Make More Accurate, Profitable Delivery Promises Using Transit Data

Most digital customer experience leaders already know that offering a competitive delivery promise is a proven way to increase cart conversion and average order value (AOV). But — it’s critical that your shipping operations teams can keep your promise at a reasonable cost for the business. Too often, digital experience teams and shipping ops teams are disconnected, especially when it comes to the sharing of important data that can inform a more accurate delivery promise.

Meet the Future of Shipping: An Introduction to Closed-Loop Parcel

The world of parcel shipping has changed dramatically in recent years. Network complexity and customer expectations are both higher than ever. Amazon Prime has raised the bar for performance across the board, to the point that today’s customers now expect fast, low-cost, transparent shipping options. In fact, this has become such a deeply ingrained preference that shipping is now the 2nd-greatest driver of ecommerce growth, behind only price.

How Shipium's Platform-Wide Data Modeling Powers More Efficient, Scalable Operations

To truly modernize shipping operations and optimize for costs and performance, you need to look at all available data. This means both gaining leverage over your own data (historical transit times, carrier contracts & cost structures etc.) as well as considering outside data that impacts your network (weather patterns, unexpected carrier changes, macroeconomic factors like fuel prices.)

Make a Prime-Like Delivery Promise Part of Your Digital Customer Experience Strategy

As a retailer, it’s probably no secret to you that online shopping is a cornerstone of your digital customer experience strategy. In fact, you’ve probably already invested significant time and money to improve your brand’s shopping experience (streamlined website, personalized offers and product recommendations etc.) However, like most retailers or brands, you’re likely also facing a broader problem — customers’ expectations for the shipping experience have evolved much faster than your technology and strategy.
