Maximising the productivity of your business is just plain good business sense; the more deliveries you can fit in delivery route, the more profit you’re going to make. With today’s economic climate, small businesses are struggling to stay afloat, so maximising your productivity should be an even higher priority. But how do you go about doing that?
Delivery Quote Compare was created to help partnership courier and parcel delivery services with users who need a transportation service while offering users a simple, easy way to get a good price for their requirements. But it was also designed to help those in the delivery services find opportunities to fill gaps in their delivery runs and ensure their vans weren’t empty on the return journey.
The site is full of features to help your business increase. Registering is free and easy; there are no monthly or yearly fees to pay, which means no start up costs involved – great for a new business. Once you’ve registered, keep an eye on the active listings. You can bid on any listing placed on the site, the aim is to add deliveries on a route you already have, or to create a route from scratch and fill it with jobs you find.
You can narrow the active listings down by a number of different criteria. Town is obviously a useful one if you’re a bicycle courier; you’re going to be limited on scope so this feature is great for finding jobs that are suitable for you. Or you might want to add a delivery on a route that takes you past a particular town or city. Whatever your reasons, searching by town can help you plot deliveries in locations that are helpful to you, and by extension your business.
Size is also searchable. Depending on the space in your van, you can search only those listings with parcels that will fit so you won’t be trying to shove a wardrobe in a space the size of bedside table, or worse, on the back of your motorbike. For those with vans, it can mean your delivery run is completely full. Running empty is bad for business, and bad for the environment, so take advantage of the search capacity to ensure you’re full to the brim, both there and back again.
With a no win, no fee policy, Delivery Quote Compare is an excellent low cost method for ensuring you maximise your business possibilities. With a small success fee chargeable only when your bids are accepted, you can find those extra jobs you need without paying through the nose to do it.
