The pandemic changed how we viewed online shopping — in 2020, over two billion people purchased goods or services online, and global e-commerce sales are expected to go beyond $4.2 trillion in 2021. This means you’re very likely to receive a delivery package at work or home at least once every month.
With an increase in online shopping, businesses are constantly looking to upgrade their delivery management through personalization and automation. This means efficient delivery management is no longer a choice: it saves time, money, minimizes human error, and improves customer service.
Here are some dos and don’ts of delivery management:
Integrate Your Back-End System to Your Delivery Management System
Integration between systems will relieve you of manual work, especially when producing shipping levels. With this, you can print shipping labels automatically and reduce the risk of human error while also speeding the process of delivery.
Go for Automation
Increase Your Printing Speed
Pick Orders Faster
To maintain your supply chain cycle, you have to pick orders faster. This can be done using several ways, including:
· Design your order list keeping in mind where the products are placed in the warehouse
· Go for batch picking
· Calculate how long it takes to pick goods
· Understand the right way to handle products of varying sizes
· Investigate whether humans or robots are ideal for your warehouse
Use Artificial Intelligence

Don't Overlook Same-Day Delivery
