At Andromeda we’ve been talking with our customers about how they are managing the ever increasing cost of delivery – labour and fuel costs have been rising dramatically.
Some operators are really struggling while others have been going from strength to strength.
We always recommend the No.1 thing a delivery operator can do to increase sales and profits, is to focus on their delivery times. This is a great driver of sales growth.
Many operators think they “cannot afford” to deliver on time – but looking across our customers, there is a strong correlation -better delivery times == lower labour costs. How can that be?
1. It typically costs the same to deliver on time, as it costs to deliver late. The driver still needs to go there and back. The difference is WHEN the driver is working.
