The World Bank has said logistical costs swallow up around a quarter of Indonesia’s gross domestic product, citing bottlenecks in supply chains, long dwelling times in ports and lengthy trade clearances. Indonesia’s e-commerce sales are set to rise from 3 percent of retail activity now to 19 percent by 2027, Morgan Stanley estimates.
With effective schedules and permanent journey plans for the delivery and field agents, resource movement cost can be reduced while increasing overall resource utilization. Shorter distances traveled with lesser detention leads to higher number of deliveries fulfilled and visits accomplished.
Under-utilized capacity carries a clear cost which adds to the cost-per-unit carried by the resource. It isn’t feasible to run under-utilized resources to fulfill the ever-increasing demand created due to expectations of on-demand, same, or next day deliveries. On-demand and preferred slot delivery (or pick-up) is made more efficient with the use of an auto-allocation engine.
There is a way to bridge this gap, between the expectation and outcomes. And it is ‘tech-backed optimization’. Cloud-based optimization of resources, routes, and deliveries is the best way to ensure that your company not just matches industry benchmarks, but also breaks and resets them continually.
Each image holds some memory space in the delivery person’s phone and it uses some amount of data as it is transferred through the Internet to the client’s dashboard or central processing point. To ensure proper authentication, the image must have high-definition and should be clear. Storing and transferring high-def images in quick time eats up battery and data from the phone.

In highly unorganized markets (for e.g. the logistics sector in the Asian Market) it becomes even more difficult to introduce technology solutions that would not only ease the workload on employees but also introduce some semblance of organizational workflow into a haphazard operational process.
