Advanced Dispatching Features for Enhancing Delivery Safety

Delivery safety is a critical element regardless of whether you are delivering a product or a service; Elite EXTRA has advanced dispatching features to guarantee delivery safety and streamline all your service operations. Below are ways through which Elite EXTRA promotes delivery safety.

Real-Time Location Tracking

Elite EXTRA has transformed the delivery industry tremendously thanks to its advanced and intuitive web application, accessible anywhere as long as there is an internet connection and a web browser. Full visibility of your drivers is one of the best ways to know about their safety status.

Real-time location tracking allows you to see where your drivers are, their speed, and route ETA on a live map. With a built-in Elite EXTRA’s messaging tool, you can communicate in real-time with your drivers and get status updates on the delivery process.

Speed Notifications

Elite EXTRA understands that speed, while on-the-road safety can have a significant implication on your delivery. Our system alerts the driver when they exceed a specific set speed and not necessarily the speed limit. The reason behind this is to observe delivery safety by not going at a high speed that may compromise the safety of the goods on board.

Read Out Loud Messages Feature

Road safety is one of the first things you should be thinking about before sending out drivers to complete a delivery. Our read out loud messages feature enables the driver to get crucial information without getting their eyes off the road. Driver focus is critical since distractions can lead to costly accidents.

Auto-Arrival and Departure From Stops

The best thing about the auto arrival feature is that it allows you to select a group of orders and automatically optimize them for a specific number of drivers and vehicles. You get notified about deliveries to enable you to monitor progress, ensuring no complications arise while on the road.

Driver Vehicle Inspection Reports (DVIR)

A DVIR is a formal report that confirms a particular driver has completed an inspection on a commercial motor vehicle. This feature shows that everything is well accounted for to promote safe delivery. Conducting pre-trip and post-trip inspections and detailing any mechanical defects encountered is crucial for on-the-road safety.

Photo Proof of Delivery

If your drivers are equipped with Elite EXTRA’s mobile application, they can take photos at the delivery or service point. All images are automatically uploaded on the web, where they are attached to delivery proof. The documents are then emailed automatically to your team or customers depending on your choice.

If you are experiencing a driver shortage, this is a problem you want to solve as quickly as possible. Luckily with the Elite EXTRA Delivery Network service option, you can meet strict customer time windows with ease by dispatching orders appropriately. Likewise, observing your delivery safety must be a priority, and that requires a competent platform. The best way to achieve customer satisfaction is by giving them the best service possible, and effective delivery is one of the leading ways to accomplish this goal.
