E-grocery is now becoming a preferred mode for shopping groceries, fresh fruits and vegetables, personal care, and dairy, among others. While the sector is still nascent, customers are flocking to these platforms to fulfill their daily/weekly needs. Thanks to the very nature of the grocery requirements, customers expect quick and efficient deliveries.
A leading E-grocery player in India, which has operations in 25+ cities and has over 18,000+ products on its platform, was looking to solve the following problems:
With Locus Route Planning Software onboard, the E-grocer’s orders are batched throughout the day. Locus generates optimum routes that maximize volume utilization, orders/vehicle and minimize travel distance, while ensuring that orders are delivered as per customer preferred slots.
In addition, Locus has modeled several on-ground constraints such as route restrictions, saddlebag constraints, base van counts, custom reports, etc that help drive high operational efficiencies.
The company achieved 99.5% on-time delivery, volume utilization of 95%+ and achieved a lower delivery cost and increased orders per delivery bike.
