The Importance Of Christmas Deliveries Being On Time

December 07, 2021
Christmas Deliveries

Christmas is a time for family, friends and most importantly: Presents! Whether you’re a child hoping for some lego or an adult wanting a certain golf club, you can’t help but get excited about Christmas presents. However, some circumstances can result in those presents not making it under the Christmas tree this year. One of the main reasons for this is the gifts not being delivered there in time. In this article, we will show you how to make sure every present is delivered on time with MyRouteOnline.

Reliability

Your customers rely on your timely deliveries. They do not mind that there are supply issues or a drivers’ shortage. It’s not their problem that you are swamp with orders that must be delivered all at a certain time. Even if your route is ready, there are always last-minute orders and the route may change dramatically. Using a route planning tool enables you to see the quickest route to your destination as well as be able to see any potential delays. This will give you a better understanding of timings and will encourage your reliability amongst customers this festive season.

Deadlines

With Christmas being the busiest time of the year, many people will be ordering presents up to a few days before the big day. Therefore hitting those deadlines and making sure that deliveries are made on time is extremely important at this time of year. This can be a difficult thing to do without the right tools and timings. That’s why we recommend using a route planning tool to make sure that you always hit those deadlines.

Each route is optimised to give you the fastest possible route to a certain destination. Not only this, but you are able to add multiple stops to your delivery route. The route planning tool will then take into account each stop and give an estimated time for when you will start and when you will finish.

Reputation

One of the most important things to any business is its reputation. Having a good reputation will enable you to not only bring in more potential customers but also help you retain current ones. However, having and maintaining a good reputation can be exceedingly difficult during the Christmas period. Despite spirits generally being high during this time, they can very quickly decline if something goes wrong. That’s why getting a route planning tool for when delivering gifts can help build a company’s reputation.

Being able to deliver to a customer on time (or early) will give them a sigh of relief and provide them with an incentive to leave a good review. The more good reviews you can gain during this period, the better they will likely use you again in the new year.
