Locus, a technology provider to logistics companies, announced the launch of its Order-to-Delivery Dispatch Management Platform during the 2022 Gartner® Supply Chain Symposium/Xpo™ in Orlando, Florida, held yesterday.
Locus’ real-world dispatch management solution helps enterprises seamlessly manage all stages of last-mile fulfilment on a single, integrated platform and transform these operations into strategic growth centers for their business. Advanced optimization algorithms and intuitive workflow automation learn from previous outcomes to drive more efficient dispatch planning, scheduling, and routing, and increased visibility, capacity, and carrier management under an integrated API-ready solution help streamline logistics complexities, maximize operational efficiency, and improve end-user experiences.
According to Gartner, “The increase in e-commerce operations required businesses to adapt to the pace of quickly changing customer demands to remain competitive. Many of the vendors have adjusted their applications to further support B2C and last-mile operations, providing customer engagement and other capabilities specific to last-mile operations like the use of external fleets.”
In today’s competitive landscape, quick and on-time deliveries are non-negotiable to customer satisfaction, retention, and growth. But while many companies might see last-mile logistics as simply a means to an end, they might not realize that optimizing these efforts can actually contribute to the bottom line. As we seek to grow and adapt our solutions alongside our customers, our global last-mile optimization platform will be especially critical in unlocking the potential for better business like never before.”Nishith Rastogi, Founder and CEO of Locus
Locus has helped a wide range of customers globally across industries – including Unilever, Nestle, Bukalapak, The Tata Group, BlueDart, and more – execute 650 million deliveries across 30+ countries across North America, Europe, Southeast Asia, the Middle East, ANZ, and the Indian subcontinent.
