  • Provides end-to-end visibility from order planning to dispatch

Here’s how Locus helped India’s leading 3PL brand optimize last mile logistics. Watch now

Reduce transportation costs while improving service quality

Reduce transportation costs while improving service quality

Businesses are dealing with a constant rise in delivery volumes, high traffic, driver shortage, increasing fuel costs, and growing consumer demands. All these factors are driving operational costs up in a way that can completely squeeze business margins.

The Locus platform

  • Allows you to build the most effective delivery route, taking into account all on-ground possibilities.
  • Save on overall miles traveled and reduce cost per delivery

Automate package sorting

Automate package sorting

3PL providers have a huge dependency on manual processes for sorting high volumes of parcels and allocating them to the right delivery executives.

Manual sorting processes at delivery centers lead to increased error rates with higher human resource costs as well as processing time.

The Locus platform

  • Helps automate the delivery sorting process by creating distinct delivery zones accurately geocoded shipping label addresses
  • Save time spent on sorting packages by automating the process, thereby speeding up last mile deliveries

Locus adds intelligence to your warehouse operations with smart parcel sorting. Read how

Tackle disruptions with true end-to-end visibility

Tackle disruptions with true end-to-end visibility

3PL providers are often stuck with blind spots in the order fulfillment cycle which leads to extended delivery time, poor SLA adherence, and bad customer experience.

The Locus platform

  • Helps break down silos and offers true visibility across the entire order lifecycle
  • Lets you manage full last-mile logistics operation on a single dashboard with a centralized library of orders

Frequently Asked Questions

Locus Route Optimization has features which suit all the legs of movement. While in primary it could be 'Track and Trace' with smart insights, secondary routing challenges like fleet optimization, freight cost optimization, transporter ratings can also be handled by Locus. In case of last mile, the tool is exhaustive enough to handle any kind of business and operational constraints. Ex: SLA compliance, preferred delivery windows, distance reduction, reduction in number of vehicles, increasing orders/vehicle, route restrictions etc.

While primary movement is more static in nature, with very few touchpoints; route planning is still indispensable to achieve full truckload. Apart from this, tracking of vehicles on long journeys is of prime importance for supply chain optimization. With tracking, you can get deviation alerts, halt alerts, and also real-time visibility of fleet.

Freight contracts-cost based routing, fleet mix suggestion, ePoD, billing reconciliation, index to capture quality of order fulfillment, transporter/rider ranking, dynamic long haul routing.

Yes, fleet optimization is one of the vital solutions provided by Locus

Yes, Locus could help in increasing the probability of FTL over PTL.

Locus provides a dashboard which mimics a calendar. Planning your tasks/batches is typically just a four-click process. The Locus dashboard is designed to be simple and user-friendly, while featuring all the logistics solutions in one place. We also provide training and support to all the stakeholders to ensure a smooth transition. The dashboard is also available in multiple languages to support ease of implementation and execution.

Yes, users have a role-based access to the Locus dashboard.

DispatchIQ can optimize logistics on multiple parameters like total distance, time, cost etc. Our logistics automation algorithm is powerful enough to handle multiple parameters while taking into consideration any operational/functional constraints like fleet availability, delivery slots, traffic, route restrictions etc.

Locus can automate ongoing operations, which in turn would help in removing manual errors and reduce time, and give better visibility in all facets of the dispatch. This would improve the customer experience, and optimize operations in terms of fleet and distance for both B2B and B2C in LMD, while factoring in business challenges like SLA adherence, slotted delivery window, task prioritization etc.

Insights like planned tasks, executed tasks, SLA compliance of completed tasks, average distance per rider etc. are available on the insights page of the dashboard. It is highly customizable and can provide logistics and route optimization insights on more than 80 different metrics. It can also be edited by the user.

Locus offers static route planning through its zone-based route optimization offering. This comes in with a map builder view to create user-defined geographic zones. All route optimization then happens within the scope of these zones.

Yes, Locus has a drift parameter which is tracked against every delivery being marked as 'complete' by the delivery executive. This can be customized as an report/alert on the dashboard.

Locus' products have many peripherals/entities which act as a repository of such static information. The location master can store information like preferred delivery window for various days, address, geocodes and other static information.

In case an API integration is not feasible, batches can be uploaded manually to generate dispatch plans using the Locus dashboard.

Yes, the Locus delivery app captures the time stamp at various instances, using which the actual unloading time can be computed.

The broader KPIs that the company should track are increase in delivery per rider, reduction of riders, increase in SLA adherence, reduction of distance and time on road, volume utilization, increase in trips per rider and increase in first attempt delivery rate. However, the intangible benefits like customer delight through ETA SMS, track link etc are an added advantage.

Order delivery/cancellation, navigation, live tracking, POD (entirely customisable in different formats), & partial delivery, payment collection are among the features on the Locus delivery app.

Yes, you can configure any collection options you might require on the the Locus app.

Yes, tracking of the order can be done in real time by end customer, depending on different triggers such as fixed ETA or completion of previous delivery.

FADR depends on - getting the location of the customer right and then reaching the customer in his/her preferred time window. Coupling Locus' proprietary geocoding engine, which converts unstructured addresses into accurate latitudes and longitudes, with Locus' proprietary route optimisation engine Dispatcher, will help you increase your FADR. During execution, Locus will pre-empt late/incomplete deliveries and inform the customer.

Locus can integrate with any existing GPS vendor and take inputs such as lat/longs, time stamps, speed, temperature, rpm, etc.
