Same Day Delivery

What is Same Day Delivery?

A shipping model where a customer orders an item that can be delivered to their doorstep within 24 hours is known as same-day delivery. This service is applicable on most days except for festive seasons.

Same-day delivery not only means happy customers but also lowers shipping and business inventory costs, allows businesses to gain more customers, increases margins as well as business opportunities and gives your business an edge over the others. The logistics behind same-day delivery are as follows:

  1. Order Confirmation: When the system asks for payment from the customer during checkout, it carries out a fraud check. Once the order is placed, a confirmation mail is sent to the customer's inbox that also includes a tracking number.
  2. Order Processing: This step is carried out at distribution centers and involves picking, packing, and delivery of said products to the customers. Order processing depends on the nature of the product, packaging, shipping costs, and workforce productivity.
  3. Sorting and Delivery: Post sorting the package is sent out to the local destination hub where it undergoes sorting, scanning, and loaded to a delivery truck.

Same-day delivery saves time and is a great option for perishable goods as well as life-saving drugs.
