If your business involves e-commerce, logistics or some form of delivery, then transportation is probably an everyday part of the business. Saving time on deliveries is one way to cut costs and improve profitability. 

Here are a few tips on how to save time during deliveries. 

  • Streamline internal processes from when the order is made to the final delivery
  • Map out your route so that you don’t waste time between deliveries
  • Consider peak traffic hours and known bottlenecks
  • Reduce paperwork by using digital applications
  • Rent a storage unit that is central to popular routes
  • Keep your customers informed on any delays, to avoid missing them at home

Do you have any time-saving tips?

This week we featured three local businesses that use one of our conveniently located storage units as part of their business operations. Catch up on who was profiled here.
