Need it Now – Where Technology Meets the Road
Being a courier company in 2017 has changed radically from the 90’s. There used to be a bicycle cult that enjoyed the art of weaving in and out of traffic as dangerously as possible while still getting the job done.
While this made for interesting headlines when a messenger occasionally got nailed, it wasn’t exactly the most reliable means of delivering packages in NYC.
Today , quick deliveries are more about technology. The tracking of the package from beginning to end and the means of transport chosen are always factored into the dispatchers decisions here at Need It Now Courier.
The other day we had to make a delivery in 45 minutes that involved picking up four boxes from 125th street and getting them to 23rd street. By means of sophisticated tracking we could see at a glance which messengers and which vehicles were closest and out of those who had the most likelihood to pull it off. The boxes were picked up within 10 minutes of the call by van and the driver knew exactly which route was fastest and was at the destination with 2 minutes to spare!
Another incident was a very large online retailer needed an item pulled from our warehouse in the middle of the night and delivered to a store by 8 am. The item was heavy and required a van. Using our inventory tracking and messenger status data base the best courier could be selected and the item gotten ready, picked up and delivered within a 5 hour window.
Of course the essential ingredient to all successful application of technology is the personnel who utilize it to service their clients. Our dispatchers are very seasoned and savvy in the field of warehousing and deliveries.
