GEODIS City Delivery’s Zipline

Connecting Brands, Packages, Drivers & Deliveries Through Innovative Last Mile Technology

Clearly consumers today expect a seamless and speedy online ordering and delivery process--one that would have been unimaginable just a few years ago. Industry-leading retailers like Amazon have made same-day or next-day delivery a given--with a few retailers aiming for even shorter delivery times. In the wake of this demand for accelerated delivery, digital retailers have had to become creative to stay competitive--and GEODIS City Delivery is right there with retailers to accelerate their success.

 

GEODIS City Delivery has always been on the forefront of fast and flawless delivery...

and with our recently updated GEODIS Zipline technology, we have enabled shippers to manage thousands of deliveries every week across the United States.

Now, as retailers’ customers demand faster service, our platform orchestrates the last mile logistics for the best customer experience.

 

As brands pivot away from a traditional warehousing/DC model, omnichannel solutions have never been more critical. By leveraging retail stores as an additional fulfillment point, brands can get their products into a buyer’s hands quicker. But even with this great shift in logistics, some challenges will carry over into 2021.

 

Simply put, “crowdsourced delivery” is hiring individuals to move products from a store to the waiting customer. Some of the best-known and most successful examples of this are the food ordering services like DoorDash, GrubHub, Postmates, and UberEats. These companies rely exclusively on the gig worker which gives brands a mix bag when it comes to the customer delivery experience. They are independent contractors, and, in this model, you’re limited on what you can instruct drivers to do. Not being able to customize the delivery experience puts brands reputation at risk.

 

GEODIS City Delivery helps retailers customize their delivery experience and does not solely rely on crowdsourced delivery teams. Our courier drivers are vetted through a rigorous selection process within each given geographical area. Once accepted, drivers see suggested delivery routes and schedules, and have up-to-date visibility to available orders in their area at any given time. All deliveries are secure are closely monitored so both the customer and the driver have complete transparency.
