Did my deliveries really go according to plan – and how can I improve?

Delivery Planning

Chris Jones, EVP, Descartes, covers a number of points in his article in Retail Technology Review, explaining why companies that deliver should always consider what actually happened against what should have happened with their fleet deliveries. 

He covers the three key points to consider when comparing plan v. actual for fleet deliveries; 

  1. Starting with an optimised route plan 
  2. Evaluating the impact of changes made by planners 
  3. The importance of tracking execution and capturing deviations  

Chris goes on to explain how to compare what actually happened against what was planned and how technology and machine learning can assist with the review process to improve future deliveries.
