The e-commerce industry has grown exponentially in the past two decades. Customer-centricity and user experience have become the focus areas, making last-mile logistics a key way to cut the clutter in such a competitive market. 86% of consumers believe that delivery is an important part of their online shopping experience as it is the only actual touch point for customers in the world of e-commerce, making it necessary for logistics companies to invest in digital logistics.

With high operational costs, logistics and distribution companies must use the most efficient vehicle routing software that enhances operational efficiency and increases first-time delivery attempts by optimizing last-mile delivery routes for zero-error ETAs and customer empowerment with real-time event alerts & notifications.
