Retailers play a crucial role in providing our communities with the products we depend on during times of crisis. During this pandemic, retailers are facing immense pressure due to leaner teams, an influx of inbound deliveries and frequent stockouts. To keep operations running smoothly and shelves fully stocked, retailers must ensure that trucks are getting in and out of the loading dock as seamlessly as possible.
What can you do?
- Support retail managers by proactively communicating when deliveries will be arriving, to ensure stores are prepared to quickly unload. As many stores are taking special precautions to prevent the spread of coronavirus and minimize contact between people, it’s crucial to provide as much transparency as possible into when shipments will be arriving at the store to help facilitate safe processes.
- FourKites allows users to set up custom notifications to help alert store teams of a load’s status, giving them relevant tracking information in a timely manner to effectively prepare staff and facilities for delivery.
