Simplifying the Logistics Updates Maze to Offer Unparalleled Customer Experience
The logistics industry is much more complicated than it looks to the end customers. All that everyone cares about is the timely delivery of their orders without any damage. If we dive deep to understand the mumbo-jumbo of logistics, it will take a lot to understand how technology, resources, and manpower are involved in offering the customer experience that everyone keeps on talking about.
Mauve lives in the U.S. away from her family which is settled in the United Kingdom. She’s sent surprise gifts to her entire family and is eager to know how they react to receiving them. After a couple of days, her mother called saying that the entire family loved the gifts sent by Mauve.
While everything Mauve had to do was ship her parcel through a CEP provider and relax till it reached her, the shipment went through multiple milestones, hubs, and modes of transportation to reach her family.
What does it take for a CEP provider to ship the parcels efficiently?
CEP providers usually have a wide network of hubs and micro-collection and distribution centers. The order gets picked up from the location by a Professional Courier and is taken to a nearby collection center and it will be checked in. Further, it gets clubbed along with other parcels(and a manifest will be created) and sent to one of the initial hubs via the CEP provider parcel van. It is further sorted out at the international packages and sent to the carrier hub at the nearest airport via a truck. After being marked for the cargo flights, it reaches the New Jersey International Airport via air cargo. The package will be checked in at the airport hub in New Jersey. Then the package will be scanned out and delivered to the local carrier hub via truck. After sorting as per addresses, a local pickup truck will deliver it to Mauve’s family.
