Small businesses spend a lot of time fulfilling orders, and can’t access the economies of scale that large businesses benefit from. These challenges affect most small businesses, making up over half of the UK’s GDP.
Haste gives small businesses access to an efficient, affordable parcel service, without having to own lorries or expensive equipment. The cloud-based algorithm enables the platform to use third party lorries, returning from drop-offs.
Haste delivers increased efficiency to small businesses, new revenue streams for existing logistics networks, and cuts emissions by reducing the number of lorries on the road.
The Roller makes picking, and packing orders simple for small businesses that can’t afford costly warehousing.
The Cloud Algorithm
The Cloud algorithm collates data about lorry space, lorry journeys and parcel destinations. It then works out which third party lorry journeys would create the most efficient routes to get parcels to consumers.
At a glance, the Dashboard gives small businesses an overview of fulfilment and delivery. Use the interactive prototype here: https://invis.io/4X768USJR
Haste uses multi-channel notifications to keep recipients of parcels updated on the location of their parcel. From Haste's emails or SMS texts, they can click a link to see the current location of their parcel. If need be, they can then change the delivery address while the parcel is in transit.
