One Million Deliveries and Counting: Elite EXTRA’s Delivery Network Triumph

by | Mar 5, 2024 | Blog, Delivery Network

Launched in 2019, Elite EXTRA’s Delivery Network has recently achieved a remarkable milestone: surpassing one million deliveries completed! This achievement prompts a closer look at the network’s functionality and the extensive efforts invested behind the scenes. From inception to execution, every step has been pivotal in reaching this impressive milestone, showcasing the network’s commitment to excellence and innovation.

What is Delivery Network?

The Delivery Network is a solution that seamlessly connects users with a diverse range of third-party providers via a centralized platform. From local courier services to expansive crowdsourced fleets such as DoorDash and Uber, the platform connects users to millions of third-party drivers across the country. Designed to prioritize user satisfaction, the platform facilitates clear comparison of delivery providers, empowering users to select the optimal option based on delivery time and cost considerations.

Major Features of Delivery Network:

  • Real-time provider cost & time comparisons
  • No individual contracts required with the providers
  • Centralized billing
  • Delivery provider analytics
  • Delivery automation
  • And much more!

Benefits Breakdown

Leveraging third party delivery services can have a plethora of benefits, but what makes Delivery Network unique is that it was designed with user experience at the forefront. Without getting too deep, the benefits of Delivery Network can be broken down into three major pillars: time, cost savings, and flexibility. Let’s dive in!


Delivery Network not only empowers you to accomplish extra deliveries throughout the day, it also allows you to complete them faster than ever. Remarkably, a recent study conducted among our top Delivery Network users revealed unanimous consensus on this benefit being hailed as the greatest advantage to using the solution. That is because the time saving benefits expand tenfold across your operations.

It all starts in-house; by outsourcing your deliveries, you’re freeing up valuable time for your employees, boosting productivity and propelling the progression of your business. In addition, the ripple effects of this time saved extend outward, positively impacting customer satisfaction levels. As your team refines its focus on core tasks, you’re better equipped to deliver exceptional service—resulting in happier, more loyal customers who recognize and appreciate your commitment to excellence. It doesn’t hurt that their packages are arriving quicker either!

Cost Savings

Maintaining and operating a fleet demands significant resources and financial investment. Between vehicle acquisition, upkeep, and compensating drivers, the costs accumulate quickly. Joining the Delivery Network helps you eliminate those overhead costs, offering a cost-effective and sustainable solution. A considerable portion of our users find that integrating their existing fleet with Delivery Network offers an optimal solution. This strategic blend allows them to bypass the need for one or two full-time drivers, leading to annual savings surpassing $120,000.

Beyond that, the structure of Delivery Network positions you to capitalize on substantial savings. With the ability to compare provider costs, you retain the autonomy to prioritize affordability–an invaluable advantage for budget-conscious businesses. Moreover, many of our clients find that the cost-per-delivery is often lower through Delivery Network as well. Finally, with billing structured on a pay-per-delivery basis for users of our Routing and Dispatch software, you exclusively pay for the deliveries you execute, ensuring optimal cost efficiency.


Flexibility in the Delivery Network shines through in your capability to adjust the solution to fit your business’s demands. This entails sidestepping burdensome contracts and shielding your enterprise from the impact of price fluctuations. By placing the power of choice squarely in your hands, providers are driven to continually vie for your business, ensuring a competitive landscape where your needs are paramount. Here are some notable highlights:

  • Single contract & billing for multiple providers
  • Protection from disruptions: No exclusive partnerships mitigate risks of provider failures or unwarranted price increases
  • Flexibility and choice: Empowers you to select the most suitable delivery option every time, enhancing control over time and budget constraints
