There is an increasing need for speed in today’s society. The capabilities of the modern connected world drive faster and more efficient processes that meet customer needs in record time. Additionally, living in a pandemic has fueled on-demand services, with surging customer trends aimed at speedier deliveries, specifically for the food and grocery industries.
As a result, most businesses face mounting pressure to keep up with the latest changes to fulfil the needs of modern customers or lose out to competitors that made the transition.
According to research, 70 percent of millennials expect delivery in one hour or less. The numbers are revelatory, considering that millennials comprise the majority spending group in society. Additionally, 56 percent of online consumers expect same-day delivery, while 61 percent are willing to pay a surcharge for the service.
With the paradigm shift in delivery standards seemingly unabated, your business needs a reliable delivery service to satisfy customer deliveries with minimal delay.
Ghost Kitchen/Remote Concepts on the Rise
Ghost kitchens have sprung up during post-pandemic times, essentially serving as F&B solutions without on-site serving staff or public eating areas. These novel establishments enable businesses to prepare and send food directly to offsite customers via delivery riders. As such, the success of these kitchens depends largely on the efficiency of delivery partners.
Similarly, with work-from-home and hybrid office arrangements comes an increased demand for home-cooked meals and routine food delivery. These deliveries need to occur promptly in restocking home supplies and ensuring that meals arrive fresh from the kitchen.
Trust and reliability are twin factors when partnering with a delivery service. Businesses need to ensure that orders arrive within agreed time-frames as much as possible (aside from unexpected scenarios such as congested traffic). With delivery services being the only physical contact between remote businesses and customers, it is vital to leave a positive impression with every order.
Notably, many grocery and food delivery services encounter stumbling blocks with last-mile services. 61 percent of logistic companies report last-mile services as the most inefficient operation in the supply chain. The contributing factors behind these incompetencies apply to delivery services, especially for small companies that lack the infrastructure to vet and approve the most trusted drivers.
Common issues may involve poor route planning (i.e., long travel paths and missed delivery timing) and outdated technology (i.e., poor communication among riders, delivery companies, and customers). As a result, businesses fail to meet customer expectations, resulting in poor reviews that harm their reputation.
With an advanced white label delivery service like Ryde, you can improve fulfillment capacities and consistently optimise last-mile delivery with minimal business risks.
