed deliveries less likely in the first place.
The Customer Is Always Right
Consumers are already putting pressure on retailers to offer green shipping options, which is why it’s crucial to engage them in the process. Luckily, DispatchTrack offers best-in-class customer engagement tools, including customer delivery self-scheduling.
