13 Jul How can I make my courier service more efficient?
In the courier industry where the efficiency of your deliveries is crucial to your survival, fuel card and telematics solutions give you an advantage.
“In 2007, 21.5% of all retail sales in the UK were online”, this massive shift in the behaviour of UK consumers has seen an industry spring up overnight to service the needs of online retailers. An adverse effect of this rapid demand is the pressure it places on hauliers to deliver at pace.
As a self-employed delivery person, your biggest concern is meeting your delivery targets on time and somehow doing it in a cost-effective way to your business.
An easy way to save time and money is through fuel cards and telematics solutions.
