Optimising Delivery Navigation

Mobile Navigation App for Deliveries

Having a fully optimised route and plan for deliveries is one thing, but managing it in real-time with unexpected traffic delays, damaged or missing goods and failed deliveries is another.

Descartes Mobile™ Applications provide real time data communications to manage exceptions and eliminate traditional paper-based processes to improve efficiency and enhance the customer experience.


En-route capabilities

  • Turn-by-turn navigation to improve driver productivity and help drivers get to where they are going.
  • Plan vs. actual performance monitoring and alerting.
  • Automatic delivery status updates and alerts when designated routes are not followed or delivery schedules are at risk.
  • Real-time updates enable dispatchers to dynamically adjust routes based on actual performance and any changes to orders or deliveries.
  • Events such as arrivals, departures, and delays are captured and transmitted to provide an accurate status of the delivery schedule.
  • Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL): Use next-generation Global Positioning System (GPS) technology to monitor vehicles or people in the field for advanced plan vs. actual performance monitoring. Shipment status updates and system alerts can be automatically triggered when designated routes are not followed.

Customer success

Enable your drivers with mobile navigation apps

For courier drivers, GPS navigation apps have proven a lifesaver in figuring out the shortest and most effective routes to complete their deliveries.

While the majority of courier drivers plan their routes using their own local knowledge, smart navigation applications come in very handy if there are unforeseen traffic issues or road construction in areas that you are less familiar with.

A road atlas, which has likely been rattling around in a glove box for a good number of years, is probably out of date compared to working out a route using a GPS navigation app, which is reactive to current traffic conditions.
