If you’re in the floral business, then you know that timely and accurate local floral deliveries are key to your success. However, with today’s worker shortages and consumers’ increasing demand for quick deliveries, satisfying customers is more challenging than ever. How can you solve this issue and rise above competitors? The answer: join a delivery network.

delivery network can help you streamline your local floral deliveries while providing you with access to drivers who are already familiar with the area.

What is a Delivery Network? 

A delivery network is a group of independent drivers who have agreed to partner with businesses to make deliveries on their behalf. Businesses that use a delivery network can access a pool of drivers who are available to make deliveries when needed. This can be a convenient way to offer same day deliveries without having to hire in-house delivery drivers. Better yet, you are able to compare and contrast different driver rates to make sure you are getting the best service.

Why Use a Delivery Network? 

There are several reasons why you might want to use a delivery network for your local floral deliveries. They include:

  • You don’t have to pay for in-house delivery drivers: You no longer have to pay for the wages and benefits of in-house delivery drivers. This can be significant cost savings for your business. You can focus on the quality of your product and not have to worry as much about the bottom line.
  • Faster same day deliveries: When you use a delivery network, you can access drivers who are already familiar with the area and can make same day deliveries. This can be a convenient way to get your flowers delivered quickly and efficiently. You can also be assured that your flowers will arrive fresh and on time.
  • More delivery options: You have access to a larger pool of drivers who can make deliveries when you need them. This can give you more flexibility in your delivery schedule and allow you to meet the needs of your customers. When using a delivery network, you can also offer your customers the option of tracking their delivery so they can see where their flowers are at all times.
  • Proof of delivery: When you use a delivery network, you can be assured that your flowers will be delivered to the correct address and on time. This can give you peace of mind knowing that your flowers are being delivered as promised. You can also receive proof of delivery for your records.
