Strengthen Your Meal-Kit Delivery Ecosystem

Covid-19 has changed the game for one too many businesses, and one of them is meal-kit delivery. This subscription-based business model depends on a steady supply of fresh foods, perfect portioning and packaging meals, and on-time delivery. The logistics part of it is what is tricky. Ingredients need to be sourced from various vendors in local and regional markets while ensuring timely delivery. The few challenges of meal-kit delivery include:

Maintaining delivery windows

Maintaining delivery windows

The entire business model of meal kits depends on making the delivery on time. Consumers are particular about their time-slots, which must be adhered to. This means overcoming traffic, road closures, vehicle breakdowns, among other deviations.

Staying on your toes

Staying on your toes

Fresh food is a perishable inventory, and so, any changes to delivery orders need to be accommodated quickly. Some clients may want urgent deliveries, while others may wish to postpone, making dealing with customized delivery requests tricky.

Challenges in the last mile

Challenges in the last mile

Delivery can be a tedious affair with increased costs in the last mile. Making room for last-minute changes and additional orders pile on fuel, maintenance, and idling costs.

Retaining customers

Retaining customers

Food consumerism is ever-evolving. So, keeping up with the taste, trend and season is vital to earn customer loyalty. For this, meal-kit delivery businesses need to be more adaptive and flexible. Partner suppliers and 3PL companies that are quick on their feet are just as important.
